Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen by Benny Goodman With Martha Tilton. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Medium Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2007). The Goodman orchestra performed a similar version of this chart at the Carnegie Hall concert, with Martha Tilton the featured vocalist. This is an easy but effective arrangement, opening after a short intro, with the band taking the first chorus (a sax soli middle 8) into a key change for the vocal chorus. The pick-up is a wailing clarinet (or Soprano) solo, with the vocal coming back before a tutti last shout. A great swing vehicle for your vocalist. The range is A below, to B above middle C. The vocal key is E minor then A minor. Lead alto doubles clarinet.

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.

Here Comes Santa Claus/Santa Claus Is Coming To Town by Linda Eder. Arranged by Alan Glasscock. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Advanced. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2011). Wow. This is a tough, storming swing chart from the talented Linda Eder, and is not just for Christmas. The arrangement is a two-tune medley of Here Comes Santa Claus and Santa Claus is Coming to Town, and swings for all of its five minutes. The opening is memorable, there is a solo spot for lead Alto, a surprise change of feel in the middle taken from Sing Sing Sing and Oh Tannenbaum which leads into the second half of the medley. This is a huge chart and not for the faint hearted. If your band can pull it off it will be a showstopper. Both Altos double Flutes, both Tenors double Clarinets and the Baritone doubles Bass Clarinet, though we have also cued this passage with notes for the Bari in case a Bass Clarinet is unavailable. This transcription has been a labour of love for Alan Glasscock and he has done it with aplomb. Vocal keys: Db/Bb/C Swing @ 170 b.p.m. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: G6, C6, A5, G5 Trombones 1-4: Bb4, Ab4, Eb4, C4 Female Vocal: Ab3 - E5.

Zing! Went The Strings Of My Heart by Frank Sinatra. Arranged by Johnny Mandel, Jon Harpin. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2012). Zing Went the Strings of My Heart was recorded by Frank Sinatra in December 1960 for the Ring-a-Ding album, but remained unreleased until 1990 when the master tapes of the original recording were rediscovered. This chart is a Sinatra gem, and even includes the rarely-heard opening verse. Beautifully transcribed and adapted by Jon Harpin from the original Johhny Mandel arrangement, to incorporate the strings back into a regular big band line-up, this chart is unique and deserves a place in everyones library. Lead Alto doubles Clarinet briefly. Swing @ 112 & 172 b.p.m. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: Eb6, D6, Bb5, F5 Trombones 1-4: Bb4, Ab4, F4, Db4 Vocal key: Db [Male Vocal] Bb2 - Eb4 (10 steps).

I've Got You Under My Skin by Frank Sinatra With The Count Basie Orchestra. Arranged by Quincy Jones, Myles Collins. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2014). Under My Skin is classic Frank Sinatra. This chart is a transcription of Sinatra with the Count Basie Band, taken from Sinatra at the Sands, and is a must for all male vocalists. Everything has been included, from the rumbling Baritone sax line, the big Trombone build after the first vocal chorus ("Run for cover, run and hide!"), the wailing Trombone solo and even the little Piano fills and tinkles. We have re-scored the Saxes to a regular AATTB section and have removed the Clarinet & Bass Clarinet doubles from the original, as we recognise that not all bands have a Bass Clarinet to hand. All dynamics are clearly written, and the vocal part replicates Sinatra's performance. The brass ranges are moderate other than the Trombone solo which is up to hight Db, though your player can always improvise on the chords provided. A fine addition to any library. Key of D flat. Swing @ 130b.p.m. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: C6, Ab5, F5, Eb5 Trombones 1-4: Db5, G4, Eb4, C4 Vocals: Male Vocal Ab2 - F4 (12 steps).

Santa Baby by Eartha Kitt. Arranged by Alan Glasscock. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2015). A cheeky and fun vocal number, originally by Eartha Kitt, though later covered by Madonna. Our arrangement draws inspiration from both, without losing any of the essence. Whilst predominantly used as a Christmas song, this chart is good in any set, any time of the year! There are some Sax doubles. Altos 1& 2 and the Baritone are on Clarinets throughout, with both Tenors staying on Tenor. We realise that Bari players are not famous for Clarinet skills, so we have included an extra Sax 4 part (turning the Bari into the 2nd Tenor part) so that one of your Tenor players can take the Clarinet part instead. Swing @ 100 b.p.m. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4 Bb5, G5, Eb5, C5 Trombones: 1-4 Bb4, Eb4, Eb4, Db4 Vocals: Female Ab3 - Ab4.

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.

Just A Little Bit South Of North Carolina by Gene Krupa And Anita O'Day. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Medium Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2021). A bouncy vocal from Anita O'Day and the Gene Krupa band, with an unreasonably long title! This chart was one of the most requested of O'Day's repertoire, and we have faithfully recreated it for you here, complete with the opening Guitar solo (cued onto the piano part) and Roy Eldridge's cameo Trumpet solos and the little Clarinet solo (on 1st Alto) near the end. The ranges are very moderate and the chart is not over complicated. All dynamics and articulatoins are clearly marked, enabling your band to perform the arrangement with confidence. A good chart for concert work or dancing. Swing @ 150 b.p.m. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: C#6, Bb5, G5, E5 Trombones 1-4: A4, G4, E4, C4 Vocals (key of C): Female A3 - B4.

Come Fly With Me by Frank Sinatra With Count Basie. Arranged by Quincy Jones, Jon Harpin. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2023). This is Frank Sinatra at his best. This chart is a transcription of Sinatra with the Count Basie Band, taken from Sinatra at the Sands. It features the original band into - big, punchy and nearly a minute long - giving you time for a big introduction to your vocalist. The chart is also marked with an optional start point, just before the vocal, should you wish to shorten things. We have removed a couple of muted trumpet fills here and there, to keep things cleaner. There are some sax doubles. Altos go to Clarinets and Tenors to Flutes. These doubles add colour to the voicings though are not vital to the chart. So if your Tenor players are fluteless don't worry too much. The vocal is in Bb, with a range from Bb to D (one octave and 3 tones) and has been written out to give your vocalist a good feel of Sinatra's phrasing. All in all this chart is exceptional. Trumpets 1-4 G6, E6, C6, Ab5 Trombones 1-4 Bb4, G4, F4, Db4 Vocal Baritone Bb2 to D4 (one octave and 3 tones).

Luck Be A Lady by Frank Sinatra. Arranged by Billy May, Jon Harpin. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Medium Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2025). Adapted from the original Billy May arrangement of Sinatra's Reprise recording, Luck Be A Lady kicks off with the slow, almost Colla Voce intro, which picks up into a thumping swing chart. Jon Harpin has done a remarkable job in transcribing this Sinatra classic. Everything is here - dynamics, articulations, phrasing, modulations, the works. Strings were used in the original recording, which we have re-scored into the band, to make the chart suitable for a 5,4,4,4 line-up. At 5 minutes 15 seconds this is a long chart, and makes for a great vocal feature. Lead Alto doubles Clarinet. A must for all Sinatra fans. Trumpets 1-4: E6, C6, Bb5, Bb5 Trombones 1-4: B4, A4, F4, C#4 Vocal Keys: Db/D/Eb Male Vocal: Db3 - F4.

That's Life by Frank Sinatra. Arranged by Jon Harpin. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Medium Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2026). Another great tune from Frank Sinatra's Reprise days. The original version of this chart featured female backing vocals and a Leslie-style organ. We appreciate that this limits the playability of such an arrangement, so Jon Harpin has creatively transcribed and re-scored for a standard big band line-up. The B.V.'s are shared between a quartet of 2 Saxes, Trumpet & Trombone, and the opening Organ solo has also been scored into the Sax parts should your Pianist not have the appropriate bag of tricks to make a nice Organ noise. There are no Sax doubles and the brass ranges are moderate to low. We have graded this as an Medium Easy piece, but boy, it's a real crowd pleaser! Swing (12:8 feel) @ 76 b.p.m. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: C6, C6, F5, E5 Trombones 1-4: Ab4, Gb4, D4, C4 Male Vocal: Eb3 - F4.

Night And Day by Ella Fitzgerald. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2030). A classic Cole Porter song from 1932, Night and Day was a 'must-have' number for the great Big Bands of the era. Our version is based on that used by Ella Fitzgerald, and is a good example how to score the band to best support the vocalist. The arrangement includes the vocal verse, backed by a solo tom-tom, leading into the tutti chorus. A very easy to play chart, and very effective in performance. Please note that the vocal key of this chart is A flat.

I've Got My Love To Keep Me Warm by Ella Fitzgerald. Arranged by Alan Glasscock. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2031). A classic from Ella Fitzgerald, this chart is a faithful transcription of her version, and is nothing at all like the Les Brown / Skippy Martin instrumental version. We have even written out Ella's vocal line so your singer can reproduce the timing and phrasing if she wants. This chart is also a Trumpet feature, and the original solo is fully notated on the 2nd part. There are no sax doubles. The transcription by Alan Glasscock. Trumpets 1-4 E6, C6, A5, E5 Trombones 1-4 Bb4, G4, E4, Db4 Vocal Key: B flat; Range: Female F3 - Eb5.

A Tisket, A Tasket by Ella Fitzgerald. Arranged by Klaus Lessmann. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2032). A Tisket A Tasket was a hit for Ella Fitzgerald during her time with the Chick Webb band, and remains one of her most memorable charts. Klaus Lessmann has produced a classy transcription of this chart and had adapted it for a full band line-up. Everything is here, including the band answer-back vocals. Both the sax and the brass sections get to have a go! All articulations are clearly marked and the vocal sheet is as per Ella's performance. Key of A flat. Swing @ 165 b.p.m. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: D6, Bb5, G5, Eb5 Trombones 1-4: Ab4, F4, Eb4, C4 Female Vocal: Ab3-Eb5 (12 steps).

Opus 1 (One) by Gene Krupa With Anita O'Day. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2034). A classic from the pen of Sy Oliver, this is the vocal version that Anita O'Day recorded with Gene Krupa, and is a mix of powerhouse swing that you would expect from Krupa's band, and a laid-back, slightly humourous vocal chorus from O'Day. It features a blasting Trumpet solo near the end, and a wonderfully conceived modulation into the vocal chorus. We have written out the Trumpet solo, and the little Piano fill-in solo in the intro too. This is a medium to advanced chart in terms of difficulty, because the Trumpet solo screams up to a high E, and 1st and 2nd Trombones have to pick a top D out of the air at one point. Other than that, it is pretty straight ahead, and there are no sax doubles. Trumpets 1-4: D6, E6, B5, B5 Trombones 1-4: D5, D5, A4, Ab4 Vocal key D (Female A3 - B4).

Route 66 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-2038). Mention the words Route 66 and many people think 'Johnny B-Goode', Rock and Roll, guitar bands etc. Well, think again. Our version is written as a bouncy, but not fast, swing-shuffle that has a laid-back yet driving feel to it. We've included solo space for Tenor, Trumpet and Baritone, all backed by brass riffs that build as the solos progress. Fun and straightforward to play and good to dance to. The vocal range is Bb below middle C to D one octave above middle C. Vocal key is Eb to F. Swing 140 b.p.m. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: B5, G5, E5, E5 Trombones 1-4: G4, E4, D4.

Sentimental Journey by Doris Day With Les Brown. Arranged by Bob Martin. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2039). Co-written by Les Brown for his own Orchestra, Sentimental Journey was a great hit for Doris Day, and this version remains as the definative standard for the tune. It has to be played bluesy, laid back, softly and not too fast! The brass lines at the end of the first chorus emphasise the 'drag' and the tenor solo behind the vocal re-enforces the lazy feel. Vocally in the key of A, the range is from A below, to B above middle C. Lead alto doubles clarinet. The mp3 is courtesy of The Strayhorns, with vocalist Nou Nou, taken from a live gig. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: B5, G5, E5, D5 Trombones 1-4: G#4, F4, D4, B3 Vocal key A (A3 - B4).

Straighten Up And Fly Right by Nat King Cole And Natalie Cole. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2049). One of the many great songs written by Nat 'King' Cole, it has found its place as a stock tune in the repertoire of many female singers, including Linda Rondstat and Natalie Cole. This version borrows a little from the style of each. A short intro followed by the first vocal chorus, discreetly backed by the band, leads to a Nat style piano solo. The sax soli re-introduces the second vocal chorus. A muted trumpet solo continues the very laid-back feel, and the whole thing is rounded off by the vocalist. The vocal range is Middle C to C above middle C. Vocal key is F. The mp3 is courtesy of the Blue Moon Big Band. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4 B5,G5,E5,E5 Trombones 1-4 G4, F4, C4, C4 Vocal C4 - C5.

Stuff Like That There by Bette Midler. Arranged by Billy May, Myles Collins. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2051). Adapted from the original Billy May arrangement used in the Bette Midler film 'For The Boys' where she is performing in front of a hanger full of USAAF personnel during an air raid. Stuff Like That There is an up, bouncy vocal chart that really moves along. The short intro and lovely vocal and piano Colla Voce duet gives no clue to what is to come, until the vocalist picks up the tempo into the main swing boogie part of the chart. The secret to success with this number is to play it with a really relaxed feel, and it will really swing. The sound file here for you to download is the whole arrangement which we hope will be of great help to vocalists, to hear the feel and tempo changes. Vocal key: Ab/F Range: A3 - C5.

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).

Till You Come Back To Me by Linda Eder. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2071). Originally written in 1994 for Linda Eder by Frank Wildhorn, this song is a great swinger. Starting with just vocal and rhythm section it builds and builds as more instruments are overlaid behind the vocal. Lead Alto is featured heavily, both with a 32 bar solo, and with solo fill in phrases to accompany the vocalist in the second half of the song. This tune is a good set opener and really deserves to become a standard repetoire chart. Trumpets are written high in a couple of bars, but can be played down an octave without spoiling the tune, making the ranges playable by all. Swing @ 185-190 b.p.m. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4 F#6, D6, B5, G5 Trombones 1-4 A4, F4, D4, C4 Vocal A3-Bb4.

On The Sunny Side Of The Street by Tommy Dorsey. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Medium Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2073). Made famous by the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, our version of Sunny Side of theStreet is taken from the version done by the late great Syd Lawrence. 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. This chart is scored for a vocal quartet of either 2 female and 2 male voices, though works well with 1 girl and 3 boys. 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. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: C#6, C#6, Ab5, Gb5 Trombones 1-4: B4, E4, Eb4, C4 Vocal Key: Eb SATB C4, Ab3, Ab3, Eb3.

Baby, It's Cold Outside by Margaret Whiting And Johnny Mercer. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with male/female vocal duet. Swing. Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2075). Ours is the great Johnny Mercer & Margaret Whiting version of this classic vocal duet. He want's her to stay, she want's to play hard to get. The chart itself relies on the interplay and chemistry between your two vocalists. The band backings are easy and add just the right amount of punch when needed. In this arrangement the Saxes are all written to play Clarinets, but recognising that not all sax players double Clarinets we have double-sided all of the sax parts, so that one side is as written and the reverse side is scored for a regular sax section.This way you will have more flexibility. The brass ranges are moderate and the chart is very playable and makes a great vocal feature. Trumpets 1-4 C6, G5, F5, F5 Trombones 1-4 Ab4, F4, Eb4, Eb4 Vocals Female Ab3 - Bb4, Male Ab2 - Eb4.

That's My Style is the late, great Peggy Lee at her laid back best. This tune is so relaxed it is almost horizontal, yet the band's support of the vocalist is just perfect. Loud and snappy where it needs to be, yet in places as laconic as the vocal itself. The tempo is moderate and the brass ranges not overly demanding, though the band needs to be tight to do the chart justice. No sax doubles. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4 Db6, Bb5, B5, G5 Trombones 1-4 A4, F4, D4, C4 Vocals Female G3 - A4.
