Almost Like Being In Love by Lerner and Loewe and Lerner & Loewe. Arranged by Lennie Niehaus. Jazz Ensemble / Jazz Band. The Stan Kenton Orchestra Library Series. Swing. Score and set of parts. Published by Sierra Music (S1.SMP-578). As recorded by the Stan Kenton Orchestra on "Adventures In Standards", this is a medium, swing chart on a great tune. Lennie uses a very clever countermelody throughout the arrangement. There is solo space for Tenor Sax and terrific ensemble writing in the Kenton tradition. 5-5-5-3 (can be played with 8 brass).

Works by Bill Holman. Arranged by Bill Holman. Jazz Ensemble / Jazz Band. The Stan Kenton Orchestra Library Series. Swing. Grade 4-5. Score and set of parts. Published by Sierra Music (S1.SMP-564). Here is a terrific medium swing chart, also written for Stan Kenton in the 50s. Although it was never recorded commercially by the band, it was played a great deal in live performances throughout the country and is on a number of "transcription" recordings. It "cooks" from beginning to end, and features solo space for trumpet and tenor sax, and one of those "patented" Holman ensemble shout choruses that just swings like crazy! 5-5-5-3.

Little Brown Jug by Glenn Miller. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1074). Little Brown Jug was an early classic for the Miller band, first recorded in 1939, with the original arrangement done by Bill Finegan. This is an accurate transcription of that version, complete with fully written out Tenor, Trumpet and Trombone solos. Many bands have a stock version of this chart in their libraries. The problem with it is that the solo's aren't scored, the trombone solo is missing entirely, and there are numerous other errors, such as incorrect voicings in the bridge, lack of backing behind the second half of the tenor solo and so on. If you wish to recreate the authentic sound of the Miller band, then this is the version for you. Baritone is on Alto throughout. It is the Sax voicing of AAATT that is the key to getting the right sound. The trumpet and Trombone solos are cross-cued onto the 1st and 2nd parts respectively. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: Bb5,Bb5, Bb5, Bb5 Trombones 1-4: Bb4,Ab4,Ab4,Bb3.

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.

Traffic Jam by Artie Shaw. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1146). Artie Shaw had many great swing charts to his name, but few were as punchy and as powerful as Traffic Jam. It fairly rips along at a quick 240 beats a minute, yet it never sounds forced or rushed. We have transcribed the original, including all the solos (Drums, Clarinet, Tenor, Trombone & Piano), and expanded the chart to a full 8 brass. The Saxes are scored for Clarinet, 2 Altos and 2 Tenors. The chart kicks off with a 4 bar Drum solo leading into a rising chromatic dimished passage, then the main chorus with the Clarinet flying over the top of the band. A quick Tenor solo follows, then back to the band blasting away. There is then a wonderful bell-tone bridge leading to alternating Clarinet and Trombone solos over just Bass and Kit, more band choruses, a Piano solo and a couple of huge shout choruses to end. We have rated the chart as Medium. The band parts are not hard, despite the speed of the chart. It's only Mr. Shaw's bits that need nimble fingers, though your Clarinet player can always improvise over the chords instead. This is a real beauty of a chart, and a must-have in any book. Swing @ 240 - 250 b.p.m. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: C6, C6, F5, F5 Trombones 1-4: C5, Eb4, Eb4, Eb4.

Goodbye by Benny Goodman. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band. Swing. Medium Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1185). Goodbye was Benny Goodman's closing theme. A slow, hauntingly beautiful composition from Gordon Jenkins, rich in musical colour and tonality and a fine testament to Benny. We have faithfully reproduced the original here, though have expanded the brass to a full 4/4 section to suit a standard big band line-up. The chart features Clarinet and 2nd Trumpet, with some cameo spots for Baritone & Guitar and plenty of flowing Piano runs. The reeds are scored for Clarinet, Alto, 2 Tenors and Baritone. Not a difficult chart to play, but plenty of dynamic discipline is required to make it sound right. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: A5, E5, Db5, Bb4 Trombones 1-4: Bb4, G4, B3, Bb3.

Life Goes To A Party by Benny Goodman. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band. Swing. Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-1192). Co-written by Benny Goodman & Harry James, Life Goes to a Party is a pulsating, energetic and quick minor swing chart. The Goodman band recorded this tune on several occasions, the first in 1937, then again in 1938. We have transcribed from the '37 chart, and have made a couple of small modifications. The brass has been augmented to 8 voices and the tempo indication has been slowed to 240 (from 280) to match the tempo of the '38 chart. The solos are written out in full (Clarinet, Trumpet, Tenor and Piano) and the Saxes are scored for CAATT. This chart is an absolute gem. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: D6, D6, G5, E5 Trombones 1-4: Ab4, F4, Eb4, B3.

Chattanooga Choo Choo by Glenn Miller. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with vocal quartet. Swing. Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2009). Here is Glenn Miller's Chattanooga Choo Choo in all its glory. This is the extended version from the film Sun Valley Serenade scored for Boy & Girl vocal with 4-piece backing group and it is four and a half minutes long! This version is a significant development from Miller's first version. In transcribing this chart the audio soundtrack from the film and the film itself were used in order to be able to see what the band were actually doing and playing. There are parts of the audio recording in which the band "disappears", particularly the trombones behind the vocal chorus and the saxes behind the brass in the final shout chorus. By studying the players' fingering and slide movements on the film we have recreated what we think is the most authentic version of this chart you'll ever find. It has been a labour of love. The chart is also singable by a Boy / Girl combination without the backing group - an extra vocal part has been included to cover this eventuality. Regarding Sax doubles, Alto 2 & Tenor 1 double Clarinets, Baritone doubles Alto. An instrumental only version is also available - see our Instrumental Glenn Miller section. Vocal key C.

Jingle Bells by The Andrews Sisters. Arranged by Alan Glasscock. For big band with male vocal and female vocal trio [SSA]. Swing. Medium Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2016). Here's a bit of Christmas cheer, courtesy of Bing Crosby and the inimitable Andrews Sisters. This chart is just happy and fun from start to finish. Written for a male vocal and female vocal trio, it is equaly well suited to a male / female duo. Full of quirky little fills and backings from the band which compliment rather than outshine the vocalists, plus a cameo Baritone sax solo, this chart is perfect for injecting a little festive cheer. Both Altos are on Clarinets, the brass ranges are very moderate (lead Trumpet only up to an A) and the vocal ranges are not challenging. The only tricky little bit is the Piano intro, so all eyes on him!Swing @ 200 b.p.m. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: A5 F5, D5, D5 Trombones 1-4: Ab4, F4, Eb4, C4 Male vocal: Ab up to Eb, 12 steps Vocal Trio 1, 2 & 3: 1) C4-C5. 2) C4-C5. 3)Ab3-G4.

The Lady Is A Tramp by Frank Sinatra. Arranged by Billy Byers, Jon Harpin. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2122). This chart is a transcription of the Billy Byers chart as performed by Frank Sinatra backed by Woody Herman at Madison Square Garden in 1974. The opening is thunderingly brassy and establishes a great contrast to the quiet start of the vocal. The first vocal chorus is backed mainly by Saxes and Trombone licks, but builds in intensity to the half-step modulation. From here the arrangement powers its way to the finish line, and swings like crazy all the way. The vocal keys are Bb and B. This is timeless and classic Sinatra. Trumpets 1-4: D6, C6, A5, Ab5 Trombones 1-4: C5, G#4, F#4, D4 Vocal Key: Bb, B Male Vocal Bb2 - F#4 (12 steps).

It Could Happen To You by Helen O'Connell. Arranged by Frankie Ortega, Myles Collins. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2179). Here is another original Helen O'Connell chart as played by her on her many concert tours. The tune was written by Johnny Burke & Jimmy van Heusen for the Paramount film "And the Angels Sing". This arrangement is not a transcription, but a re-score of the original Frankie Ortega chart. To the best of our knowledge this chart was not commercially recorded, hence there is no audio sample. The chart opens colla voce, just voice and piano, joined in tempo (100) by the band for the first chorus. In typical O'Connell style, the chart picks up into swing (180) for the final chorus. The saxes are scored to double clarinets, although alternate parts on the reverse which eliminate the need to double have been provided. The vocal key is C throughout.

Bye, Bye Blackbird by Dean Martin. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Medium Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2190). This is a great Dean Martin number, transcribed from the original recording and augmented up to full big band voicings. The original band was 3 saxes (C/A, A, T), trumpet, trombone and rhythm The chart has been written so that it will sound as per the original when only played with these instruments, giving you a choice of a full or small band performance. The vocal chart is written 'as sung' by Dean Martin, and the trombone solo is transcribed 'as played', though your player can improvise from the chords if preferred. Lead alto doubles clarinet and the vocal keys are Eb (1st chorus) and F (2nd chorus).

I'm Beginning To See The Light by Harry James. Arranged by Alan Glasscock. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LLG-2249). I'm Beginning To See The Light is a popular tune, recorded by most of the great vocalists. This is the Harry James version originally sung by Kitty Kallen. The chart is unusual in that it features a couple of guitar solos (though these solos have been cross cued onto the piano part in case your band doesn't have a guitarist) and the opening and closing choruses are taken by a trumpet, tenor and baritone trio. Being a Harry James chart there is of course a little feature solo for trumpet (written on the second trumpet part). Second alto doubles clarinet, and the vocal key is Db. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4 : C6, A5, Bb5, Bb5 Trombones 1-4 : Bb4, Ab4, Ab4, Db4 Vocal key: Db [Female Vocal G3 - Ab4 (9 steps)].

Temptation by Charlie Parker With Big Band And Strings. Arranged by Joe Lipman. For big band with strings. Beguine/Swing. Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-8042). Here is Joe Lipman's brilliant big band with strings arrangement that he did for Charlie Parker. This was recorded in 1952 and is presented here directly from the original manuscript. This is NOT a transcription. However, everything Parker played on this recording has been transcribed and presented here as-played, though we have also included (in a separate staff) what was originally written for him. So, this arrangement can certainly be played without the need to mimic Bird. This chart was scored for solo alto sax, 2 altos (both double flute and alto 1 doubles picolo), 2 tenors (both double clarinet), baritone sax (doubles English horn - written in F), 3 trumpets, 2 trombones, 4 violins, 2 violas, 2 celli, harp, guitar, piano, bass, and drums. The brass parts have been augmented to 4 trumpets and 4 trombones. In addition, a baritone sax part with a clarinet double has been included in the event that you don't have access to an English horn.

Anything Goes by Frank Sinatra. Arranged by Nelson Riddle. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-9055).

The arrangement opens with the guitar playing a little syncopated figure and alto 1 on flute. Trombones are on cup mutes for the vocal entrance. Unlike other Riddle/Sinatra charts from this period, there isn't any instrumental section in this arrangement - there are vocals throughout. This isn't really that difficult of an arrangement, but just a really great showcase for your male vocalist. Alto 1 doubles on flute. Ranges: Trumpet 1: to B5; Trombone 1: to Bb4; Vocal Key: A flat modulating to A.

My Way by Frank Sinatra. Arranged by Don Costa. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Medium Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2189). Here is the tune that Frank Sinatra called "the national anthem", and it's a chart that is sure to bring the house down. Sinatra's classic version, written by Don Costa, was very orchestral, and it has been adapted here to suit a regular 5444 band line-up without losing the feel of the original, by re-scoring the string lines into the saxes, with the 1st alto doubling flute, and the 2nd alto doubling clarinet. The piano part is also written out in full. The brass ranges are moderate, with 1st & 2nd trumpet to high C#, and 1st trombone to A, with 4th as a Bass. The vocal key is D throughout. This chart is one of those "must have" charts for any library. Ballad @ 80 bppm.
