  • 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
  • Perdido

    Perdido was one of Duke Ellington's early big hits. The Duke's version is a very laid-back swinger that chugs along in a steady groove. The chart opens with a cameo Piano solo, the Bari Sax picks up the tune & improvises on the repeat, with the brass plunger figures pulsing away behind it. The middle 8 is taken as a Trumpet solo (written out) & on it goes! This chart is a solo feature for Tenor 2 & Trumpet, as both have improvised solos. Tenor 1 doubles Clarinet & there are no other sax doubles. Learn More
