Avalon by Natalie Cole. Arranged by Bill Holman, Myles Collins. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Advanced. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LLM-2232). Written in 1920 by Jolson & DeSylva, this song was a favorite of Nat King Cole, and later featured by Natalie Cole on her 'Unforgettable' album. This is a transcription of her Bill Holman chart. It moves along at a very fast pace, and nimble fingers along with good playing technique are needed for your band to get it right, especially in the middle instrumental chorus. Lead Trumpet is written to high F and lead Trombone to high C. This is a punchy and very powerful arrangement full of interesting tonal color, and makes a rousing feature for any vocalist. It is a tough chart, and we have graded it as advanced. There are no Sax doubles, and the vocal key is C throughout. Ranges: Trumpets 1-4 : F6, D6, C#6, G5 Trombones 1-4 : C5, G4, G4, D4 Vocal Key: C [Female Vocal G3 - D5 (12 steps)].

Anything Goes by Frank Sinatra. Arranged by Nelson Riddle. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-9055). Here's Nelson Riddle's famous arrangement from Frank Sinatra's classic record 'Song for Swingin' Lovers,' recorded in 1956. The arrangement opens with the guitar playing a little syncopated figure and alto 1 on flute. Trombones are on cup mutes for the vocal entrance. Unlike other Riddle/Sinatra charts from this period, there isn't any instrumental section in this arrangement - there are vocals throughout. This isn't really that difficult of an arrangement, but just a really great showcase for your male vocalist. Alto 1 doubles on flute. Ranges: Trumpet 1: to B5; Trombone 1: to Bb4; Vocal Key: A flat modulating to A.

They All Laughed by Frank Sinatra. Arranged by Billy May. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2147). Transcribed by Jon Harpin from the original Billy May arrangement, this is Frank Sinatra's version of the Gershwin classic. The chart is scored for 5-4-4-4; the original string lines have been re-scored into the saxes, which means that alto 1 has the only clarinet double. Whilst the chart is by no means hard to play, the lead trumpet has some high notes, including a high F in the middle of the instrumental section which needs to be plucked out of nowhere, and a high Eb to finish. For this reason the chart is graded as difficult, rather than medium. The vocal key is F, modulating to Gb for the final chorus. Swing @ 120 bpm.

September In The Rain by Frank Sinatra. Arranged by Nelson Riddle. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2184). Here is a transcription of the Nelson Riddle chart done for Frank Sinatra. The original chart was written to include strings, and some orchestral woodwind; these parts have been re-scored into the chart for a regular 5444 line-up. However, to maintain the flavor of the wonderfully conceived original intro, both altos double flutes, and both tenors double clarinet. If your band can't manage this, don't worry. You can kick the chart off from the trombone entry in the 5th measure. The solo muted trumpet licks in the first chorus have been written out, and the vocal part is as-sung by Sinatra. The 4th trombone is bass, though playable by a tenor, with out of range notes taken up an octave, and the vocal key is D throughout. Swing @ 112 bpm.

My Way by Frank Sinatra. Arranged by Don Costa. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Medium Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2189). Here is the tune that Frank Sinatra called "the national anthem", and it's a chart that is sure to bring the house down. Sinatra's classic version, written by Don Costa, was very orchestral, and it has been adapted here to suit a regular 5444 band line-up without losing the feel of the original, by re-scoring the string lines into the saxes, with the 1st alto doubling flute, and the 2nd alto doubling clarinet. The piano part is also written out in full. The brass ranges are moderate, with 1st & 2nd trumpet to high C#, and 1st trombone to A, with 4th as a Bass. The vocal key is D throughout. This chart is one of those "must have" charts for any library. Ballad @ 80 bppm.

I've Got The World On A String by Helen O'Connell. Arranged by Hal Mooney. For big band with female vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2255). This is the original Helen O'Connell version of 'I've Got The World On A String,' as recorded with the Ray Anthony Orchestra in his 1953 Chesterfield Show. It is not a transcription. Although a short chart in actual playing time, it is full of punch, energy and drive, and in itself is a piece of American musical history. There are no sax doubles, and the vocal key is Bb throughout. Swing @ 145 bpm.

Old Macdonald by Frank Sinatra. Arranged by Nelson Riddle. For big band with vocal. Swing. Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2274). This chart has been transcribed from the Nelson Riddle arrangement on Sinatra's album 'Sinatra's Swingin' Session' from 1960. It is a 'builder,' and it builds up with style too. Nelson Riddle took this simple children's nursery rhyme tune and created a swinging masterpiece. The chart opens in the key of E, and modulates chromatically to the final key of A, all the while adding layers of backing from the band. Rhythm, then Saxes, then Trombones, then add some solo Trumpet fills, then the full band, all the while building the intensity up to a rip-roaring finish. This chart will be a real crowd-pleaser. It has been graded as difficult, as the brass ranges are quite high. Lead Trumpet to high F#, 2nd to high F# in one of the "as played" solo fills, and lead Trombone to B. Aside from the range issue, the chart is not hard to play. The piano line for the first 16 measures have been written out to match the original. There are no sax doubles, and the 4th Trombone is Bass. Swing @ 175 b.p.m.

Chicago by Tommy Dorsey. Arranged by Sy Oliver. For big band with male vocal [and optional vocal backing group]. Swing. Medium Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2263). A Tommy Dorsey - Sy Oliver classic, beautifully transcribed by Alan Glasscock from the 1945 Dorsey/Oliver/Sentimentalists recording. This chart features trombone, trumpet, clarinet and tenor, and of course your male vocalist and backing group, although it is perfectly singable with just a solo vocal instead. The chart has been presented here 'as-played' by the Dorsey band, and is has been graded as medium difficult, purely because the brass ranges are fairly high (trumpets 1,2,3 to at least Bb5, with option to D6, and 1st trombone to high C5). Alto 2 is written to double clarinet and take the solos. The tenor solo is written on tenor 1, and the trumpet solos on trumpet 2. The vocal chorus is in the key of Bb. Swing @ 150 b.p.m.

Accentuate The Positive by Johnny Mercer With The Pied Pipers And The Paul Weston Orchestra. Arranged by Alan Glasscock. For big band with solo vocal and vocal quartet. Swing. Medium Easy. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2213). Here is the 1944 hit version of Accentuate the Positive, performed by Johnny Mercer (who wrote the lyrics) and the Pied Pipers, with the Paul Weston Orchestra. The arrangement is scored for full big band, vocal solo and four piece vocal backing group. The chart also works fine without the backing singers, as their lines have been cross-cued into the trombone parts. Alto 1 doubles clarinet in the opening verse, but aside from this there are no other sax doubles. The vocal key is F throughout. Swing @ 85& 120 b.p.m.

The Birth Of The Blues by Louise Plowright. Arranged by Shaun Byrne. For big band with vocal. Swing. Medium Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-9057). Here is a great arrangement done by Shaun Byrne that is based on the recording done by Louise Plowright for the musical 'The Hot Shoe Shuffle.' After a brief 6-bar intro, the vocalist sings the first 8 bars of the verse colla voce with piano. The band is then cued in a tempo at 95 bpm. This features a lot of great ensemble writing including screaming trumpets (up to an optional F6 for tpts 1 and 2). 4 measures from the end there is a rallantando down to half time for the final 3 bars. This is just a superb chart to feature your female vocalist and proficient band. There are no sax doubles. The vocal key is Ab throughout.

Begin The Beguine by The Andrews Sisters. Arranged by Vic Schoen. For big band with female vocal trio. Dixieland/Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-9050). This is Vic Schoen's great arrangement of Begin the Beguine that was done for the unstoppable Andrews Sisters. The sisters had a major hit with this arrangement in 1939. The chart opens in a Dixieland 2 feel and stays there until measure 51 where it changes to a swing feel in 4. The vocal parts have been written out as-played and is trio throughout except for a 16 measure solo written on voice 2. Tenor saxophone 1 is on clarinet throughout (though the part can be played on tenor if need be). As is the case with most of the Andrews Sisters arrangements, there are great band fills in between vocal phrases. The vocal key starts in Bb then modulates to G then finishes up in Ab.

Taking A Chance On Love by Frank Sinatra. Arranged by Nelson Riddle. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2221). Another jewel of a chart from the Sinatra-Riddle 1954 album 'Swing Easy.' After just a three note intro we're right into the chart, with the rhythm section providing a very structured backing to the first 16 measures of the vocal chorus. These parts have been written as-played so your players can re-create the original feel. Most of the band backings are carried by the reeds and trombones, with the trumpets mostly providing muted background figures. This chart has been scored for 5/4/4/4, with the 4th trombone a bass. There are no sax doubles and the vocal keys are Bb, modulating to B for the final chorus. Swing @ 140 b.p.m.

On A Slow Boat To China by Bette Midler And Barry Manilow. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with male/female vocal duet. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2267). Transcribed from her album 'Bette Midler Sings the Rosemary Clooney Songbook,' this version was performed as a duet between Ms Midler and Barry Manilow (who also played the piano on the track), and it really bounces along. This arrangement is true to this version, except that the string lines have been scored into the saxes (with alto 1 doubling clarinet). The chart is perfectly singable by just a solo vocalist too. The piano part is written out in full, to help your band retain the original feel. The vocal key is D, modulating to Eb then E. Don't be put off by seeing the Eb instruments playing in 7 sharps. The notes fall easily under the players' fingers. Brass ranges are not demanding, and aside from alto 1 on clarinet there are no other sax doubles. Swing @ 145 b.p.m.

When You're Smiling by Frank Sinatra. Arranged by Myles Collins. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Medium. Full score and set of parts. Published by Lush Life (JL.LL-2275). This chart has been transcribed from the Nelson Riddle arrangement as performed by Frank Sinatra on 'Sinatra's Swingin' Session,' and is very true to the original. A couple of minor adjustments have been made to make it playable by a standard 5444 line up. Backing string lines are scored into the trumpets (muted) and the trombone section has been augmented to 4 voices. Other than this, it's just like the record. The muted trumpet solo fills and the important drum licks and kicks have also been written out. After an 8-measure intro which sets the feel of what is to come, it's a vocal feature throughout, backed by some very cool and swinging writing for the blowers which compliments the vocal phrasing all the way through the chart. This is Riddle at his best. The vocal key is Ab, modulating to A half way through. Don't be put off by seeing the Eb instruments playing in 6 sharps. The notes fall easily under the players' fingers. The brass ranges are very playable (lead trumpet to high D6) though trombone 1 has a couple of high B4s and C5s to cope with. There are no sax doubles. Swing @ 160 b.p.m.

I Get A Kick Out Of You by Frank Sinatra. Arranged by Neal Hefti. For big band with male vocal. Swing. Medium Difficult. Full score and set of parts. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-9013). We're proud to present the big band arrangement of one of the most famous Sinatra recordings 'I Get a Kick Out of You,' arranged by Neal Hefti. This arrangement, transcribed by Walt Stuart, was featured on the 1962 Reprise album 'Sinatra and Swingin' Brass.' This is not a particularly difficult arrangement though trumpet 1 does get pretty high to E6 and trombone 1 goes to B4. The real trick to this arrangement is getting the band to be as tight as possible, especially where there are accented band hits. The fourth trombone is written for bass. The arrangement features an 16-measure alto saxophone solo. Chord changes have been included for your alto player to improvise. There are no saxophone doubles.

Supposedly Crosby went into the studio on July 25, 1944 having not previously seen or heard this song and within 30 minutes, he and the Andrews Sisters had made the recording, which later sold over a million copies and topped the Billboard charts for eight weeks in 1944-45.

Sorta Kinda by Claude Thornhill. Arranged by Gil Evans. For big band with vocal solo. Swing. Difficult. Score and parts. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-8149). This is one of our favorite Gil Evans arrangements, and we're delighted to be able to publish it. Evans took a simple little tune, arranged the first chorus as jump swing, employed a tricky modulation that is linear and dissonant part of the way (shades of “Moon Dreams”), and from the vocal on, turns “Sorta Kinda” into a fun exercise in bebop.

What's Your Story, Morning Glory? by Andy Kirk. Arranged by Mary Lou Williams. For big band with vocal (or reed feature). Slow Swing. Medium. Score and parts. Published by Jazz Lines Publications (JL.JLP-8873). This arrangement of What's Your Story, Morning Glory? was written for Andy Kirk to feature a male vocalist (Pha Terrell) and clarinet (John Harrington). We have adapated the arrangement so that it may be played as clarinet (or alto sax) feature instead. The vocal part is cued in reed 2 in the event that you wish to play this as an instrumental. In addition, we have included an alternate reed 2 part that avoid the clarinet double, allowing the reed played to remain on alto throughout. Also featured is a tenor saxophone solo. The key is Db. This was recently recorded by the Dutch Jazz Orchestra on their tribute to Mary Lou Williams.
