  • Westside

    Phil Collins Big Band Chart. A real ‘blow the cobwebs away’ challenging power rock arrangement by David Stout - making maximum use of the full dynamic range of the contemporary big band - with scintillating brass writing. NOTE: The sample MP3 is a live recording of our actual published chart. Learn More
  • When It's Sleepy Time Down South

    Here is our transcription of the Bobby Pratt version of Sleepy Time Down South, as performed with the Ted Heath band. Bobby was a gifted trumpeter & a great high note player.  This chart is a Trumpet feature from start to finish & will need a fine player to make it work. Pratt's solo uses the full range of the instrument.. The last 12 measures of solo part reach super A, though can be played down an octave, the results are not the same. Other than the solo the brass ranges are moderate, with lead Trumpet to top D & lead Trombone to B. Alto's 1&2 double Clarinets no other sax doubles. Learn More
  • Willow Weep For Me

    BIG BAND. One of the all time great standards. After a solo piano introduction the lyrical melody played by the 1st tenor sax is combined with an underlying 6/4 jazz swing backing from the rhythm section, with the full band joining on the second chorus. Open 12-bar sequence has written solos for flute and trombone before the brass and saxes return, building to a driving ff ending. Top note high C for lead trumpet. Key B flat. Learn More
  • Without A Song

    This arrangement features a lengthy solo for a tenor saxophone soloist. Included are open solo sections so that any number of soloists may be featured. In addition, while there was no guitarist used during the recording sessions, we have included a guitar part as Joe had done in his arrangements. These arrangements will require significant time to work them up, but they would be a amazing for any competition or festival! Learn More
  • Woodchopper's Ball

    Here is the great Woodchoppers Ball. Co-written & first performed by Woody Herman, this chart became a mainstay in the repertoire of all Herman's bands. This version is based on Woody's, though rescored for regular sections (Saxes AATTB, 8 brass).This arrangement features solo space for Clarinet (on 1st Alto part), Tenor, Trumpet & Trombone & has that characteristic chromatic set of key changes at the end that gives the whole chart a thumping climax. A superb swing chart. Learn More
  • YARDBIRD SUITE

    In 1941 Gil Evans went to New York to write for the Claude Thornhill orchestra, which won two successive Billboard polls in the "sweet band" category. Evans, who was a fan of bebop and modern classical music was the first jazz composer/arranger to combine elements of both into his groundbreaking arrangements. This arrangement of Charlie Parker's Yardbird Suite (known at the time as 'What Price Love') is stunning. Evans employs dissonance throughout (often through minor seconds within sections) as well as subtle color and timbre shifts. Arranging for this same Thornhill band was Gerry Mulligan with whom Gil Evans would later break away and form the famous Miles Davis Nonet and record 'The Birth of the Cool.' This arrangement helped establish Gil Evans as a trend-setting, modern jazz composer. This arrangement has been published from the original autograph score and is authorized by the Estate of Gil Evans. This is not a transcription. Learn More

    Thanks to an agreement with Oliver Nelson, Jr., this track and six other classic compositions are now available, edited using Nelson's original manuscripts. Nelson now joins the legendary names whose music is now available. With the lone exception of Teenie"s Blues, all are arranged for alto, tenor, and baritone saxophones, trumpet, piano, bass, and drums. Teenie"s Blues was originally arranged for only 2 altos, piano, bass, and drums. We have included parts for tenor, baritone, and trumpet. Learn More
