  • Always True to You in My Fashion

    This song was written by Cole Porter for the musical Kiss Me Kate. Our arrangement is similar to that performed by the great Julie London. This chart moves along nicely, with a mix of two & four beat feel & is elegant in its simplicity. The band parts are very straightforward, there are no sax doubles & the brass ranges are moderate, making it playable by bands of all levels of ability. The vocal is a comfortable female alto key of F. If your singer likes songs that tell a story. Always True to You will be a winner. Learn More
  • Begin the Beguine

    This Artie Shaw classic plays down just like the original ans is a "must have"  for any library.  Parts for CAATTB reeds are available on request should your band ever feature a Solo Clarinet player. Learn More
  • Don't Fence Me In

    ANDREW SISTERS BIG BAND GIRL VOCAL CHART. This arrangement of Don't Fence Me In is the version recorded by Bing Crosby with the Andrews Sisters in 1944. We have faithfully reproduced this chart, even down to the level of correctly detailing the crossing vocal lines sung by Maxene and Patty. Bing's part is written out "as sung" too. We have included the Piano fills and the rolling Piano and Bass lines that accompany the vocal trio in the second chorus. Saxes are scored for CATTB and the vocal key is Eb throughout. Learn More
  • Get Out of Town

    LENA HORNE BIG BAND GIRL VOCAL CHART This laid back medium groove Lena Horne version of the Cole Porter standard, originally on 'Give the Lady What She Wants', is now featured on the recent album 'Essential Jazz Singers'. Recorded in the 1950's - but this number just does not date. A great walking bass line, drums on brushes and perfect section writing for the horns adds up to the ideal combination. Transcribed by Cy Payne and in the key as recorded. Francy Boland no doubt had this version in mind when he created the laid back swinging chart for the 'All Smiles' 1968 Clarke Boland Big Band album. Learn More
  • I Get A Kick Out Of You

    From Sinatra's 1962 Reprise recording, I Get A Kick Out of You has become a Sinatra classic and a much requested tune. Original arrangement by Neal Hefti and his style is clearly apparent. Jon Harpin has produced a superb recreation of the original. Sinatra's vocal line is written out. The chart is technicaly not that difficult, but needs crispness and precision to make it come alive. the Trombones are scored for 3 Tenors and Bass. No Sax doubles. Duration 3:20. Learn More
  • Let's Do It

    Classic Cole Porter! Although written in the 1920's this number still has great entertainment value. Anyone who has heard the "husky" Eartha Kitt version will never forget it. This Cy Payne chart is in a very playable arrangement for the usual big band line-up, plus optional 3 Bb clarinets, 3 flutes & horn in F. A full band intro gives a clear lead into the first vocal chorus in the same way as in all our Swing Band Vocal titles. The middle 16 bar instrumental passage starts with unison gently swinging saxes & clarinets, followed by answering phrases featuring all sections, finishing with a  final vocal chorus with the full band. No jazz solos. Learn More
  • My Heart Belongs to Daddy

    Cole Porter penned some fabulous songs. My Heart Belongs to Daddy was written for the 1938 musical, Leave it to Me, & has a wonderfully naughty lyric where 'daddy' means 'sugar daddy'. Our arrangement is based on that recorded by Julie London, where her smoky-voiced style perfectly suits the tune. The chart is scored for 5, 4, 4, 4 & is not too demanding on the brass, plus there are no sax doubles either. If your singer has a low Alto range, then this number would suit her perfectly. The vocal key is F minor. Learn More
