  • 'S Wonderful

    BIG BAND INSTRUMENTAL. Originally arranged by Ray Conniff for the Shaw band and recorded in January 1945, this excellent chart works so well on many levels. It contains a fair number of innovative arrangement techniques: the opening unison Trombone riff, the Tenor doubling lead beneath the Trumpets, the Clarinet leading the Trumpets in the middle eight, a five-part combo in the middle and a great shift to full swing feel after Shaws' glorious solo work (which written out in full). Conniff has taken what is otherwise an arguably slightly dull tune and turned it into a masterpiece. This chart is a must for all Shaw lovers. Learn More

  • 12th Street Rag

    BIG BAND. 12th Street Rag as you never imagined! It opens by imitating traffic along 12th Street, in a series of dissonant hoots before the band kicks in with the real intro. The chart uses a dixie band-in-band on three occasions, in a different historical jazz style - 20's, 40's and 60's. Interspersed with these are some blasting tutti passages. The whole piece goes through 5 modulations, building all the time. This is a very challenging chart in all sections. Also both Altos and Tenors double Clarinet, and the Bari doubles Alto for his solo (which can be played on Bari instead). Learn More
  • 920 Special

    Version taken from the 1960's & forms part of our Basie series ready for his Centenary in 2004. It features some great sectional work & interplay between Saxes & Trumpets throughout the chart. This chart features solo space for Alto, Trumpet & Tenor, plus we have written out Count Basie's piano solos & fills for you, though your pianist can always improvise from the chords. No sax doubles. Learn More
  • A Foggy Day

    This swinging studio orchestra arrangement was written by Billy Byers in May of 1970 for a concert that Sinatra gave at Royal Festival Hall in November of that same year. This is classic Sinatra/Byers - swinging reed figures and punchy brass with string support. We have included a synth part that may be used in the event that your ensemble doesn't have access to string players. This is not a difficult arrangement (except for the brass ranges) and would be fairly easy to work up for a concert. Also, we have included the vocal line as written by Byers. Key of D flat. Learn More
  • A Horse With No Name

    BIG BAND INSTRUMENTAL. This is a simple swing-feel chart with a very catchy melody and very modest ranges. A flexible solo section can be used for all players, any groupings, or an individual solo. Learn More
  • A Kiss From You

    This enchanting melody originated in a score Carter wrote for television's 'Chrysler Theater' in 1963. It was known as 'Lydia' until Johnny Mercer added a lyric. At a 1973 concert at Princeton University Carter offered the big band version which was recorded in 1986 by the American Jazz Orchestra. Learn More
  • A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square

    Lovingly transcribed by Alan Glasscock from Miller's October 1940 New York recording originally arranged by Bill Finegan and sung by Ray Eberle, this lush chart is classic Miller, full of tonal colour and rich dynamics. The reeds are scored CAATT, with all saxes called upon to double Clarinets. Tenor 2 also has a short Bass Clarinet line underneath the Trombones, but this can be played as written on Tenor. The Tex Beneke solo is written out in full too.  The vocal key is Eb. Learn More
  • A Shade Of Jade

    This arrangement features a lengthy solo for a tenor saxophone soloist. Included are open solo sections so that any number of soloists may be featured. In addition, while there was no guitarist used during the recording sessions, we have included a guitar part as Joe had done in his arrangements. These arrangements will require significant time to work them up, but they would be a amazing for any competition or festival! This has been edited and egraved directly from Joe's original scores and parts - this is not a transcription. Learn More
  • A Winter's Tale

    CONCERT BAND. The classic Queen number in a full concert band arrangement. Learn More
  • A-Tisket A-Tasket

    Big Band Girl Vocal . A-Tisket A-Tasket was a hit for Ella Fitzgerald during her time with the Chick Webb band, & remains one of her most memorable charts. Klaus Lessmann has produced a classy transcription of this chart & had adapted it for a full band line-up. Everything is here, including the band answer-back vocals. Both the sax & the brass sections get to have a go! All articulations are clearly marked & the vocal sheet is as per Ella's performance. Learn More
  • Accentuate the Positive

    BIG BAND GIRL VOCAL. This stunning Ella Fitzgerald chart is a classic.  The arreangement is as the original, except that we have simplified the sax lines behind the opening verse and made a small Trumpet voicing change in the second measure. Learn More

  • Act Your Age

    This hot Gordon Goodwin chart is now for the younger player. Slick and funky describes this very accessible arrangement. There are written solos for 1st alto (cued for 2nd alto) and a 1st trumpet solo cued in all four trumpet parts. Lead trumpet has a written A above the staff, but technically this chart is not difficult and will come together quickly to earn a spot in your programme. Learn More
  • Adios

    A hauntingly beautiful number from the Glenn Miller book. Ours is a faithfull reproduction of the original arrangement, with correct Miller voiced Saxes throughout. Lead Trumpet takes the solo line, & lead Trombone has the muted middle solo. This chart is all about dynamics & blending of instruments, in order to achieve the right feel & expression. The notes are easy, but the band must be light. Sax doubles. Alto 1 on Clarinet throughout. Baritone - Alto   Learn More
