Volare arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2159). This is an up-tempo, hard swinging female vocal version of Volare, and not a meek Latin rendition. The chart was transcribed and adapted from a version done by the German singer and actress Yvonne Catterfeld, and the original can be found on YouTube. After a big intro (scored optional 8va for the trumpets - great if they can handle the range) the first chorus is all vocal, lightly backed by the band. Then comes a 16 measure bridge (which is the opening verse as written originally by Domenico Modungo) followed by the second chorus, with the band backings building in intensity to the modulation (up one whole step). A final half chorus leads to a false fade-out and big finish. There are no sax doubles, and the Baritone is written to low A. The vocal keys are F modulationg to G. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: C6, G#5, G5, E5 Trombones 1-4 Bb4, G4, F4, F4 Vocal key: F-G Vocal Range: C4 - C5 (8 steps).

This is the original Helen O'Connell version of 'Just You, Just Me,' from her album 'Here's Helen,' as recorded with the Marion Evans Orchestra. It is not a transcription. The chart is an up tempo swinger that calls for some precision playing in the brass, particularly in the unison licks in the intro, instrumental bridge and closing, where split notes will stick out like a sore thumb! There are no sax doubles and the vocal key is Ab throughout. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: D6, B5, Bb5, Bb5 Trombones 1-4: C5, A4, Ab4, Ab4 Vocal key: Ab Vocal Ab3 - Bb4 (9 steps, as sung).

Come Rain Or Come Shine by Helen O'Connell. Arranged by Marion Evans, Myles Collins. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2186). Here is the Helen O'Connell version of the Johnny Mercer classic "Come Rain or Come Shine". This is her original chart, and to the best of our knowledge was never commercially recorded by her. This is not a transcription - the original handwritten Marion Evans arrangement has been used and adapted. It is a piece of American musical heritage and we are proud to be able to offer it here. This chart is a "2-in-1", in that the parts come double-sided, for versions with and without strings. In the without-strings version both altos double flutes and both tenors double clarinets. In the with-strings version there are no sax doubles, so please use this one if your players don't double. Both versions feature an alto sax solo. There are two conductor scores in the pack, with and without strings. The string sction is Violins ABC, Viola and Cello. The chart was scored for 6 brass and we have expanded it to 8, but have retained the original voicings, ie the 4th voices are optional and the chart works well with 6 brass. The chart runs at 3 minutes long, and is structured as intro, vocal chorus, tutti with Alto sax solo, final half chorus. The vocal key is Bb.

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).

Hound Dog arranged by Andy Firth. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Medium Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2208). 'Hound Dog' is firmly associated with Elvis, and Clapton did a good cover of it too. However, this version is not really rock 'n' roll. It opens in a slight funk/Latin groove in C minor, moving to C major for the vocal entry, but maintains the Latin feel. After the first vocal chorus the brass takes a beautifully-crafted descending minor phrygian bridge which the saxes then pick up to modulate into the instrumental chorus, followed by a ripping tenor sax solo. The vocalist re-enters in the original key and the chart switches to a rock feel for the final chorus. This arrangement is wonderfully conceived and is a totally refreshing approach which works extremely well. The vocal key is C, and there are no sax doubles. Sorry, there is no sound sample at this time, but we aim to provide one in the near future.

Dream A Little Dream Of Me by Helen O'Connell. Arranged by Hal Mooney, Myles Collins. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2224). Here is another original Helen O'Connell chart as played by her on her many concert tours. This is not a transcription. To the best of our knowledge this cart was not commercially recorded, hence there is no audio sample. The arrangement is written in a very laid back, bluesy style, and the short intro sets the tone perfectly. This is a true vocal feature, and there are no instrumental solos or tutti passages. Everything supports the singer. The lead brass voices are writen quite high in a couple of places: Trumpet 1 hits high Eb in measure 1, but only reaches B after that. Dropping Trumpets 1& 2 down an octave in measure 1 works well too. Trombone 1 reaches high C# in one backing passage, but is only to Ab elsewhere. This high phrase is cross-cued onto the Trumpets. The vocal key is Db throughout, and there are no sax doubles.

The Very Thought Of You by Ella Fitzgerald. Arranged by Nelson Riddle, Jon Harpin. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Medium Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2228). The Very Thought of You is the Ella Fitzgerald version. Originally arranged by Nelson Riddle, it has been transcribed and adapted by Jon Harpin. This chart is featured on the 'Ella Swings Gently With Nelson' album. Although the original was scored with strings, those string parts have been written into the band, making the chart playable with a regular 5/4/4/4 line up. Please note that separate string parts are not available. The trombones are written fairly high in the intro, with the lead expected to pick a high C out of the air in the 3rd measure. Therefore the trombone lines have been cued onto the trumpet parts in the intro, to make things a bit easier. The muted trumpet solo is written out 'as played', though your player can improvise a solo from the chords provided too. There are no sax doubles, and the vocal key is Eb. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: D6, D6, A5, F5 Trombones 1-4: C5, Bb4, G4, Eb4 Vocal key Eb.

Help Yourself by Tom Jones. 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-2229). This song is another of Tom Jones' most famous hits, and will get any crowd onto the dance floor. It is just one of those great party songs. This arrangement follows the form and structure of the original recording, except that a positive finish to the chart has been written as the studio version ran to a fade out. Also, the string lines have been scored into the saxes to add depth and tonal colour. There are no sax doubles, and the brass ranges are very playable. The vocal key is Eb modulating to E. There are no sax doubles.

Almost Like Being In Love by Natalie Cole. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2233). Transcribed from her 'Unforgettable' album, here is Natalie Cole's up tempo, hard swinging version of Almost Like Being In Love. This chart really kicks from start to finish, and is full of power and punch, though it is not that easy to get right. The band will need to be tight, and the trumpet section has some quick unison lines to get their fingers around. Precision is needed otherwise things can get messy. Ms Coles' vocal line is notated 'as sung,' including the little scat towards the end of the instrumental bridge, and the muted trumpet solo at the close has been written out. There are no sax doubles and the vocal key is F, modulating to Gb in the final chorus. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: D6, D6, C6, G5 Trombones 1-4: A4, F4, F4, D4 Vocal key: F modulating to Gb Female Vocal Range: C4 - F5 (11 steps, as sung).

This Can't Be Love by Natalie Cole. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2234). Transcribed from her "Unforgettable" album, here is Natalie Cole's stylish rendition of the Rodgers and Hart tune, This Can't Be Love. This chart swings like crazy from start to finish and moves smoothly from the two beat style of the first vocal chorus, into four beat swing for the instrumental bridge and last vocal passage. The band writing is full of fine tonal colour and supports the vocalist perfectly without ever overpowering proceedings. In her version the reeds were written with Flute and Clarinet doubles. This chart is scored for a regular AATTB sax section with no instrument doubles. The vocal key is Eb throughout.

I Only Have Eyes For You by Ella Fitzgerald. Arranged by Nelson Riddle, Jon Harpin. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2244). Here is the Ella Fizgerald / Nelson Riddle version of I Only Have Eyes For You, transcribed and adapted by Jon Harpin from the "Ella Swings Brightly With Nelson" album. The original version contained strings, which have been scored back into the saxes, making the chart playable by a regular 5/4/4/4 line-up. As you would expect from a Riddle chart, this arrangement is full of punch, contains some great rhythmic and harmonic writing and is full of interest for band and audience alike. It has been rated at the difficult level, mainly because of the brass ranges. Lead trumpet hits high E and lead trombone high C. The 4th trombone is a bass (playable 8va by a tenor). There are no sax doubles, and the vocal key is G throughout. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: E6, C#5, B5, G5 Trombones 1-4: C5, G4, E4, D4 Vocal key: G Female Vocal Range: D3 - D5 (2 octaves, as sung).

Pick Yourself Up by Ella Fitzgerald. Arranged by Nelson Riddle, Jon Harpin. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2245). Pick Yourself Up has been lovingly transcribed by Jon Harpin from the wonderful album 'Ella Swings Brightly With Nelson', and the chart shows off the best of both vocalist and arranger. The structure of the chart sounds simple - a bold intro, vocal chorus, band interlude with tenor and trumpet solo breaks and a rousing vocal chorus to finish - but the writing in it is simply stunning. The chart opens in the key of C, moves to D then Eb, reverts to C and D for the instrumental sections and back to Eb and C for the last vocal chorus. There is always something happening to catch the ear of the listener, and your band needs to be awake too. The brass is written quite high, with lead trumpet to high F and lead trombone to B. Alto 1 also doubles clarinet. Not an easy chart, but it is a classic. Trumpets 1-4: F6, E6, C6, Ab5 Trombones 1-4: B4, Ab4, F4, E4 Vocal key: C to D to G to C Female Vocal: E3 - C5 (13 steps) as sung.

Call Me Darling by Ella Fitzgerald. Arranged by Nelson Riddle, Jon Harpin. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Medium Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2246). Taken from 'Ella Swings Gently With Nelson,' Call Me Darling is pure Ella at her silky best. This chart has been lovingly transcribed and adapted from the original Nelson Riddle version by Jon Harpin. The strings are now gone, re-scored into the brass, making the chart playable by a regular big band line-up. Altos 1 & 2 are written with flute doubles, though alternate alto parts that don't have the flute lines have been included in case your players don't double. The Bob Cooper tenor solo is also written out, though your player can improvise his/her own from the chords if preferred. The vocal part is written 'as sung' by Ella and the vocal key is C throughout. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: A5, F#5, D#5, C#5 Trombones 1-4: A4, F4, C#4, B3 Vocal Key: C Vocal Range: G3 - B4 (10 steps, as sung).

Cheerful Little Earful by Ella Fitzgerald. Arranged by Nelson Riddle, Jon Harpin. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Medium Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2247). Once in a while an album is made which simply brims with class. This chart is from such an album - 'Ella Swings Brightly With Nelson' - and it not only oozes class, but swings like crazy too. Nelson Riddle's treatment perfectly balances the showcasing of the vocalist and the talents of the band. The first vocal chorus is backed by a series of call and response figures between the sections, all of which are snappy and pack punch. The insrumental interlude is a development of this theme, with the sax solis answered by the brass, building to a climax before the vocal return for the last chorus and big finish. A class Riddle chart. There are no sax doubles, and the vocal key is Bb throughout. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: C#6, Bb5, G5, E5 Trombones 1-4: Bb4, G4, F4, D4 Vocal key: Bb Female Vocal Range: A3 - C5 (10 steps as sung).

And Her Tears Flowed Like Wine by Stan Kenton And Anita O'Day. Arranged by Alan Glasscock. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2254). This is the Stan Kenton & Anita O'Day version, though it has been modified to play with 8 brass, rather than the original 10. This chart is unusual, in that the band gets to sing the choruses and the female vocalist sings the verses, so it makes for a great performance number. After the triple verse chorus vocals the band rounds the chart off with a big and punchy 14 measure section to bring things to a rousing close. This chart has been graded as difficult due to the need for trumpet 1 to reach high F and trombone 1 to hit high C. Aside from this, the chart is an medium easy. The vocal key is F throughout and there are no sax doubles. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: F6, C6, Bb5, A5 Trombones 1-4: C5, A4, F4, D4 Vocal key: F Vocal Range: A3 - A4 (1 octave, as sung).

I Was A Fool To Let You Go by Barry Manilow. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2257). Taken from Barry Manilow's 1978 album 'Even Now,' this chart is a great lounge ballad with a bluesy feel. Opening with solo piano, the vocal enters backed by just the rhythm section. The saxes add to the build, supported by muted trumpets, and the trombones then lead the bridge. The instrumental break is big and powerful with lush voicings, whilst not being too overpowering. The vocalist re-enters with a half step up modulation into the final chorus and the chart finishes up with a big crescendo, piano solo lick and muted trumpet solo fill to fade. The brass ranges are moderate, and there are no sax doubles. The vocal keys are Ab to A. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: C#6, Ab5, Ab5, F5 Trombones 1-4: G#4, Eb4, Eb4, Eb4 Vocal Key: Ab modulating to A Male Vocal Range: Bb2 - Eb4 (11 steps, as sung).

Around The World by Matt Monro. Arranged by Jon Harpin. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2259). This version of Around the World was recorded by Matt Monro, and has been transcribed by Jon Harpin. The chart opens as an up-tempo swinger, full of great rhythmic puncuations from the band in support of the vocalist in the first chorus. A band tutti follows, which leads to a one step up modulation, then a half-tempo feel change to bring the chart to a rousing finish. The original studio recording had a few measures scored for strings. These string parts have been re-scored into the saxes, so the lead alto is required to double clarinet. There are no other sax doubles, and the 4th trombone is written for bass. The vocal keys are Bb modulating to C. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4: D6, D6, C6, G5 Trombones 1-4: C5, A4, E4, C4 Vocal key: Bb modulating to C Vocal Range: F2 - G4 (17 steps, as sung).

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)].

I Only Have Eyes For You by Frank Sinatra With Count Basie. Arranged by Neal Hefti, Jon Harpin. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LLH-2086). Beautifully transcribed by Jon Harpin from the Neal Hefti chart written for the Sinatra Basie album, I Only Have Eyes For You is pure crooning Sinatra, yet with enough in the chart for the band to shine alongside the vocalist. The arrangement is taken at an easy, laid-back tempo, and is full of rich tonal colour and shade which is the trademark of Hefti. The opening is scored for flute doubles by the altos, though the lines are also scored in the tenors in case your altos don't play flutes. Sinatra's vocal is written as performed, and all the dynamics and articulations are written clearly so that your band can re-create an authentic performance. The vocal key is Bb throughout.

I Guess I'll Have To Change My Plan by Tony Bennett With Count Basie. Arranged by Ralph Sharon, Jon Harpin. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LLH-2187). This version of 'I Guess I'll Have To Change My Plan' was recorded by the great Tony Bennett with the Count Basie Orchestra and is a laid back swinger in true Basie style. The only change to the Ralph Sharon original is to voice the brass for an 8 piece section. Aside from the big instrumental soli in the middle of the chart it is the saxes who do most of the backing lines behind the vocal, using some innovaive voicings to give the chart a great jazz feel. The trumpet lines are quite high, with lead reaching high F# and second to high C#. Although not a long chart, it is a classic of its genre and worth its place in any library. Another great transcription from Jon Harpin. The vocal key is C and there are no sax doubles. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4 : F#6, C#6, Bb5, G5 Trombones 1-4 : Bb4, G4, E4, E4 Vocal Key: C [Vocal C3 - A4 (13 steps as sung)].

Oh Johnny, Oh Johnny, Oh by The Andrews Sisters. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with female vocal trio [SSA]. Swing. Medium Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LLM-2008). Oh Johnny! was another early hit for the Andrews Sisters and it has been reproduced here for you. The chart has been adapted by expanding it to full big band form, up from the smaller band which was used to back the sisters. Also, the chart has been written out in the key of C, rather than the key of B which some recordings imply. The reeds are scored CAATB, though an extra tenor part - a transposition of alto 2 - has been included, making the reeds CATTB, to give you flexibility in your sax section. The vocal parts are written in for SSA voices and are 'as sung' by the Andrews Sisters. This is a really bouncy number, and great fun to play. Vocal key: C Female Vocal SSA Trio.

Don't Sit Under The Apple Tree With Anyone Else But Me by Glenn Miller. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with vocal quartet [SATB]. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LLM-2065). This is Glenn Miller's version that was originally performed by the Modernaires vocal group. It has been scored for boy and girl vocal duet and a part for the vocal harmony group has been included also. The form of the arrangement is true to the original. The band intro is there, as are the correct modulations and fills behind the vocal lines. This is also offered as an instrumental-only version. No sax doubles and the brass ranges are not demanding. Good fun! Vocal key D/C/Db.

L-O-V-E by Natalie Cole. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LLM-2138). This chart is an adaptation Natalie Cole's L-O-V-E (LOVE) (L is for the way you look at me...) which sticks very closely to her version. It is a medium to up-tempo swing chart, opening in the key of G with rhythm and vocal, the trombones then join, with a muted trumpet adding little fills, then onto a muted trumpet solo chorus backed by saxes and trombones. A quick modulation to Ab brings the vocal back in, with the whole band backing and the chart builds and builds to a rousing climax. Natalie's vocal line in the Ab section is her interpretation of the melody, and rises to F with a final high Ab flourish. If your vocalist chooses to stay with the original vocal line, she will only need to reach C, giving the chart a 1 octave vocal range. There are no sax doubles. Vocal key: G to Ab Female Vocal: C#4 - F5 (11 steps as written).
