Beyond The Sea by Bobby Darin. 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-2119). Bobby Darin had a big hit with this tune, and other singers hae also covered it very successfully, the latest being Robbie Williams on his Swing when your Winning album with a version very similar to Darin's original. We have transcribed the Darin chart here, except that there are no strings in our version. Instead we have given the relevant lines to the saxes, adapting the phrasing to improve the swing. The vocal is as per Bobby Darin's delivery, and we have also included an optional repeat at the end of the chart, to extend the play out, plus have written a definite ending, because the recorded version fades, and fade-outs are not good for live perfomances! The vocal key is F and there are no sax doubles. Apart from the lead trumpet having to reach a written high D# the brass parts are not demanding, and the chart will be a certain crowd pleaser. Trumpets 1-4: D#6, B5, G#5, F#5 Trombones 1-4: A4, F#4, E4, C#4 Vocal key F / Male Vocal C3 - F4 (11 steps).

Indian Love Call by Artie Shaw. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with male or female vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2120). Indian Love Call is a classic vocal number from the Artie Shaw orchestra, featuring everyone in the band on vocals! Though it might sound slightly corny when you listen to the audio, when this chart is performed live it is a real wow. The tune opens with solo clarinet and toms, then the saxes join in and the band accompanies with falsetto shouts. Then into the first Tutti chorus at full speed ahead. The vocal chorus (suitable for Alto female or high Baritone/Tenor male vocalists) is unusual in that it is only vocal & rhythm, with the rest of the band singing the answerbacks to the vocal line. After the vocal the band is back with flat-out swinging riffs and the whole thing rounds off with a screaming Clarinet lip-gliss. The Saxes are scored for solo Clarinet, 2 Altos and 2 Tenors. All the Saxes double Clarinets (mainly unison) and it won't really matter if the Alto 2 (your Bari player) doesn't play any Clarinet parts. We have scored his lines as the lowest voice in the harmonized clarinet passages.

You Make Me Feel So Young by Frank Sinatra. 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-2121). This version of You Make Me Feel So Young is the one performed by Frank Sinatra with the Count Basie Orchestra on the "Sinatra at the Sands" album, later re-issued on the Reprise collection, and it is arguably one of Sinatra's finest numbers. The original Quincy Jones chart has been wonderfully transcribed and adapted (for 8 brass) by Jon Harpin, and includes the muted Trumpet solo written out, and all of the litte licks and fills on the drum part which add so much punch. The vocal keys are G and Ab, and there are no sax doubles. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: F6, C6, C6, F5 Trombones 1-4: Bb4, G4, E4, C#4 Vocal Key: G,Ab - Male B2 - A4 (14 steps).

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).

I've Heard That Song Before by Helen Forrest With Harry James. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2123). Originally written for the film 'Youth on Parade' by the prolific team of Jule Styne & Sammy Cahn, this tune became a huge hit for Helen Forrest and the Harry James Orchestra. HJ recorded the chart in 1942 and 1955. This arrangement is a fusion of these two, mostly drawn drawn the '42, with touches of the '55. HJ's 1st chorus solo is written out in full (on the 1st Trumpet part) and we have scored the string lines behind the vocal chorus back into the Sax section. Helen Forrest's vocal is written out as-sung too, and the vocal key is G. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: D6, C5, C5, B5 Trombones 1-4: Bb4, A4, A4, Eb4 Vocal key: G Female Vocal G# - B5 (9 steps).

That Old Black Magic by Ella Fitzgerald. Arranged by Billy May, Jon Harpin. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2124). Ella Fitzgerald recorded this song many times in her career, and here is her finest version, from the 1960 Billy May collaboration album 'Sings the Harold Arlen Songbook.' This chart is just great all the way through, from the almost Phrygian opening into the relatively reserved first chorus, the blasting band chorus (including the fully written out tenor solo), Ella's more fluid second vocal chorus (also written out in full), the implied repeat to fade and the punch finish. This chart is simply a must have for any big band library. The vocal key is Bb. Trumpets 1-4 C6, B5, B5, B5 Trombones 1-4 A4, A4, A4, F4 Vocal key Bb Female Vocal F3 - Eb5 (13 steps).

Day In, Day Out by Frank Sinatra. Arranged by Billy May, Jon Harpin. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2126). Frank Sinatra's chart of Day In Day Out was originally arranged by the late, great Billy May, and it has been lovingly transcribed for you here by Jon Harpin. This arrangement settles into a swinging groove right from the very first note, and stays there all the way. After the first couple of vocal choruses there is a beautifully conceived 32 measure instrumental passage, full of sectional interplay yet with plenty of space and freedom in the phrasings. The vocal then returns for the last chorus and wraps up the chart. The brass ranges are not that challenging, with lead Trumpet reaching top D and Trombone to Bb. The vocal key is Bb throughout, and there are no Sax doubles. Another fine Sinatra chart for your book.

Jukebox Saturday Night by Glenn Miller. Arranged by Alan Glasscock. For big band with vocal quartet [SATB]. Swing. Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2127). This is a transcription of Glenn Miller's 'Jukebox Saturday Night', scored for big band and a 5 piece vocal group (Girl & 4 Boys). It is as played by Miller, except that the full 10 measure band introduction has been included instead of the studio recordings' 4 measure effort (imposed because the complete chart couldn't fit onto a single 78 rpm record). Our only alteration is that Tex Beneke's vocal line has been moved into the vocal group and the 5th sax voice has been added back instead. There are no sax doubles and the vocal keys are Eb & G. Vocal keys: Eb and G.

Do Nothin' Till You Hear From Me by Robbie Williams. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2130). Written by Duke Ellington and originally entitled Concerto for Cootie, Do Nothing Till You Hear From Me has been covered by all of the great vocalists including Ella Fitzgerald and Frank Sinatra. This version has been transcribed from the Robbie Williams Sinatra/Martin/Davis Jr tribute album, 'Swing When You're Winning.' The feel is almost a shuffle, and the chart has some great ensemble passages as well as a solo spot for Trumpet 2 (written out as played, with chords provided). The chart does require some top-end range from Trumpets 1 & 2 (up to a written high E) with some optional screaming from your lead player at the end of the chart. We have written in all of the dynamic markings and articulations that are so necessary to give this chart the correct balance, and have written the vocal line "as sung" by Mr. Williams.

Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend 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-2137). Made famous by the Monroe film Some Like it Hot, Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend is a sure crowd pleaser. This arrangement is a straight ahead female swing vocal, though not the Monroe version. The chart opens with a signature sax line and bass run-down into the first vocal chorus which starts with just rhythm backing (a suggested piano part has been written in for the 1st chorus). Saxes and brass are then layered in progressively through the 1st and 2nd choruses, but are written not to intrude on or compete with the singer. A relaxed tempo (at 130 bpm) is indicated although it will work fine at tempos up to around 160. When you buy this arrangement you get two versions - the parts come with an Ab version one one side and an Eb version on the reverse, so it will suit both alto and soprano vocalists. The brass ranges are moderate, with the Eb version easiest on the trumpets (lead to A) and the Ab version has the lead trumpet reaching Db. There are no sax doubles. Vocal Key: Ab or Eb Female vocal: Eb3(Bb4) - Ab4(Eb5) (11 steps).

Things arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2140). This happy tune was originally written and performed by Bobby Darin and has been recently re-done by Robbie Williams and Jane Horrocks on the 'Swing When You're Winning' album. This version is very much in the Williams style and has been written to be playable by bands of all levels. All rhythm section parts are written out in full, so no improvisation is required. The brass ranges are moderate, with the lead trumpet only having to reach G# and the lead trombone written to F#, but a light, disciplined touch is needed to keep the band tight and effective. The Darin signature of rising chromatic modulations is used in this arrangement too, providing a continuous lift. The chart is written as a male & female duet, though is perfectly playable with just one vocalist. The vocal keys are Eb, E and F. Vocal Key: Eb,E,F Male Vocal Range: Bb3-F5 (12 steps) Female Bb3-B4.

Is This Any Way To Fall In Love 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-2142). Featured on Linda Eder's album 'And So Much More' this chart is an up-tempo driving swing chart. Whilst the arrangement harks back slightly to the feel of a late 1950s Hefti style, the song itself is very contemporary and an indictment on the lack of romance in today's busy world. Lines such as "you woo me with faxes, I shelter your taxes" and "your lawyer sends me papers to sign" give you a clue! This chart is a true vocal feature, with the band providing complete and complimentary support for the artist. A short passage of call and response from the band to the singer near the end of the chart adds a neat touch. Reeds are scored AABBT and there are no doubles. A great chart, and something a bit different.

Big Time by Linda Eder. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2143). Made famous by Linda Eder, this 1994 Frank Wildhorn & Jack Murphy collaboration tells the story of what a girl has to do to make it to the top in showbusiness. From the opening Sing, Sing, Sing style drum solo this fast, punchy and very powerful chart will just knock your socks off, and your vocalist will need to be equally as dynamic to do it justice. The reeds are scored CATTB, though we have included an extra alto part - a transposition of tenor 1 - which allows your section to be CAATB, giving you flexibility as to who plays the clarinet line. The vocal key is E minor, modulating to F minor for the last chorus, and the vocal range extends one and a half octaves, from A below middle C up to Eb. The lead trumpet needs to hit high F# too. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: F#6, C#5, A5, G5 Trombones 1-4: C5, Ab4, F4, E4 Vocal key: Em to Fm (Female vocal A3 - Eb5 / 12 steps).

Hold Tight by The Andrews Sisters With Jimmy Dorsey. Arranged by Alan Glasscock. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2144). The Andrews Sisters recorded this chart with the Jimmy Dorsey orchestra in November 1938, and it went on to be a big hit for them. We have transcribed the original chart, but have scored it for 8 Brass and 5 Saxes rather than the original 5 + Clarinet (the Clarinet solo lines are now on Alto 2). The Andrews Sisters interweaving vocal lines are scored in full, as are all of the band backings with carefully notated dynamics and articulations, to allow your band to recreate the authentic sound. Another fine transcription from Alan Glasscock. Alto 2 doubles Clarinet, and the vocal key is Bb. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: C6, C6, C6, D5 Trombones 1-4: Bb4, Bb4, G4, G4 Vocal key: Bb Female Vocal Trio: Soprano 1: Bb3-C5; Soprano 2 Bb3-C5; Alto 1 G3-Bb4.

I Said No by Ella Fitzgerald. Arranged by Marty Paich, Jon Harpin. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Medium Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2145). Written by the then relatively unknown duo of Styne and Loesser for the 1942 movie Sweater Girl, this version is from Ella Fitzgerald's 1966 album 'Whisper Not,' with the original arrangements all by Marty Paich. Opening with a short Colla Voce, the chart moves smoothly into a relaxed balladic swing, with subtle backings from the band throughout. A rhythmically interesting bridge leads to the half-step up modulation with muted trumpet infills. A change to a more bluesy feel follows and the swing increases, with the bass now walking and the drummer using sticks. The improvised muted trumpet backings continue through the second half of the chart, which builds to punchy climax. We have written out the vocal lines in full, and the piano part contains all of the important licks and fills too. The vocal keys are G and Ab. Trumpets 1-4 D6, G5, Db6, G5 Trombones 1-4 B4, F4, D4, D4 Vocal keys: G, Ab Female Vocal Eb3 - Eb5 (2 octaves).

Yes Indeed by Tommy Dorsey. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with male or female vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2146). A fine Sy Oliver composition for the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, Yes Indeed is a 'swing spiritual' which Sy Oliver originally sang with the band. Dorsey recorded the chart a few times in a couple of keys, F (earlier) and G (later). This is the G version. Although it is a male/female vocal chart it has been scored to keep it flexible. It can be sung by a single vocalist, or can be played as an instrumental (it has been arranged with trumpet 2 and/or trombone 1 taking solos instead of the vocal lines). There are no sax doubles. This is the same chart as found in the Tommy Dorsey Instrumentals section. Vocal key: G.

Time Was by Helen O'Connell. Arranged by Marion Evans, Myles Collins. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Medium Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2152). This is the original Helen O'Connell version of Time Was, from her 1957 album 'Green Eyes,' as recorded with the Marion Evans Orchestra, and it opens as a beautifully scored lush ballad which switches into a double-time swing feel halfway through the chart. The reeds are written AATTB, with AATT all expected to double clarinet, and the baritone to double bass clarinet. However, recognizing that not every sax team can cope with this, alternate sax parts which do not have any required instrument doubles have been included. These parts are printed on the reverse of the original sax parts. The vocal key is Bb throughout. Also, this is not a transcription - the original handwritten Marion Evans arrangement has been used and adapted.

Green Eyes by Helen O'Connell. Arranged by Marion Evans, Myles Collins. For big band with female vocal. Mambo/Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2155). This is the original Helen O'Connell version of Green Eyes, from her 1957 album of the same name, as recorded with the Marion Evans Orchestra. The original manuscript was used, it is not a transcription. However, it has been slightly modified by the addition of the 'as-played' phrasing in the rhythm parts during the intro, and the 'as-played' dynamic markings in the brass. This arrangement is completely different to her earler duet chart that she used with the Jimmy Dorsey orchestra in that the first half of the arrangement is taken at a gentle pace in mambo latin style with the vocalist accompanied only by the rhythm section. At the end of the vocal chorus the band enters with a real kick, taking the tempo up and changing to a swing feel. This gives the chart a whole new lift, and it swings hard right to the end. The vocal key is Ab throughout, and there are no sax doubles.

In The Cool, Cool, Cool Of The Evening by Dean Martin. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2156). In the Cool, Cool, Cool of the Evening is another fine song from the pens of Mercer & Carmichael, and this version is a full transcription of the Dean Martin version. The only change from the original is that the clarinet doubles in the sax section (for the little flicks behind the opening vocal phrase) have not been included. The vocal key is F, modulating to C for the middle instrumental chorus, and returning to F for the last vocal chorus. There are no sax doubles. This chart is also in the vocal range of a female alto voice.

The Tender Trap by Frank Sinatra With Count Basie. Arranged by Neal Hefti, Jon Harpin. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Medium Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2158). Transcribed from the original Neal Hefti chart written for Sinatra's sessions with the Count Basie orchestra, The Tender Trap is a fine example of powerful writing which supports Sinatra's crooning vocal at every turn. The band parts are not hard, and the lead trumpet only goes to top C. The two little muted 2nd Trumpet fills have been written out as played, and the correct articulation and dynamics have been given on all of the parts, so your band can give an authentic Basie performance. There are no sax doubles. Vocal key F [Male Vocal C3 - F4 (11 steps) as sung].
