I Won't Dance by Frank Sinatra With Count Basie. Arranged by Neal Hefti. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-9002). Jazz Lines Publications presents this classic Neal Hefti big band arrangement from the 1962 Frank Sinatra and Count Basie collaboration 'Sinatra-Basie.' This is vintage Neal Hefti: mellow, but swinging lines and enough space to afford the vocalist some freedom of interpretation. The chart really 'breathes' well. The arrangement calls for alto 1 to double flute (Frank Wess was the flutist on the record). An alternate alto 1 part is included that avoids the flute double in the event that you don't have a flutist available. The chart features a couple of short tenor sax solos, which have been written out. From the All Music Guide review of the album: "The record was criticized by some as a letdown when it came out, probably because Neal Hefti's charts rarely permit the band to roar, concentrating on use of subtlety and space. Yet the record's restraint has worn very well over the long haul it doesn't beat you into submission and it concludes with its best shot, a wonderfully playful treatment of 'I Won't Dance.'" Ranges: Trumpet 1: to high C# Trombone 1: to high G# Vocal Key: C modulating to Db.

How About You? by Frank Sinatra. Arranged by Nelson Riddle; Walt Stuart. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-9003). Late in 1955 and early in 1956 Frank Sinatra went into the Capitol Studio with Nelson Riddle and recorded one of the best and most famous albums of all-time: 'Songs for Swingin' Lovers.' We are very proud to offer the closing track of that disc, which swings as heartily as the rest of the cuts on the record, which might be the very best album from the strongest period of Frank's long career. This chart brings one of Sinatra's very best and timeless recordings sparkling to life. This classic version of 'How About You' is a particularly famous arrangement crafted by the brilliant arranger Nelson Riddle. This chart is instantly recognizable from the first few notes and swings like mad. This has been adapted to suit a big band lineup of 5 saxes, 4 trumpets, 4 trombones, guitar, piano, bass, drums, and vocals. Please note that the mp3 sample has an anti-piracy tone every 30 seconds.

Who Cares by Helen O'Connell. Arranged by Marion Evans. For big band with female vocal. Fast Swing. Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-9004). This is a tremendous chart from master arranger Marion Evans, recorded by Helen O'Connell for her 'Here's Helen' album. This is not a transcription, the original handwritten manuscript was used to produce this arrangement. This arrangement moves at brisk pace of approx. 240 b.p.m (quarter note) and features a lot of beautifully crafted, syncopated unison lines. The drummer can really shine on this chart as crisp accents can help carry the band during the shout sections. The trombones open on plungers. There is a brief interlude that originally featured someone in the band calling out "Just one more once, baby!" We have included this part as a 'band yell' as it is a nice break in the action and can provide a bit of humor. There are no doubles. Trumpet 1 goes to a high E once but doesn't get higher than C# otherwise. Vocal Key: F modulating to Gb. Ranges: Trumpet 1: to high E Trombone 1: to high C Vocal Key: F modulating to Gb.

The string parts have been scored into the band (mostly in the sax section). The ranges are modest. The chart features some nice harmon muted trumpet as solo and backing vocals. These solos have been fully written out for trumpet 2 as well as the chord changes should your player want to improvise something comparable. The vocal key is D throughout.

It was, however, performed live on the radio on July 15, 1970 (radio broadcast from the Rainbow Grill in New York City). This is not a transcription, the original manuscript was used. The chart begins with a great swinging figure in the Basie tradition. Alto 1 doubles on clarinet. The vocal key starts in A flat then modulates to B flat and ends up in B. Ranges: Vocal Key: A flat to B flat to B Trumpet 1: High C Trombone 1: High G.

Don't Worry 'Bout Me by Frank Sinatra With Count Basie. Arranged by Quincy Jones, Syd Potter. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-9011). Here is another classic Sinatra arrangement, this one from the pen of Quincy Jones. In 1966 Frank Sinatra collaborated with the Count Basie Orchestra to produce a series of shows at the Sands Hotel. 'Sinatra Live at the Sands' was the now-famous recording that was made. Quincy Jones did most of the arrangements with some help from Billy Byers. This arrangement of the Rube Bloom classic tune moves along at approximately 69 bpm - a very laid back swing feel. Towards the end there is a great band shout section - and they really shout and build to a climax before dropping back down for Frank's entrance. The end of the arrangement will require some conducting as there are multiple fermatas. The vocal key is E flat throughout and there are no doubles. Ranges: Trumpet 1: High C Trombone 1: High A Vocal Key: E Flat.

Summer Wind by Frank Sinatra. Arranged by Nelson Riddle, Syd Potter. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Medium Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-9017). Well, here is another classic, instantly recognizable Frank Sinatra arrangement. This chart comes from the 1996 'Strangers in the Night' record, which, despite the success of the record, proved to be last collaboration between Sinatra and Riddle. An organ is featured on the recording, but a piano will work just fine. If you have access to an organ, all the better. In addition, the ending is scored for alto 1 and tenor 1 to double on flutes. But, we have included alternate parts in the event that you don't have access to flutes. This is a very straight-forward chart with no big suprises. The trick is to get that laid-back, basie-style, swing feel. The tempo is approximately 92 bpm. The ranges are very comfortable, but the vocals go through several modulations: D flat to E flat to F. This is just another great, must-have Sinatra chart that your audience will love! Ranges: Trumpet 1: to high B Trombone 1: to high A Vocal Keys: D flat modulating to E flat modulating to F.

I Cried For You by Helen O'Connell. Arranged by Marion Evans. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-9020). Here is Helen O'Connell's original arrangement of 'I Cried for You' from her 1962 'Here's Helen' album. This is not a transcription, the original Marion Evans manuscript has been used. This is just a great chart beginning with a bouncy swing figure in the reeds and drums on brushes. The trumpets come in with a nice syncopated melody behind the vocals with Harmon mutes on. In the middle there is a brass soli followed by a reed soli that leads to an 8-bar trombone solo (trombone 2). The solo has not been written out, but guide notes (per the original manuscript) and chord changes have been supplied. Your piano player gets to play a little bit by supplying fills behind the vocals per the original recording. The ranges for the trumpets are modest; trumpet 1 gets to high D towards the end of arrangement and trombone 1 goes to high B flat. There are no doubles. The vocal key is B flat modulating to B for the last 12 bars. Vocal Key: B flat modulating to B.

The Best Is Yet To Come by Frank Sinatra. Arranged by Quincy Jones, Walt Stuart. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-9031). This classic Sinatra arrangement from the pen of Quincy Jones comes from 'It Might As Well Be Swing' album, recorded in 1964 with the Count Basie Orchestra. This song, along with Luck Be a Lady; My Kind of Town; New York, New York; and a few others helped cement Sinatra's unique, memorable, and often imitated style and image. This is a very laid back, swinging arrangement (a la Count Basie) that allows the singer to shine. Trumpet 1 gets to a high E, trumpet 2 to a high C and trombone 1 gets to a high C flat. As a result of those high notes, we have marked this arrangement as difficult. Please note that the mp3 sample has an anti-piracy tone every 30 seconds. Ranges: Trumpet 1: E above staff. Trumpet 2: C above staff. Trombone 1: C flat above staff. Trombone 2: B flat above staff.

There are no sax doubles. Ranges: Trumpet 1: to high A Trombone 1: to high Bb Vocal Key: Bb minor.

Blue Moon by Frank Sinatra. Arranged by Nelson Riddle. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-9035). This swinging Nelson Riddle arrangement comes from Frank Sinatra's 'Swingin' Session and More' record. In typical Riddle fashion, the chart begins with a memorable introduction and then the vocals enter with great rhythmic figures in the sax section and a familiar baritone sax line. Then the brass enter for the second A section and the chart really gets going. There is a tenor saxophone solo (over the first two A sections) that has been written out in full. The chord changes have been included as well in the event that your player wants to improvise instead. There are no saxophone doubles. The ranges, however, do need to be mentioned: trumpet 1 goes to high E and trombone 1 gets into the extended range and goes up to high D flat on 5 occasions. So, the arrangement has been marked as difficult dues to the high ranges of the brass. The vocal key is D flat throughout. Ranges: Trumpet 1: to high E Trombone 1: to high D flat (extended range) Vocal Key: D flat.

Night And Day by Frank Sinatra. Arranged by Nelson Riddle, Walt Stuart. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-9039). In the 1950s Frank Sinatra, along with master arranger Nelson Riddle, recorded a series of hit records for Capitol that arguably captured Ole Blue Eyes at his very best. This arrangement of Night and Day comes from 'A Swingin' Affair', released in 1957. This is an absolute standout treatment of this classic tune. Much like the entire record, this cut is forceful, brassy, and joyous, as Frank leads a standout orchestra playing another of Mr. Riddle's masterpiece interpretations. This chart helps bring to life one of the signature tunes from the strongest period of Sinatra's illustrious career-it was a song that Frank loved and this arrangement brought the song and the singer together in a timeless and magisterial way. The chart begins with a punchy, brass-led sequence that will immediately grab the listeners. The vocals come in with just baritone sax and rhythm section featuring a riff borrowed from the earlier recording of 'I've Got You Under My Skin.' All saxes then go to clarinets (alternate parts have been included that avoid doubles) while trumpets go to harmon mutes. The string parts have been scored into the clarinets. There is a cameo trombone solo in the middle of arrangement that has been fully written out. The vocal key begins in D and modulates to E flat. The hard part of this arrangement is achieving that great punchy sound that Riddle was a master at creating. Ranges: Trumpet 1: to high F Trombone 1: to high B flat Vocal Key: D modulating to E flat.

Goody Goody by Frank Sinatra. Arranged by Neal Hefti. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-9042). With its bouncy melody and surprisingly sarcastic lyrics, this 1936 tune represents some of the best of jazzy American pop. Due to its catchy melodic hook, this song has remained a jazz standard and has been interpreted in many different styles, including big band, Dixieland, pop vocal, doo wop, and rock. For Frank Sinatra's 1962 album 'Sinatra and Swingin' Brass' Neal Hefti put together a steamrolling, brisk rendition to play off the song's melodic structure. This arrangement works so well against the melody beginning with a repeated rock-type melodic figure in the reeds. From the first measure you know you're in for a ride. This chart is not technically difficult and the ranges are moderate. Trumpet 1 goes to an optional high F otherwise the part only goes to high C. Trombone 1 goes to high A flat. There are no doubles. The vocal key is A flat.

Mele Kalikimaka by Bing Crosby And The Andrews Sisters. Arranged by Vic Schoen, Jonathan Lorentz. For big band with male vocal and female vocal trio [SSA]. Swing. Medium Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-9044). Anyone who's seen the Chevy Chase holiday classic movie 'Christmas Vacation' (which is a lot of people) knows this song and the scene that it comes from. Clark W. Griswold is gazing out the kitchen window dreaming of the swimming pool that he wants to install and this song is playing in the background. Mele Kalikimaka was written in 1946 by R. Alex Anderson and became a major hit for the unbeatable combination of Bing Crosby and the Andrews Sisters in 1949. It was originally featured on a Crosby record simply titled 'Merry Christmas' released on Decca. This is not a technically demanding chart for the band. However, your singers need to be able to pull off this WWII-era vocal trio style, which sounds easier than it is. Plus, there is a male vocal part that needs to seamlessly blend in as well. The well-known Hawaiian slide guitar introduction has been scored into the ensemble as very few bands would have access to this instrument (or something that could approximate the sound). The ranges are very moderate with trumpet 1 only getting up to a high A. Trombone 1 gets to a high B flat. The vocal key starts in D for Bing and then modulates to E flat for the Andrews Sisters' entrance. There are no saxophone doubles. The vocal trio part is written up an octave for ease of sight reading. Vocal Key: D modulating to E flat.

And The Angels Sing by Benny Goodman. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Medium/Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2004). Another classic from the Benny Goodman Orchestra, written by trumpeter Ziggy Elman. In the original arrangement the vocal chorus led to a typical Goodman 'Yiddish' trumpet chorus. In our arrangement this is replaced by a more conventional trumpet solo chorus and 'middle 8', with the vocal returning to close the chorus. The ending is as per the original, with a trumpet solo feature leading the band to a rousing finale. The vocal range is A below to Bb above middle C.

Orange Colored Sky by Natalie Cole. Arranged by Jon Harpin. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2005). Orange Coloured Sky was covered well by Natalie Cole several years back, and our version sticks to the structure of this version, though in the key of F, making it more singer-friendly. It opens with an 8 bar band intro followed by the vocal chorus, with all of the expected powerful band hits behind the "Flash, Bam, Alakazam" vocal. A band interlude follows the chorus, with the vocalist returning for the middle 8 and final vocal half chorus. Jon Harpin has done a masterly job of arranging so that the band fully supports the vocalist, without overpowering at any time. His choice of harmony and instrumental voicing gives this chart a refreshing contemporary kick. Thearrangement is so new we do not yet have a recording to offer you, but rest assured that you can be confident that this chart oozes quality and is worthy of a place in any library. No sax doubles. Trumpets 1-4 D6, B5, B5, G5 Trombones 1-4 A4, F4, E4, C4 Vocal Key: F (Female Vocal F3-C5).

Clementine is simply great fun. This Bobby Darin version is in a similar style to his more well known Mack the Knife, with successive half-step modulations, and a band backing that builds and builds to a huge finish. We have accurately notated Bobby's vocal line and phrasing, and written the rhythm parts as-played, where they are most important to the feel of the chart. No sax doubles. Trumpets 1-4 C6 (F6 opt), Ab5 (C6 opt), G5 (Ab5 opt), F5 Trombones 1-4 Bb4, F4, Eb4, C4 Vocals Male Eb3 - F4 - Vocal key Eb to Ab.
