  • Anything Goes

    Here's Nelson Riddle's famous arrangement from Frank Sinatra's classic record 'Song for Swingin' Lovers,' recorded in 1956. The arrangement opens with the guitar playing a little syncopated figure and alto 1 on flute. Trombones are on cup mutes for the vocal entrance. Unlike other Riddle/Sinatra charts from this period, there isn't any instrumental section in this arrangement - there are vocals throughout. This isn't really that difficult of an arrangement, but just a really great showcase for your male vocalist. Alto 1 doubles on flute. Learn More
  • Attitude Dance

    Celebrating more than 40 years of Funk and Soul, the unmistakable sound of Tower of Power still sounds as fresh and impressive as ever.This hot tune features blazing Horn lines and driving groove of the original. 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
  • Boogie Stop Shuffle

  • Can't We Be Friends?

    BIG BAND VOCAL. Recorded in 1962 and featured on the record "Sammy Davis Jr. Sings What Kind of Fool Am I and Other Show Stoppers", this Marty Paich arrangement is simple but swinging. There are 8-bar solos for alto sax and trumpet 2. Both of the recorded solos have been written out (chord changes have been included for improvisation). There were no guitar or piano in the original recording; however, optional parts have been included for both instruments. The vocals begin in D flat and modulate to E flat towards the end. There are no sax doubles. Learn More
  • Come Back To Me

    This is a fantastic (and difficult) Billy May arrangement from the Sinatra/Ellington album, recorded in 1967. This up-tempo swing chart (quarter note = 300!) features solos for clarinet and tenor sax. Trumpeter Cat Anderson's range was well-known to all. As a result, May writes optional notes for him that go to F7! And, Cat plays them! Of course, we realize that 99.99% of trumpet players can't reach these notes, but they are indicated nonetheless for those who want to try. Jazz Lines Publications is very proud to publish these arrangements with the support of Frank Sinatra Enterprises LLC. Finally the music of a truly landmark and historic recording session is available to the public. This has been published from the original parts used for the recording session. Learn More
  • Don't Worry 'bout Me

    This great arrangement of the Rube Bloom classic comes from the pen of Quincy Jones and was featured on the Frank Sinatra collaboration with the Count Basie Orchestra "Sinatra at the Sands". This has been transcribed from the original recording. This slow swing treatment features some light harmon trumpet fills behind the vocals (written for trumpet 3). Learn More
  • Down To The Nightclub

    From the group Tower of Power, this funky chart hits the mark. At 180 BPM, the chart includes solos for tenor, trombone, or guitar, with a lead trumpet range to written high C. Lots of ensemble, too! (2:47) Learn More
  • Eleanor Rigby

    Commissioned by the US Army Jazz Ambassadors, this arrangement by Eric Richards shines new light on the beauty and depth of the classic Beatles hit. An up-tempo Brazilian groove gives way to hints of samba and songo, but always with a smooth and laid back feel. Piano solo is featured off the top, followed by a trio of tenor, trombone and guitar on the head, and later solo space for one or more of these players. A brief nod to the classical feel of the original Beatles track helps build to a climactic shout for the full ensemble. Nice! Learn More
  • Europa

    One of Carlos Santana's more memorable compositions is this instrumental hit from 1976. Along with Santana's own recording, the version by saxophonist Gato Barbieri also became a hit that year. The haunting melody and sensual style of the original is authentically recreated in this version for full jazz ensemble that features a tenor sax soloist. Learn More
  • Evil Ways

    This Santana hit has endured through the years and been recorded countless times. Here it is like you've never heard it before in the masterful hands of Michael Mossman! Arranged for David Sanborn, it has substantial solo space for alto sax, but other soloists include trombone, trumpet and guitar. The opening features a laid back cha-cha feel with colorful scoring (flute is optional) before developing into a real powerhouse for the rest of the chart. Learn More
  • Goodbye Pork Pie Hat

    This is probably Charles Mingus' best- know compositions.  Sy Johnson's updated chart is the authentic version as performed by the Mingus Band on the CD " Blues and Politics Learn More
  • 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. Learn More
  • Groovin' High

  • 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
  • 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
