When Lights Are Low by Benny Carter. Edited by Jeffrey Sultanof. For big band. Jazz, Swing. Medium. Score and parts. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-8460). Background: In 1935, Carter left the United States to play and write in Europe, and his presence there had an immediate effect on European jazz and dance musicians. After staying in France for nine months, Carter accepted an invitation to arrange for the BBC Dance Orchestra under the direction of Henry Hall, and while he could not play with the orchestra because of British music union rules, he could play on a series of recordings contracted by the Vocalion (UK) label. The Music: On June 20, 1936, Carter and a quartet (which included Americans Gene Rodgers and Bernard Addison) made the first recording of 'When Lights Are Low' with a vocal by fellow expatriate, vocalist Elisabeth Welch (lyrics were written by Spencer Williams). The first recording of the song for big band was recorded in Holland by the Kai Ewans Orchestra, and the song became the band's theme. Carter took the vocal himself on this recording. 'When Lights Are Low' is Carter's most popular song, recorded many times over the years. Perhaps the most famous version was made by Miles Davis in 1953, who unfortunately used a different bridge than the one Carter wrote, and this 'bridge' has been recorded many times in error. The arrangement presented here was first performed by an all-star big band led by Carter for a concert at Princeton University on December 3, 1973. The parts reveal that Carter made quite a few changes over many performances of this setting; there are cross-outs, paste-overs and rewrites in pencil by several hands. This is the final version of Carter's arrangement. Notes to the Conductor: Benny Carter's arrangements are models of taste, economy and they warrant study by students and professionals alike. They are almost Mozartean with regard to voice-leading and clarity, with not one wasted note. Many have saxophone soli for which Carter was well-known. 'When Lights Are Low' is not difficult and can even be played by many Middle School bands. But like Mozart, this music does present challenges that can test a professional ensemble. The sax soli must sound like one person, and since the baritone saxophone doubles the first alto, both players should practice together to master the intonation challenges in the high register. Articulation should be followed exactly, and the piece should not be played too fast. Finally, please make the distinction between the swing eighth and the dotted eighth-sixteenth figures, but such figures should not sound overly exaggerated. There are no saxophone doubles.

I Get A Kick Out Of You by Frank Sinatra. Arranged by Neal Hefti, Jon Harpin. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2085). Taken down from Sinatra's 1962 Reprise recording 'Sinatra and Swingin' Brass,' I Get a Kick Out of You has become a Sinatra classic and a much requested tune. The original arrangement was done by Neal Hefti (a familiar name to Count Basie fans) and his style is clearly apparent throughout the chart. Jon Harpin has produced a superb recreation of the original, and it swings from start to finish. We have written out Sinatra's vocal line, for those of you who wish to emulate the master. The chart is technically not that difficult, but needs crispness and precision to make it come alive. The Trombones are scored for 3 Tenors and Bass, and there are no Sax doubles. Swing @ 175 b.p.m. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: C#6, Bb5, Bb5, Bb5 Trombones 1-4: B4, G4, F4, D4 Vocal key: Db,D; Male Bb2 - E4 (10 steps).

Lonely Moments by Mary Lou Williams. Edited by Jeffrey Sultanof. For big band. Written for Duke Ellington. Jazz, Swing. Difficult. Score and parts. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-8776). Mary Lou Williams left Andy Kirk's band in May of 1942, and traveled with her husband, trumpeter Shorty Baker, who was a member of Duke Ellington's band. She composed and arranged quite a few pieces for Ellington, including an arrangement of 'Blue Skies' that was recorded at Carnegie Hall (for some unknown reason Ellington introduced the piece as 'Trumpets No End'). She also composed several other pieces that were not recorded including Aries Mood (Ben Webster feature), Scorpio, and this arrangement of Lonely Moments, a version of which was recorded by Benny Goodman. Recently this arrangement has been recorded by the Dutch Jazz Orchestra on their tribute to Mary Lou Williams. We are not entirely sure why this arrangement wasn't recorded when it was written, but our guess is that it was a bit 'modern' sounding even for Duke Ellington. This is a great arrangement that features solos for trumpet and tenor saxophone.
