  • Li'l Darlin

    Li'l Darlin' is one of the great tracks from the Basie band of the 1950's & one of a series written & arranged for the band by Neal Hefti to be found on The Atomic Mr Basie album. This is the original arrangement & not a transcription, & includes fully written out muted 4th Trumpet solo. There is not a full score with this arrangement, though a Conductor lead sheet is included. Listen using the link below Learn More
  • 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
  • Lonesome Nights

    Here is the 1933 Benny Carter classic slightly re-composed for the American Jazz Orchestra in 1986. This has the famous 1933 saxophone soli, taken directly from the parts that remained in Benny's library. As Benny continued to perform and teach over the years, he adapted his arrangements to fit a full big band of 8 brass. However, he never modified this arrangement. So, this publication remains true to the instrumentation of his early recording (5 reeds, 3 trumpets, 3 trombones, guitar, piano, bass, and drums). There are 8-bar solos for trumpet and piano and an open solo for alto saxophone that may be opened up to feature any number of soloists. Other than the saxophone soli, this arrangement is easy to play. If you're looking for a great concert or festival piece to feature your saxophone section, here it is! Learn More
  • Manteca

    This famous arrangement was written by Gil Fuller and recorded at one of the last sessions Dizzy Gillespie made for RCA Victor in 1947, before another recording ban took place during most of 1948. Manteca was co-written by Dizzy Gillespie and Chano Pozo in 1947 and became one of the first examples of Afro-Cuban influences being incorporated into jazz. In 1949 J.J. Robbins & Sons published a stock arrangement of this tune that was nearly identical to the arrangement from Dizzy's book. The only major difference was that the published version was for 3 trombones instead of 4. We have re-created the 4th trombone part. Learn More
  • Melancholy Lullaby

    Written in 1939 by Benny Carter and became his theme song. In the 1970s Benny revised his 1939 arrangement so that it featured a solo alto saxophonist along with a full big band. This is a very beautiful, late-night, show closer ballad. Brass are on cup mutes throughout. This arrangement was never recorded by Benny. Learn More
  • Millennium

    from his 1998 album I've Been Expecting You. In September 1998, it was released as the album's first track which became Williams' first single to top the UK Singles Chart. The song also received extensive airplay in the United States and Canada, where it was the lead single from Williams' 1999 compilation album, The Ego Has Landed. The song borrows heavily from the musical arrangement of John Barry's "You Only Live Twice". Learn More

  • Music Makers

    This Harry James chart is at heart a Trumpet sectional feature though not at the difficulty level of say Trumpet Blues & Cantabile. The Tenor solo is written in full & is best played as originally written. The lead trumpet is written to a high F in the closing run, but the line can be taken down an octave without detracting from the finish, which then makes the required lead range a top Eb. Learn More
  • My Guy's Come Back

    My Guy's Come Back is the Mel Powell arrangement for the Miller USAAF band. It is at heart a Piano feature based around an often recurring riff that is shared around the sections. There are improvised solos for Trumpet 2 & Piano, with fill-in solos for Drums too. At a steady 140 tempo, this chart makes for good dancing. The reeds are scored AATTB; all reed players double Clarinet, though the Baritone/Clarinet line is an octave lower double of the lead line, so if your Baritone player doesn't play Clarinet he will not be missed too much. Learn More
  • Nessun Dorma

    A full concert band instrumental setting for this Pucini Classic. Learn More
  • Night And Day

    The original arrangement being penned by Jerry Gray. We have adapted the original up to 8 Brass & have written out all of the original solos in full - Shaw's playful Clarinet, Tony Pastor's Tenor & the Trumpet solo (probably Tom DeCarlo). The Reeds are scored for Clarinet, 2 Altos & 2 Tenors & the Saxes all double Clarinet. Learn More
  • On A Misty Night

    Tadd Dameron wrote this arrangement for Benny Goodman in 1962 for his tour of Russia (it wasn't recorded). He based it on the arrangement that he had recently written for his Magic Touch record. This arrangement is very close to the one from the Magic Touch album. The main difference is that for this arrangement he added a clarinet part (a solo part for Goodman), which was just the tenor saxophone part from his earlier arrangement. We have restored the tenor feature and removed the clarinet part so that it resembles the arrangement that was recorded on the Magic Touch album. This may be played by a standard big band of 5/4/3/4. The sound sample has been provided courtesy of the Manhattan School of Music's Concert Jazz Band, conducted by Justin DiCioccio. Learn More

    This arrangement by Gil Fuller was written to showcase Ray Brown, the bassist of the Dizzy Gillespie Big Band. Gillespie's big band performed this arrangement many times over the years. In 1949 J.J. Robbins & Sons published a stock arrangement of this tune that was nearly identical to the arrangement from Dizzy's book. The only major difference was that the published version was for 3 trumpets instead of 4. We have restored the 4th trumpet part. The bass fills have not been written out, allowing for your bassist to improvise over the provided chord changes. Learn More
  • One for Duke

    This arrangement by Oliver Nelson was part of the Jazzhattan Suite and recorded by the Jazz Interactions Orchestra in 1967, an ensemble led by pianist Billy Taylor. This arrangement features solos for piano, clarinet and trumpet as well as an optional open solo section. Learn More
  • One Mint Julep

    Here is a grooving latin version from the Xavier Cugat band which features Piano/Keyboard on rock organ. The original organ solo is written out, but your player is free to improvise. The feel is even beat latin but works equally well with a rock/funk feel. If you find it hard to dance to swing charts, this one will get them all on the floor. Learn More
  • Our Delight

    Dameron arranged Our Delight for the Billy Eckstine Orchestra, and when that ensemble folded, Dizzy Gillespie added the setting to his book, playing it frequently. This version of Our Delight is the same as the arrangement Dameron wrote for The Magic Touch LP, only re-scored for traditional big band with some modifications. All of the BVC publications had numerous errors in pitch, rhythm and transposition. This publication has been newly edited and corrected. One such error occurs at Letter E; on the Riverside recording, French horn virtuoso Julius Watkins played the solo; in the original BVC publication, no solo was indicated. I have corrected this so that the solo is now played by Trombone 1. The sound sample has been provided courtesy of the Manhattan School of Music's Concert Jazz Band, conducted by Justin DiCioccio. Learn More
  • Paganini Caprice XXIV

    A big swinging chart for the Benny Goodman Orchestra. We have adapted & expanded the chart, scoring it for a regular AATTB Sax team & 8 Brass. Your Alto 2 player doubles Clarinet, & has the entire Benny Goodman solo, written out in full. Tenor 1 takes the Vido Musso solo, & the Mel Powell piano solo is also fully scored. This is a fine addition to any library. Learn More
