Mission To Moscow by Glenn Miller. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band. Swing. Advanced. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1026). This song was written by Mel Powell when he was pianist with the Goodman orchestra, and it was a hit in 1942. Glenn Miller, whilst in charge of the US Army Air Force Training Command Band, used it as a vehicle for showing the Clarinet skills of Peanuts Hucko. It also fitted well into a series of numbers that were 'patriotic? and supported the war effort. Tunes such as Keep Ema!! Flying, Tail End Charlie and Jeep Jockey Jump. This is a great punchy swing chart, and you will need a good Clarinet player to do it justice. Lead Alto doubles Clarinet, Baritone doubles Alto.

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.

In The Mood by Glenn Miller. Arranged by Alan Glasscock. For big band. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1099). For the first time ever, here is an authentic version. In the Mood? Surely everyone has this in their library we hear you cry. This tune is one of the most requested songs for bands to play, yet the stock chart doesn't swing and the band hates playing it. We have not included an audio here - everyone already knows it. OK. Now for some background. There is no definitive version of this Miller tune because it evolved over time, from Civilian band, Air Force band, the film version (Sun Valley Serenade) and so on. Here is what we have done. Ours is a fusion of the Civilian band and SVS version. The saxes are re-voiced to AAATT, so the 1st tenor player now has playable fingerings and the note-doubling in the stock has gone. The rhythm lines are now right, so the chart doesn't come to a grinding halt in the middle 8 and trumpet solo. The sax solos are now for two Tenors, as they should be. The backing behind the Trumpet solo is now right, with no Trombones here at all. The Miller band used this space for a bit of Trombone-waving. The last fade-out chorus contains the quasi-bass solo, with saxes only playing the top note of the riff. The Trumpet run-up at the end is now right and our chart has ALL of the articulations and dynamics neded to reproduce the authentic feel. This is a superb job of transcription by Alan Glasscock, and we implore you - throw out yours and buy this chart, so when the crowd calls for the tune you will WANT to play it. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: C6, D6, Bb5, Bb5 Trombones 1-4: Ab4, Ab4, Ab4, Ab4.

Tuxedo Junction by Gene Krupa. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band. Swing. Medium Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1113). More 'Bluesey' than the Miller version, this arrangement from the Gene Krupa orchestra makes a refreshing addition to any library. The chart features some lovely Guitar and Alto solo cameos and a solo spot for Clarinet (1st Tenor), plus some flowing brass choruses. Whilst the Miller-style Trombone plunger figures are nowhere to be found, the brass sections do have the chance to wave their rubber near the end of the chart, and the Trombones round the piece off with pedal note doo-wops. The saxes are scored for 3 Altos & 2 Tenors, and 1st Tenor doubles Clarinet. The Guitar solos are cued onto the Piano part should you lack a Guitarist. The brass ranges are very moderate and we have graded the piece as Easy / Medium, as the Clarinet solo (as written) gets a bit busy in one bar, though your player can always improvise over the chords instead. Swing @ 105 b.p.m. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: C6, G4, F4, Eb4 Trombones 1-4: Bb4, Gb4, Eb4, C4.

Sleepy Lagoon by Harry James. Arranged by Alan Glasscock. For big band. Swing. Medium Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1118). Although composed originally as a waltz, this version from the Harry James orchestra is firmly in 4:4 time. Alan Glasscock has transcribed this chart beautifully, and has re-scored the string lines into the band, making this chart playable as with a standard 5,4,4,4 line up. The arrangement features Trumpet, as you might expect with a James chart, and also a solo spot for Trombone. This is a really lush, fat tune, full of dynamic contrast and soaring modulations. Your Pianist will need to be nimble and smooth in the intro, to make the rolling arpeggio figures flow like the waves lapping on a tropical shore. There are some Sax doubles too; both Altos use Clarinets, Baritone doubles Alto and Lead Alto has a toot of Flute in the intro. Swing @ 90 b.p.m. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: B5, E6, F#5, D5 Trombones 1-4: B4, E4, C4, A3.

Basie Boogie by Count Basie. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1137). Basie Boogie is, as its name might suggest, an up-tempo piano feature that swings from top to toe. Like many of Basie's charts, the arrangement evolved over time, but this version is from the original recording. We have written out the Piano part in full to include the licks and fills and the boogie-woogie left hand patterns, though your player can improvise from the chords if needs be. The band parts are not demanding, and fairly sparse, leaving the Pianist all the space needed to do his thing. A rare chart and a real gem. There are no sax doubles. Trumpets 1-4: D6, A5, A5, A5 Trombones 1-4: G4, G4, G4, G4.

Perdido by Duke Ellington. Arranged by Klauss Lessmann. For big band. Swing. Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1158). Perdido was one of Duke Ellington's early big hits. Many arrangements have been made of this chart over the years - lots of them at a flat out tempo. The Duke's version is a very laid-back swinger that chugs along in a steady groove. The chart opens with a cameo Piano solo, the Bari Sax picks up the tune and improvises on the repeat, with the brass plunger figures pulsing away behind it. The middle 8 is taken as a Trumpet solo (written out) and on it goes! This chart is a solo feature for Tenor 2 and Trumpet, as both have improvised solos, and there is a lovely example in the last chorus of the sort of instrumental voicings for which the Ellington band was later so famous. Tenor 1 doubles Clarinet and there are no other sax doubles. Another excellent arrangement by Klauss Lessmann. Swing @ 132 b.p.m. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: G5, C6, E5, B4 Trombones 1-4: G4, F4, D4, Bb3.

Woodchopper's Ball by Woody Herman. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band. Swing. Medium Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1160). Here is the great Woodchoppers Ball. Co-written and first performed by Woody Herman, this chart became a mainstay in the repertoire of all Herman's bands. Our version is based on Woody's, though rescored for regualar sections (Saxes AATTB, 8 brass). This arrangement features solo space for Clarinet (on 1st Alto part), Tenor, Trumpet and Trombone, and has that characteristic chromatic set of key changes at the end that gives the whole chart a thumping climax. A superb swing chart. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: A5, F5, D5, C5 Trombones 1-4: Bb4, Bb4, Bb4, Bb4.

All Of Me by Count Basie. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1172). This version is a transcription of Basie's performance from the "Sinatra at the Sands" album, and it differs slightly from the great Billy Byers studio version of the chart. It opens with a floating Piano solo, and the Piano takes the first chorus, with sparse backings from the band. The second chorus is ensemble, with some beautiful harmonic structured writing, and the Piano solo comes back for the third, with some classic call and response with the band. The chart must be taken at a laid-back pace, and your band needs to observe the written dynamics and articulations in order to achieve the right feel. The Piano part is written out "as played", though we've added in the lead line at the start of the second half of the first chorus, where Mr. Basie chose not to play at all. The chart is graded as 'Medium' even though the lead Trumpet has a written high F. The 4th Trombone is Bass. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: F6, D6, A5, F5 Trombones 1-4: B4, G#4, F4, D4.

Paganini Caprice XXIV by Benny Goodman. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band. Swing. Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1214). In 1941 Skippy Martin took the 24th of Niccolo Paganini's caprices for solo violin, and turned it into a big swinging chart for the Benny Goodman Orchestra. The original has been adapted and expanded, scoring it for a regular AATTB Sax team, and 8 Brass. Your Alto 2 player doubles Clarinet, and has the entire Benny Goodman solo, written out in full. Tenor 1 takes the Vido Musso solo, and the Mel Powell piano solo is also fully scored. This is a VERY rare chart from the Goodman era, and a fine addition to any library. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: C6, A5, F5, D5 Trombones 1-4: Bb4, G4, E4, C4.

White Cliffs Of Dover arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2070). Immortalised by Vera Lynn in the 1940s, this tune came to symbolize hope in troubled times, though it is also a lovely melody in its own right. This arrangement is a smooth, flowing ballad in the '40s style, making full use of dynamic expression, muted and open brass, plus some Miller-voiced sax passages. Slightly nostalgic perhaps, but always popular. In the key of Ab, the vocal range is from Ab below, to C above middle C. Lead Alto doubles Clarinet, Baritone doubles Alto. The complete mp3, taken from a live gig, is courtesy of The Strayhorns, with Nou Nou on vocal. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: Bb5, G5, F5, D5 Trombones 1-4: Ab4, F4, Eb4, C4 Vocal ke: Ab (Ab3-C5).

Manhattan Spiritual by Ted Heath. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2402). Manhattan Spiritual is a wonderfully uplifting swing chart, as its name might suggest. Originally scored in the late 50s by Reg Owen for the Ted Heath band, this chart was also a feature for Owen's own outfit, and that of Jack Parnell too. The arrangement starts and ends with a chorale-style fanfare, and swings like crazy in between. Plenty of hand claps from all sections of the band add to the rousing nature. We have scored this chart for a regular big band and a timpanist, though the timp notes are cued onto the Piano and Drum parts and the chart works equally well without the kettles. The last few bars are a bit of a scream for the Trumpets (with lead up to high F and second to high D) but the section can be taken down the octave if needs be. Both Altos double Clarinets. Swing @ 200 b.p.m. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: F6, Db6, Bb5, F5 Trombones 1-4: Cb4, Bb4, Ab4, C4.

Strictly Instrumental by Harry James. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LLM-1182). A hit for the Harry James Orchestra, this transcription is taken from James' 1955 studio recording. It is a medium tempo trumpet & tenor feature that just grooves along at a relaxed pace, with a bluesy laid-back feel. James' trumpet solo has been written out in full (including the scream up to super G), but the tenor solo has been left open for improvisation by your player. The brass ranges call for trumpets 3 & 4 to reach high Bb and trombones to reach high A in the unison pasages, though the feel of the chart will not be lost if some of the players drop down an octave. There are no sax doubles.

Nightmare by Artie Shaw. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band. Swing. Easy (Advanced Clarinet). Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LLM-1225). Nightmare was Artie Shaw's theme song and is an out and out clarinet feature. Shaw's solo has been written out completely, but please be aware that it is very tricky to play. Also, an alternative clarinet solo part has been supplied with this chart which retains the essence of Shaw's intent but is much more straighforward to play, making the chart playable by all. The reeds are scored for solo clarinet and 5 saxes (AATTB), and to give you flexibility in the section an extra alto part - the Tenor 1 part transposed - has been included making the saxes AAATB. If you need to drop a sax part because you only have 5 in the section and one playing the solo lead, the alto 1 is the one to lose. Aside from the solo clarinet, all the other parts are easy.

Down South Camp Meeting by Benny Goodman. Arranged by Fletcher Henderson. For big band. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1274). Down South Camp Meetin' is another great Fletcher Henderson chart as performed by Benny Goodman's orchestra. The original arrangement has been adapted to bring it up to 8 brass, without losing the feel and flavor of the original. The reeds are scored for solo clarinet, 2 altos and 2 tenors, with all 4 saxes doubling clarinets for the final chorus. Benny's solo has been written out in full, although your player can improvise from the chords provided instead. All dynamics and articulations are here too, to enable your band to reproduce the authentic Goodman sound. A super chart for the swing dance crowd. Swing @ 185 b.p.m.
