  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • How About You?

    In 1955/56 Frank Sinatra went into the Capitol Studio with Nelson Riddle and recorded one of the best and most famous albums of all time:"Songs for Swingin' Lovers". We are proud to offer the closing track of that disc.This classic version  is a particularly famous arrangement crafted by the brilliant  Nelson Riddle to suit a big band vocal lineup.

  • 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
  • It Happened in Monterey

    Late in 1955 and early i1956 Frank Sinatra went into the Capitol Studio with Nelson Riddle and recorded one of the best and most famous albums of all-time:"Songs For Swingin' Lovers". From the opening straight-eight melody to the triplets tossed between sections, this chart is instantly recognisable. This has been adapted to suit a big band lineup. Learn More
  • Just Friends

    Here's Rob McConnell's tour de force arrangement of "Just Friends" from his 1981 album "Big Band Jazz Vol.1". We have used the original manuscript for this arrangement - it is not a trancription. It moves along at 224 bpm and is really designed for the cream of the professional bands. In addition to the tempo, there is a long sax soli and ensemble sections without the rhythm section. The chart feature solos for tenor sax, trombone, trumpet and alto sax. The ranges are very high for trumpet and trombone. It is scored for 5 trumpets and 5 trombones but can be played by a lineup of 5/4/4/4. Learn More
