  • Ain't We Got Fun

    BIG BAND GIRL VOCAL. Recorded by Doris Day with the Paul Weston orchestra, the original arrangement was by Paul Weston.  Our transcription closely mirrors the original, except that we have cued the Trombone section with the 4 voice backing group parts, making the chart playable by big band and female vocalist.

  • Danny Boy

    Here is the lovely Danny Boy (Londenderry Air) as played by the Miller Band., this chart features Miller voiced saxes, beautifully balanced muted brass & some delicate piano work which is written out for your pianist in the places that matter.  The lead Trombone is the cameo-featured solo instrument & its range goes quite high - to top C#. Lead Alto is on Clarinet throughout. 2nd Alto doubles Clarinet & the Baritone doubles Bass Clarinet, though we have cued the passage with notes for the Bari in case a Bass Clarinet is unavailable.

  • Frankie & Johnnie

    Frankie and Johnnie is a lovely solo feature for Clarinet, Tenor & Trumpet.  This particular version is as played by members of the Goodman orchestra an it bounces from start to finish. Learn More
  • God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen

    BIG BAND INSTRUMENTAL. A very playable relaxed swing chart . The bass guitar & piano set the mood with a unison 8 bar intro. The tenor saxes and trombones then present the melody, with the full band  really swinging right to the end. Includes a key change to Dm for the last chorus. No jazz solos. Duration 3:14 Learn More
  • Lincolnshire Poacher

    The Lincolnshire Poacher is a traditional English song, given the full swing treatment by the Ted Heath band. This chart is up, bouncy & always a crowd pleaser. The chart itself is very straight ahead, though the lead Trombone does go up to a high C briefly. There is a solo spot for Tenor sax (chords also cued on the Tenor 2 part) & there are no sax doubles.

  • Loch Lomond

    Here is a great take on that well known Scottish traditional ditty.  This chart is transcribed from the version done by members ot the Benny Goodman orchestra in 1959 and features solo spots for Clarinet, trumpet and Alto. Learn More
  • Old MacDonald

    Nelson Riddle took this simple children's nursery rhyme & created a swinging masterpiece.The chart opens in the key of E & modulates chromatically to the final key of A all the while adding layers of backing from the band.Rhythm, then Saxes, then Trombones, then add some solo Trumpet fills, then the full band.Brass ranges are quite high F#2, 2nd to high F# in one of the "as played" solo fills & lead Trombone to B. We have written out the Piano line for the first 16 measures. No sax doubles. Learn More
  • Swing Low Sweet Chariot

    Bill Finegan wrote the original version of this arrangement for Glenn Miller's civilian band, and adapted it for Miller's USAAF band. This is the version that we have here. Transcribed beautifully by Alan Glasscock, this rousing chart has instant appeal is worth addition to your Miller collection. There are no Sax doubles. Learn More
  • When Johnny Comes Marching Home

    This patriotic wartime tune was originally done by Glenn Miller with Tex Beneke & Marion Hutton & the Modernaires supplying the vocals.  We have scored the chart for Male & Female vocalist with a 4-piece backing group, though the arrangement works well as a boy girl duet or as a solo vocal. The Tenor sax line  is scored back in, thereby keeping your section complete. This chart is true to the Bill Finegan original, & there are no sax doubles. Trumpets 2,3,&4 need to be able to reach high C for the unison passage before the Tenor solo in the last chorus. Learn More
  • When The Saints

    Many big bands have recorded versions of The Saints, yet this one really stands out from the crowd. Whilst not strictly a BG chart, as it was recorded by members of the Goodman Orchestra, it contains some fine ensemble writing, a flowing Clarinet solo in BG syle & solos for Piano & Tenor too.  The saxes are scored for CATTB, & we have included an alternate Alto 2 part (a transposition of Tenor 2). Trombones 1, 2 & 3 are written to high C during a passing riff near the end of the chart. Two of them can happily drop an octave here if they don't have the range. No sax doubles. Learn More
