Tickle Toe by Count Basie. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1088). Tickle Toe is a real tenor sax feature. Hardly surprising, as it was written by Lester Young! This chart, with the usual Basie combination of flowing sax lines and punchy brass, is written in a minor key, giving it a haunting tonality. Quite quick, at 210 bpm, the chart itself is not technically too demanding, once your sax players have got their fingers around the tune. We have written out all of the solos (Tenor, Trumpet and Piano) and the chords too, should your players want to improvise. Another very rare chart, Tickle Toe is part of our expanding series of Basie charts that we think deserve wider appreciation. No sax doubles and the brass ranges are pretty moderate.Swing @ 210 b.p.m. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: C6, Bb6, G5, F5 Trombones 1-4: Ab4, Gb4, D4, Db4.

Lester Leaps In by Count Basie. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band. Swing. Medium Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1087). First recorded in September 1939, in the same session as Dickie's Dream, Lester Leaps In is a milestone chart which showcased the phenominal talent of Lester Young. The arrangement evolved over time, easing in tempo, lengthening and gathering more band backing, until we arrive at this version. This chart simply swings from start to finish. We have transcribed all of the tenor solos, also the piano solos and bass line too, though chords are provided on the parts should your players wish to improvise. If you have a star tenor player that you wish to spotlight, then Lester Leaps In is a perfect choice. There are no sax doubles.Swing @ 200 b.p.m. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: F6, Eb6, A5, E5 Trombones 1-4: Bb4, Bb4, E4, B3.

Swingin' Shepherd Blues by Ted Heath. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band. Swing. Medium Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1086). This version of Swingin' Shepherd Blues is transcribed from that played by the late, great Ted Heath. Unusually for a swing chart the tempo is pretty slow, but very effective nonetheless. This chart is a real contrast of dynamics, because it alternates from one or two reeds plus rhythm, to tutti fortissimo and back again. This arrangement makes a great concert piece and is equally suitable for strict tempo dancing. Lead Alto is on Soprano Sax throughout, and 2nd Alto is on Clarinet throughout. Trumpets 1-4 D6, B5, A5, F#5 Trombones 1-4 Bb4, G4, E4, E4.

Song Of India by Tommy Dorsey. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1085). This Dorsey classic is another great solo spot for Trombone. Based on a tune by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakoff, the original arrangement was by Tommy Dorsey himself. A well known piece, Song of India was originally scored for just 6 brass. We have augmented the chart to a full section of 8 brass. The Trombone and Trumpet solos are written out in full, though your 2nd Trumpet player can improvise a solo from the chords given. This arrangement sounds like the original article, and includes the Clarinets (Altos 1 and 2) scored in the intro. All dynamics and articulations are given, and these are particularly important to give the chart its correct feel. We have rated this as a Medium difficulty chart, though the 1st Trombone does go to high C. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4 D6, C6, G5, D5 Trombones 1-4 C5, A4, F4, Db4.

Moonlight Sonata by Glenn Miller. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band. Swing. Medium Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1084). Moonlight Sonata is a much underrated chart from the Glenn Miller book but one that makes the hair stand up on the back of your neck. It naturally features your pianist. The arrangement builds on Beethoven's work for solo Piano, and adds layers of rich texture and voicing in the way that only the Miller band could. We have written out the Piano part in full, and the solo in the lead Tenor part too, plus all of the dynamics and articulations needed to enable you to recreate the original sound.Apart from the Piano part this is not a technically difficult piece to perform. The brass ranges are moderate, the lead Trumpet only reaching a B, but there are a number of Sax doubles. Altos and Tenors all double Clarinets and the Baritone doubles Alto Sax and Bass Clarinet, although we have cued in notes for Baritone at the appropriate places, should your Bari player not have a Bass Clarinet available. A wonderful concert piece, or late-night closer. Swing @ 110 b.p.m. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: B5 G#5, E#5, D#4 Trombones 1-4: B4, F#4, D#4, A3.

Swanee River by Tommy Dorsey. Arranged by Alan Glasscock. For big band. Swing. Medium Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1082). This Dorsey classic is based on a 1944 version, when the Dorsey band was at its height. The arrangement went on to be used by the later Dorsey band under the direction of Warren Covington. It is longer than earlier versions, and also longer than the stock chart, with additional solo space for Trumpet and Tenor sax. The backgrounds and fill-ins are complete, as are all of the dynamics and mute / hat indications for the brass. We have included the famous Ziggy Elman trumpet solo which forms the first half of the trumpet's solo space. A thoroughly professional job from Alan Glasscock, this chart is right on the nail. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4 C6, A5, G5, G5 Trombones 1-4 Bb4, G4, E4, Db4.

Heading North by Ted Heath. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1081). A rare and unusual song from the Ted Heath book, Heading North is a 1957 composition and is a medium tempo (at 130 bpm) minor blues chart. It kicks off with a solo piano 12 bar lick (written), joined after by unison bones with sax answerbacks. Saxes then take the soli, answered by the trombones leading to a 24 bar muted trumpet solo (chord based - scored on all 4 trumpet parts) with sax and bone backing figures. Piano comes back in and the chart finishes of with a big tutti shout chorus. This is a fairly straightforward chart to play. We have graded it as Medium because the Trumpet solo is ad lib. Other than that the ranges are moderate and the chart is very playable. No sax doubles.Swing @ 130 b.p.m. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: Eb6, Bb5, G5, Eb5 Trombones 1-4: G4, E4, E4, E4.

Anvil Chorus by Glenn Miller. Arranged by Jerry Gray, Alan Glasscock. For big band. Swing. Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1080). Originally from Verdi's Il Trovatore, Anvil Chorus was a big hit for the Glenn Miller band, thanks to the fabulous arrangement by Jerry Gray. We have faithfully restored the original version here, complete with fully written out solos for Tenor and Trumpet. The saxes are voiced AAATT throughout, as per the original, and all dynamics are clearly marked. This chart is great in performance, and at 240 bpm you will need precision and nimble fingers to pull it off. Another fine transcription from Alan Glasscock. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4 Eb6, Eb6, Bb5, G5 Trombones 1-4 Ab4, F4, D4, C4.

Boom Shot by Glenn Miller. Arranged by Alan Glasscock. For big band. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1079). Boom Shot is a rare gem of a chart from the Glenn Miller book, co-written by Mr. Miller himself. It swings with a lilt (if not played too fast) and features your 2nd Trumpet as well as solos (written) for 1st Alto & Trombone, and space for some background improvised Piano too. The song itself is unusual, being not much more that an 8 bar melody, but the orchestration is superb and the series of modulations that run through the chart give the whole thing a series of constant kicks that keep it fresh and moving. Baritone doubles on Alto.Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: D6, C6, A5, A5 Trombones 1-4: B4, Ab4, F4, D4.

Cherokee by Charlie Barnet. Arranged by Billy May, Myles Collins. For big band. Swing. Medium Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1078). Cherokee was the first big hit for Charlie Barnet and his Orchestra, though when Billy May arrived for the 1939 recording session and handed out the parts nobody seemed that impressed with it! This is a good tenor feature, and a straight forward chart to play. The arrangement is full of interest. Glissing trombones, trumpets with wah-wah plungers, and some rich voicings in the saxes and ensemble sections. This chart is the one that set the standard for all subsequent arrangements of this Ray Noble composition. There are no sax doubles. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: D6, B5, G5, F5 Trombones 1-4: Bb4, G4, E4, D4.

I Left My Heart In San Francisco by Count Basie. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band. Swing. Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1075). This arrangement is based on a 1960s Basie instrumental version, in the Neal Hefti style. It is a laid-back, relaxed swinger, mostly in ensemble but with nice counterpoint passages of unison Altos and Trumpets against Tenors and Trombones. The tenor solo can be played as written or improvised, depending on your preference. Likewise with the little Piano fills and licks. This chart is easy to play and yet will give that wonderful relaxed, almost lazy sound that was the feature of so many Basie arrangements. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4 A5, F#5, F#5, F#5 Trombones 1-4 F4, D4, D4, F3.

On The Sunny Side Of The Street by Tommy Dorsey. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band. Swing. Medium Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1073). Made famous by the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, this instrumental version of Sunny Side of the Street is taken from our Vocal version. The form and structure is based on the original Dorsey version, including the unique intro, where we have wrtten out the bass 'solo' and piano fills too. The lead Trumpet range in the last bar goes to a high F, but we've cued alternative notes which keep the range here to top C#. The audio sample is not a real recording, but will give you the essence of the chart. No sax doubles, and the brass ranges are moderate. The saxes take the 'vocal' chorus, backed by Trombones and Trumpets.Style: Swing @ 115 b.p.m. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: C#6, C#6, Ab5, Gb5 Trombones 1-4: B4, E4, Eb4, Eb4.

Flight of the Foo Birds is one of the great tracks from the Basie band of the 1950s, and one of a series done for the band by Neal Hefti, to be found on The Atomic Mr. Basie album. This is a transcription of the original arrangement, and includes fully transcribed Trumpet, Alto and Tenor solos, plus the Piano fill-ins and even the 2 bar drum solo leading into the shout chorus.

This is the 1966 Ellington version of Strayhorn's great tune, with Cootie Williams' trumpet solo (written on the 4th part) transcribed in full. This version also features an extended ending, giving more Trumpet solo time. Originally written for four saxes and seven brass, this version is scored for full sections. An excellent job of transcription by Jon Harpin, and a worthy addition to any library. Swing @ 166 b.p.m. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: C6, G5, B5, D6 Trombones 1-4: A4, A4, C3, F4.

Skin Deep by Louie Bellson. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1070). A great swing chart from the pen of Louis Bellson, Skin Deep opens with a big half-time fanfare and then breaks into up-tempo swing. The Saxes lead the first chorus and the brass are loud and punchy behind. With some great unison runs and Trombone passages, the real driver of this number is the Drummer. There are four drum solo passages, with the last one being as long as you like. It leads the band into a huge climactic finish. Teriffic fun.

Well Get It by Tommy Dorsey. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band. Swing. Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1069). Sy Oliver wrote a number of memorable charts for the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, such as Opus One and Swanee River. However, Well Get It is one of his finest, and yet not best known. A thumping swing chart that features first and second trumpet in a great duet near the end, and also including the original (written out) solos for trombone, clarinet and tenor. If you play to a jive or jitterbug crowd they will love this. Be warned though - it is a tough blow for the trumpets. The lead range is to high G and the second to high D. Second alto takes the clarinet double.

Basie's Blues In C arranged by Jon Harpin. For big band. Swing. Medium Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1068). A superb original composition from Jon Harpin, featuring your Pianist and Trombone. Basie's Blues is a really laid-back number, but with plenty to interest all your players and any audience. This chart, whilst a tribute to the Count, is scored and voiced in a contemporary way, making it sound rich and full-bodied. It is also around 6 minutes long, so is great value. There is a long Sax passage that will need rehearsal, to get the phrasing and feel right. We have graded this as a 'medium/advanced' chart. The audio is just the first 2 minutes.Swing @ 100-120 b.p.m. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: D6, B5, Bb5, Bb5 Trombones 1-4: A4, G4, E4, B3.

Basie X.P. is an up tempo original composition from Jon Harpin in true Basie style. Great ensemble scoring coupled with written out Basie style solo for piano. The main focus of the chart is an extended solo for your Tenor player, conceived as a 'romp? a la 'Lock Jaw Davis in 'Whirlybird?, and can be as long as desired. The brass ranges are not very demanding, making the chart very playable. We aim to offer a full recording of this arrangement later in the year. In the meanwhile the mp3 will give you the flavour of the chart. Swing @ 225 b.p.m. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: Eb6, B5, G5, F5 Trombones 1-4: A4 Gb4, E4, C4.

Jazz Me Blues by Woody Herman. Arranged by Bob Martin. For big band. Swing. Medium Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1059). This is pure Woody Herman, and a great transcription by Bob Martin of the original Nat Pierce chart. The Jazz Me Blues is an old dixieland tune of the 1920s, and this arrangement lifts it into a new sphere altogether. Written in the 'Four Brothers' style, it is scored for three Tenors, Baritone and Clarinet (though we include duplicate parts for Alto sax, making it playable by a standard section line-up with Tenor lead), with solo's for Cclarinet, Tenor and Trombone. With a nice arranging twist there is even a cameo passage of dixieland built into the final chorus, just to remind us where the tune originally came from. A cracking swing chart. Ranges: Trumpets 1-5 G6, D6, Bb5, G5 Trombones 1-4 G4, Gb4, E4, E4.

That's Where It Is by Woody Herman. Arranged by Bob Martin. For big band. Fast Swing. Advanced. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1058). A ripsnorter of a number, based on the original Woody Herman version. A brief punchy start introduces a piano solo - a real opportunity for your pianist to show off a little. The sequence is repeated, and then the band's in, with saxes taking the tune and brass backing. Solo's for tenor and trumpet, followed by a very fluid and yet punchy tutti passage, leading to a re-statement of the theme and tight ending. Difficult to describe, so why not listen to a Herman recording and you'll get the idea!! Bob's Chart is written for 5 trumpets, but is equally playable with 4. Although it is a fast number it's not that hard, once you've got your fingers round it!! The live mp3, which has an extended opening piano solo, is complete. Ranges: Trumpets 1-5 C6, A5, F5, D5, D5 Trombones 1-4 Bb5, G4, F4, D4.

Tail End Charlie by Glenn Miller. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1056). Another Bill Finegan masterpiece, Tail End Charlie was made famous by Miller's Army Air Force Training Command Band. The 'Tail-end Charlie' was the rear gunner in a bomber - often the first line of defense -and probably the most exposed position of any crewmember. This mid-tempo swing chart has unison saxes carrying the theme, backed by muted brass figures, building into a key-change bridge to introduce the baritone solo. The whole number reaches a peak with a written-to sound-ad-lib trumpet solo, before the theme returns, repeating to a fade-out, (a well-tried Miller effect) with final tutti crescendo to end with.

Beaver Junction by Count Basie. Arranged by Count Basie. For big band. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1052). Beaver Junction is another classic swing chart from the Basie band, and part of our continuing Basie re-creation project. Written by Harry Edison, this chart, whilst still being a punchy swing tune, shows the way for others such as Cute, as unison muted Trumpets take the melody. There are a couple of fine Sax soli pasages in this arrangement, a small cameo solo for Trumpet 2, and the Basie piano intro that became something of a hallmark. Not technically difficult, this chart requires precision and good section work to do it justice. Great for dancing or concert work. No sax doubles. Swing @ 160 b.p.m. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: E6, C6, C6, C6 Trombones 1-4: A4, F4, C4, Bb3.
