  • '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 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-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
  • Aces and Faces

    As part of our expanding Basie series, we are delighted to offer you the very rarely heard Aces & Faces, a medium swing tempo chart from the Basie band of 1945, featuring the Trumpet section. There are ad-lib solos for Piano, Clarinet, Tenor 1 (cued on 2), Trumpet 2 (cued on 1,3 & 4) & Trombone 1 (cued on 2) too.  This chart will make a refreshing addition to any library, & it is very playable, provided you have soloists who can improvise! Lead Alto doubles Clarinet. 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
  • After Supper

    BIG BAND INSTRUMENTAL. Another beautifully relaxed chart from the Basie Band, featured on the Atomic Mr Basie album.  It features Piano, Tenor & muted Trumpet solos & there are no sax doubles. The brass is muted throughout. Originally written for 7 brass, we have added an optional 4th Trombone part for completeness. The Bass Trombone is on the 3rd part.

  • All Of Me

    This version is a transcription of Basie's perfomance from the "Sinatra at the Sands" album and it differs slightly from the great Billy Byers studio version of the chart. The chart must be taken at a laid-back pace and your band needs to observe the written dynamics and articulations in order to achive the right feel. Learn More
  • All the Cats Join In

    Transcribed from her "Rare Gems & Hidden Treasures" album, this sultry chart shows off Peggy Lee's relaxed, almost drawling vocal style at its best. The arrangement is laid back, cool, very hip for its time and a pleasure to play. We have scored the Piano, Bass and Guitar lines "as played", as they cement the feel of the chart. The cameo Alto solo is written out too, with chords also provided. This chart is very straightforward, and the brass ranges are quite moderate (with lead Trumpet to high C# and lead Trombone to Bb). There are no sax doubles and the vocal key is Gm throughout. Learn More
  • All the Cats Join In

    Benny Goodman recorded this chart as an instrumental feature, to which a vocal overlay was added before it became part of the soundtrack for Disney's 1946 Make Mine Music cartoon cinema release. It's a hot swing chart that features Clarinet, Piano, Trombone, Trumpet and Tenor, and it works equally well as a concert or swing dance chart. Aside from the Piano solos, all the others are written out in full "as played" by the BG orchestra. We have cross cued the Piano solo chords onto the Clarinet part, should you wish to make this number an extended Clarinet feature. The reeds are scored CAATT and we have augmented the brass up to 8 voices. Learn More
  • All the Things You Are

    Recorded by Helen Forrest with the Artie Shaw band, this is an accurate transcription of the original Jerry Gray concept, complete with the intro Piano solo and Shaw's silky first chorus solo line. We have made a couple of small adaptations: the saxes are scored for AATTB, with Alto 1 taking the Clarinet lines, Baritone doubling Alto (to give the correct AATT backing to the Clarinet), and the brass has been augmented to 8 voices. All of the correct articulations, mute indications and dynamics are included, to enable an authentic performance. The vocal key is F and the vocal range would suit most male or female singers. The modulation into the vocal key is somewhat abrupt, so to help pitch the first vocal note the singer will need to listen to the top sax voice fairly carefully. Other than this, the chart is very playable, and the brass ranges are moderate. This is a great arrangement of a wonderful song. Learn More
  • Alright, Okay, You Win

    This version is a very dancable bouncy shuffle that has a solid pulse. There is nothing complicated about the chart & it is a fine example of how to score an arrangment to feature your vocalist. There is also a great 8 bar bridge between the vocal choruses which gives a real kick to the middle of the arrangement.The Trombones are written for 3 Tenors & a Bass, though the Bass bone is in Tenor range. We have scored the vocal chart to reflect Joe Williams' performance. No Sax doubles. Learn More
  • Always True to You in My Fashion

    This song was written by Cole Porter for the musical Kiss Me Kate. Our arrangement is similar to that performed by the great Julie London. This chart moves along nicely, with a mix of two & four beat feel & is elegant in its simplicity. The band parts are very straightforward, there are no sax doubles & the brass ranges are moderate, making it playable by bands of all levels of ability. The vocal is a comfortable female alto key of F. If your singer likes songs that tell a story. Always True to You will be a winner. Learn More
  • Amapola

    This is the Benny Goodman version of Amapola, with Helen Forest taking the vocal. A delightful tune, well delivered, & of course with a Clarinet solo from the great man himself. This chart is as per the original version, & we have scored the Saxes AATT plus a Clarinet Solo part. The trick with this chart is not to play it too fast. It just chugs along & swings all the way.  Learn More
  • And The Angels Sing

    Another classic adapted from the Benny Goodman arrangement. In the original arrangement the vocal chorus led to a typical Goodman 'Yiddish' trumpet chorus. In our arrangement this is replaced by a more conventional trumpet solo chorus & 'middle 8', with the vocal returning to close the chorus. The ending is as per the original, with a trumpet solo feature leading the band to a rousing finale. Learn More
  • Angels

    Small Band Vocal. Instrumentation: Vocal, Alto Sax, Tenor Sax, Trumpet, Trombone,4 Rhythm and Score. The MP3 sample is a recording of our published chart. Also available as a Big Band Vocal Learn More

  • Anvil Chorus

    Originally from Verdi's Il Trovatore, Anvil Chorus was a big hit for the Glenn Miller band, thanks to the fabulous arrangement by Gerry Gray. We have faithfully restored the original version here, complete with fully written out solos for Tenor & Trumpet. The Saxes are voiced AAATT throughout, as per the original & all dynamics are clearly marked. This chart is great in performance, & at 240 bpm you will need precision & nimble fingers to pull it off.
