  • Bedford Drive

    Bedford Drive has an altogether modern feel about it, with some interesting harmonic structures, particularly in the tutti passages. All of Shaw's solo sections are transcribed in full, & in parts they are fairly challenging, though your player can improvise from the chords if preferred. The Guitar solo is also transcribed, and cross-cued onto the Piano part in case you have no Guitar in your rhythm section. The brass ranges are moderate & there are no sax doubles. Duration 3'25".   Learn More

  • Big John's Special

    Big John's Special is a romping swing chart from the early years of the Benny Goodman Orchestra, when much of his success came courtesy of Fletcher Henderson's arrangements. We have expanded the chart up to 8 brass, & because the chart is not a Clarinet feature - it only has an 8 measure solo - we have scored the Saxes for a regular AATTB section, with Alto 2 doubling the Clarinet solo. We have also written out the Trumpet solos & the Piano solo in "stride" style. This tune makes an excellent choice for the swing dance crowd, & it is heaps of fun to play. Learn More
  • Big Time

    Linda Eder Big Band Vocal Chart. From the opening Sing Sing style drum solo this fast, punchy and very powerful chart will just knock your socks off. The reeds are scored CATTB, though we have included an extra Alto part - a transposition of Tenor 1 - which allows your section to be CAATB, giving you flexibility as to who plays the Clarinet line. Duration 3:40 Learn More
  • Birmingham Bounce

    Birmingham Bounce is a postwar chart from the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, featuring the singing & fiery Trumpet of Charlie Shavers. This is a very good dance chart & has a lot of nice features in the arrangement - Vocal stops, hand claps, powerful ensemble passages, a solo spot for Tenor & some screaming Trumpet licks too. As the name suggests, this chart really bounces along.  The Trumpet soloist has a written high F & the Trombones need to reach Bb. The key is Eb and would suit a high Baritone or an Alto. Learn More
  • Bizet Has His Day

    Made famous by the Les Brown Orchestra, this tune is one in a series of numbers where a classical theme is given the swing treatment. From a piano opening phrase, echoed by trombones, the lower Saxes enter with the fugue, the altos vary it, & trumpets are layered on top, to arrive at the full swing phrase. Solos for Alto 2, Trombone 2 & Piano. Lead alto doubles clarinet, Baritone doubles Alto. Learn More
  • Black Coffee

    This tune has been performed by many artists over the years, & is a 'must-have' standard in any repertoire. This particular version was done by Julie London & it oozes class. The vocal is sultry, moody, & tells a story of woe. The vocalist is backed sympathetically by the band, & the overall mood is helped by a sleazy Alto solo that winds in & out during the chart. The Trombones are scored for 3 Tenors & a Bass, & the Bass is vital to the arrangement.  There are no Sax doubles, the brass ranges are very moderate & the vocal key is A. Learn More
  • Blackbird

    Perhaps one of the Beatles' lesser known tunes, Blackbird remains one of their most creative and memorable. Mike Tomaro's smooth setting uses a blend of light funk along with a brief samba section to create a truly outstanding effect. The theme is stated simply in the beginning on trumpet, followed by an array of orchestrational textures and harmonies Learn More
  • Blacksmith Blues

    Written for Ella Morse, this song was originally the flipside to Love me or Leave Me, issued in 1952 and it became her biggest hit..  Whilst the original rcording has a fade out at the end, we have writen a definite ending as outside of a studio  fadeouts just don't work. Learn More
  • Blue Moon

    This swinging Nelson Riddle arrangement comes from Frank Sinatra's "Swingin' Session and More" record. In typical Riddle fashion, the chart begins with a memorable introduction and then the vocals enter with great rhythmic figures in the sax section and a familiar baritone sax line. Then the brass enter for the second A section and the chart really gets going. There is a tenor sax solo (over the first two A sections) that has been written out in full. The chord changes have been included as well in the event that your player wants to improvise instead. There are no sax doubles. Learn More
  • Blue'n' Moody

    Utilizing the Dorian mode and a bluesy melody, here is a catchy original perfect for teaching swing. This one also works great for beginning improvisers since the solo section uses only two chords (two scales). Sure to become a favourite with your band Learn More
  • Blues for moderns

    BIG BAND INSTRUMENTAL.Recorded by Don Lusher with the Ted Heath Band. This superb slow blues trombone feature has been tr. by Jerry Sheppard. Top note for trombone solo: G above middle C. The steadily building full band backing is well within the ability of the developing school band. Alternative B flat treble clef solo part included, suitable for trumpet or tenor sax. Key G. SPECIAL NOTE: The sample MP3 is a live recording of our actual published chart. Learn More
  • Blues Mode

    This medium swing chart from a very creative writer approaches the blues with a 24-bar blues form that really makes it easy to hear and feel the blues chord progression. Features include written solos for tenor sax and trombone, backgrounds behind the soloists, a clever interlude section, and the lead trumpet part range to written F top line. A traditional yet hip-sounding swing chart! Learn More
  • Blues On The Double

    Blues on the Double is a very rare Count Basie chart. Written by Buck Clayton & generally more associated with the Ellington band, this Basie version swings harder & offers more solo opportunities for Alto, Trumpet & Tenor. Perhaps unusually for a Basie chart there is no solo spot for Piano, though you could swap for a Sax solo if you wished. The chart is as per the recording sample, except that the Trumpet solo is swapped for a Clarinet solo instead. There are no written sax doubles. This is a driving up-temp swing dance chart. Learn More
