  • Flying Home

    Written by Benny Goodman and Lionel Hampton, this tune was a mainstay of the Goodman Sextet, featuring Charlie Christian. The version that we offer you here is transcribed from the Ted Heath album "Swing is King", recorded in 1968, and it swings really hard and fast from start to finish. Because of the tempo, the unison sax lines and the high range of the Trumpet solo we have graded the chart at the advanced level. The Trumpet solo is written on the fiirst part but cued on 2, 3 and 4. The same is true for the short 4 measure Trombone solo in the middle of the first chorus. The Piano solo in the intro is written out in full. Alto 1 is written on Soprano for the first chorus, though is equally effective played on Clarinet. Aside from this there are no other sax doubles. This chart is classic Ted Heath. Learn More
  • Tain't What You Do

    Scored for a standard 5444 big band line up plus male vocal, with the instrumentalists in the band doing the majority of the singing. The male vocal part (originally taken by Oliver himself) takes the little verse (in Eb) prior to the band vocal and provides the "answer-back" to the band vocal chorus. The vocal chorus key is Ab. Both the Alto and Tenor sax solos are written out "as-played" and there are no instrument doubles in the saxes. The drum solo before the shout is also written out, though your drummer is free to improvise a solo here if preferred. This chart will be a genuine crowd pleaser (they can join in the singing too) and will work in a gig or concert setting. Learn More
