  • Goody Goody

    This 1936 tune represents some of the best of jazzy American pop. Due to its catchy melodic hook, this song has remained a jazz standard and has been interpreted in many styles. For Frank Sinatra's 1962 album "Sinatra and Swingin' Brass" Neal Hefti put together a steamrolling, brisk rendition to play off the song's melodic structure. This arrangement works so well against the melody beginning with a repeated rock-type melodic figure in the reeds. From the first measure you know you're in for a ride. There are no doubles.

  • I Won't Dance

    This is a vintage Neal Hefti arrangement from the 1962 Frank Sinatra and Count Basie collaboration "Sinatra-Basie". Mellow, but swinging lines and enough space to afford the vocalist some freedom of interpretation. The arrangement calls for alto 1 to double flute. An alternate alto 1 is included that avoids this in the event that you don't have a flutist available. The chart features a couple of short tenor sax solos, which have been written out. Learn More
