  • Hey There

    BIG BAND GIRL VOCAL CHART. Here is a lovely vocal version of the famous standard as arranged by Hal Mooney and performed by Helen O'connell. There is nothing complicated about this arrangement - it is light and swinging, a great showcase for your vocalist. For added interest there are some brief arco bass passages. Learn More
  • I'm Getting Sentimental Over You

    Recorded by Helen O'Connell in the early 1950s. This is not a transcription, the original handwritten manuscript was used to produce this arrangement. The chart opens in Bb with the brass on cup mutes and played very straight(without vibrato). Towards the end it modulates to C. The brass ranges are moderate. This is a great chance to play a classic, swing era vocal arrangement from the pen of the master. Learn More
  • Love Me or Leave Me

    This bluesy chart by Hal Mooney was arranged for Helen O'Connell to be recorded for Capital Records in 1951. However we believe it never happened. The chart opens with a 2-bar, minor blues vamp featuring a muted trumpet solo. From there the vocals enter in Bb minor(Db major). The middle of the arrangement features an 8-bar piano solo. There are no sax doubles. Learn More
  • Star Eyes

    This chart flows nicely and supports the singer well. Helen O'Connell also recorded a version of this song in 1953. That version featured strings, celeste, a harp, flute, clarinets and bass clarinets. There aren't any complicated passages nor are there any doubles.The duration of the chart is just over 3 minutes.

  • This Girl's In Love With You

    This classic 60's tune was written by the great team of Burt Bacharach & Hal David. This arrangement is an original Hal Mooney chart, as sung by Helen O'Connell on her many concert tours, though as far as we know she never recorded it. The arrangement is a classy piece of smooth & mellow writing, with the band never overpowering the vocalist. The brass ranges are moderate, there are no sax doubles & the vocal key is Ab throughout. A great little chart for those times when you need to dim the lights & soften the mood. Learn More
  • What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life

    This Arrangement begins rubato with a brief ensemble passage featuring arco bass. This proceeds to a piano/bass colla voce for the A section of the tune. The band is cued in at B in soft rock style with drums on brushes. At the end of the chorus there is a brief piano/bass colla voce that features a quote from the song "All the Things You Are". The band is then cued back in for the last A section of the tune. The chart finishes with a rubato section with arco bass. This is not a transcription. Learn More
