On The Road To Mandalay (Score) edited by Rob DuBoff and Jeffrey Sultanof. Arranged by Billy Byers. For big band. Recorded by Count Basie. Swing. Medium Difficult. Score. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-8127S). In 1963 Count Basie recorded an album of Billy Byers arrangements titled 'More Hits of the 50s and 60s.' This was later re-issued as a tribute to Frank Sinatra and titled 'Frankly Speaking: Count Basie Plays the Hits of Frank Sinatra.' This song, written in 1907 by Oley Speaks, was based on a poem by Rudyard Kipling and has become a standard party due to the famous recording by Frank Sinatra on the 'Come Fly with Me' album. This arrangement features alto sax, flute (on reed 2) and trumpet playing the first part of the melody. Piano is then featured for the second half of the melody. Byers wrote this chart as a repeat and fade. An optional ending has been created in the event that you wish to perform this with a hard ending. This is a solid, swinging arrangement by the great Billy Byers, edited and engraved directly from his original score. Ranges: Trumpet 1: to F6; Trombone 1: to C5.

Rose Of The Rio Grande (Score) edited by Jeffrey Sultanof and Rob DuBoff. Arranged by Gerry Mulligan. For big band. Recorded by the Claude Thornhill Orchestra. Swing. Medium Difficult. Score. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-8455S). Rose of the Rio Grande was probably written in 1948, but could have been written a little later. Frankly, it is an amazing score, certainly one of the greatest arrangements Mulligan ever wrote, but also reflective of his maturity as a writer. The introduction alone sounds like it was written twenty years later; it is so unique for its time that the rest of the arrangement almost sounds like an anti-climax, except that Mulligan also wrote one of the great out-choruses in big band history for this setting. He knew how good it was, since he reused it for his own composition Swing House written for Stan Kenton in 1952. This arrangement would not be recorded by Thornhill until 1953 for Albert Marx's Trend label. Alto sax 1 doubles on clarinet. The brass instrumentation is: 3 trumpets, 2 horns in F, 2 trombones, and tuba. We have included optional alternate parts for the horns in F and tuba (see below). Ranges: Trumpet 1: to A6; Trombone 1: to Ab4.

Bop Bounce [Aka Harlequin Bounce] by Benny Carter. Arranged by Benny Carter. For big band. Swing, Jazz. Advanced. Score. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-8496S). This brilliant bebop arrangement was written by Benny in 1948 for a broadcast on Armed Forces Radio. The big band featured tenor saxophonist Dexter Gordon. This arrangement is much in the syle of the charts that were recorded by the bebop big bands of Dizzy Gillespie and Billy Eckstine. Sometime after it was recorded Benny changed the title to Harlequin Bounce. It was then recorded in part for a video short, put together with Carter's arrangement of Congero. The reeds are featured playing the melody with the brass providing punching accents. This chart showcases some intricate unison lines in both reeds and brass. These sections will take a considerable amount of work to get it right. If your band can put it together this would make a great festival or concert piece. Solos are for piano, trombone, tenor saxophone, and the solo alto. Ranges: Trumpets 1-3: Eb6; All Trombones: Bb4.

Stratosphere (Score) edited by Jeffrey Sultanof and Rob DuBoff. Arranged by Eddie Wilcox. For big band. Recorded by Jimmie Lunceford. Swing. Difficult. Score. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-8732S). Here is one of the most famous and groundbreaking big band arrangements from the early swing era. Written in 1934 by pianist Eddie Wilcox, this arrangement was a novelty number for the band showcasing the reeds and trumpets. The syncopation will require special attention, especially by trumpets 1 and 2 who play against each other. Alto 1 doubles on clarinet. If you're looking for a fast showcase for your band, this is it! Ranges: Trumpet 1: to C6; Trombones 1 and 2: to Bb4.

The One I Love Belongs To Somebody Else by The Jimmie Lunceford Big Band. Arranged by Tadd Dameron. For big band. Swing, Jazz. Medium Difficult. Score. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-8883S). Tadd Dameron was one of the most influential composer/arrangers in American music. Born in 1917, he wrote for bands led by Jimmie Lunceford, Count Basie, Billy Eckstine (many original compositions later performed by the Dizzy Gillespie Orchestra were originally written for Eckstine), Ted Heath and Tommy Dorsey. He also arranged for Sarah Vaughan, Pearl Bailey and the underrated Kay Penton. Dameron led various groups for live gigs and recordings, and the musicians he played with constituted a who’s who of jazz. At one time or another his ensembles included Fats Navarro, Freddie Webster, Charlie Rouse, Kenny Clarke, Kai Winding, Wardell Gray, J.J. Johnson, Dexter Gordon, Miles Davis, Kenny Dorham, John Coltrane and Clifford Brown. This arrangement of the Isham Jones/Gus Kahn standard was most likely written in 1942 as at that time Tadd Dameron was writing for the Jimmie Lunceford Orchestra. The arrangement was never recorded, but, due to the wear on the parts, it was clearly performed live on numerous occasions. It is not entirely clear as to why the arrangement wasn't recorded, though it is possible that the reason is that it was written during the recording ban. The next time the Lunceford ensemble would be in the studio for a recording date wasn't until February 1944 - almost two years after this arrangement was most likely written. Dameron crafted a swinging, interesting take on the standard. The trombone section states the melody for the first chorus with nice ensemble hits and backgrounds. The arrangement moves through three key centers: G, Eb, and Gb. While there are no lengthy solos (tenor sax has a 4-bar cameo solo), there is a great 1/2 chorus saxophone soli. This arrangement should appeal to medium level groups as the ranges are modest. Ranges: Trumpet 1: to C6; Trombone 1: to Bb4.

My Blue Heaven by The Jimmie Lunceford Orchestra. Edited by Jeffrey Sultanof and Rob DuBoff. Arranged by Sy Oliver. For big band with vocal trio. Swing, Jazz. Medium. Score. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-9283S). Sy Oliver was the chief arranger for the Jimmie Lunceford band from 1934 though 1939. Many of Sy’s compositions and arrangements are classics, which he wrote and copied for the princely sum of $2.50! In December of 1935, the Lunceford organization recorded one of the great hits of the swing era, My Blue Heaven, which had been popular several years earlier. Oliver was a master at taking older songs and reinvigorating them for Lunceford, and later the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra. My Blue Heaven stayed in the Lunceford band book until the band broke up in the early fifties. Sometime in the late 1940s, several Lunceford classics were recopied, no doubt because the original parts were worn out, torn up, or simply marked up and unreadable. This edition of My Blue Heaven derives from these new parts, indicating how the band played this classic years after the original recording. Jeff Sultanof transcribed parts that were missing, as well as changing some things back to the way the band originally played this in 1935. The vocal parts were originally sung by members of the band. 3 separate vocal parts have been provided (lead vocal accompanied by a vocal duet). This is a classic arrangement from the Swing Era.
