  • AGUAS DE MARCO [WATERS OF MARCH]

    STUDIO ORCHESTRA. In 2001 a poll of more than 200 Brazilian journalists, musicians and other artists was conducted by a leading Brazilian daily newspaper, Folha de São Paulo. Águas de Março was named as the all-time best Brazilian song in this poll. The song first appeared in 1972 on the self-titled record Jobim. Ogerman's instrumentation features 4 various types of flutes, along with violins, cello, guitar, piano, bass, and drums. Ogerman specifies 12 violins and 5 celli and provided exact divisi instructions (which we have included). In addition, all flutes are on bass flute for 4 measures only. We have retained this but have included alternate alto flute parts in the event that bass flutes aren't available. Lastly, we have included both the original Portuguese lyrics as well as the English lyrics. Learn More

  • All Of Me

    This version is a transcription of Basie's perfomance from the "Sinatra at the Sands" album and it differs slightly from the great Billy Byers studio version of the chart. The chart must be taken at a laid-back pace and your band needs to observe the written dynamics and articulations in order to achive the right feel. Learn More

  • Anthropology

    Anthropology was written by Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie. Evans arranged the line in 1947, and it was recorded for Columbia Records and for radio transcriptions. The instrumentation calls for 5 saxophones doubling clarinet, 3 trumpets, 2 trombones, 2 French horns, tuba, guitar, piano, bass, and drums. For this publication, the French horn and tuba parts alternately may be played by a 4th trumpet and trombones 3 and 4 as follows: Learn More

Please note: this item will be printed at the time of ordering and will ship as soon as possible. Learn More
  • Anvil Chorus

    Originally from Verdi's Il Trovatore, Anvil Chorus was a big hit for the Glenn Miller band, thanks to the fabulous arrangement by Gerry Gray. We have faithfully restored the original version here, complete with fully written out solos for Tenor & Trumpet. The Saxes are voiced AAATT throughout, as per the original & all dynamics are clearly marked. This chart is great in performance, & at 240 bpm you will need precision & nimble fingers to pull it off. Learn More
  • Anything Goes

    This arrangement of Anything goes is scored as a female vocal, very much in the style of Ella Fitzgerald. The intro features the rarely heard verse before moving into swing tempo at a medium 120 beats per minute, with muted brass backing the first vocal chorus. The second chorus is led by the saxes, followed by a full ensemble leading to the vocal return for the middle eight to the end of the chorus, with a brief ensemble shout to finish. The saxes are scored to double Flute, Clarinets and Bass Clarinet for the intro, though all parts have cues for saxes which allows the chart to be played by a regular AATTB section with no doubles. Brass ranges are very moderate, with lead Trumpet to a written A and lead Trombone to G. The vocal key is Gm / G major. Learn More
  • At Sundown

    This is Artie Shaw's 1939 version of At Sundown, from the time when his first band was arguably at its height. The arrangement has been adapted from the original 3 Trumpet 3 Trombone line-up, to a regular 4 4 brass section, & the Reeds are scored for Clarinet, 2 Altos & 2 Tenors. We have written out Shaw's Clarinet solo in full along with the Tenor & Trumpet solos, but have left the Piano solo as an improvisation. All the soloists have the chords on their parts should they wish to do their own thing.  There are no Sax doubles. Learn More
  • Attitude Dance

    Celebrating more than 40 years of Funk and Soul, the unmistakable sound of Tower of Power still sounds as fresh and impressive as ever.This hot tune features blazing Horn lines and driving groove of the original. Learn More
  • Avenue C

    Here is Avenue C in all its glory. A rousing flat-out swing chart. This chart powers from start to finish & is great for both concert work & swing dancing. We have faithfully transcribed all of the instrumental solos (2 tenors, trumpet, trombone & piano), & have included all phrsing marks, articulations & dynamics. This is a truly rare chart from the Basie band at the height of its power. There are no sax doubles. Learn More
  • B-19

    B-19 is a driving swing number, clearly taking some influences from tunes such as Sing Sing Sing & Bizet Has His Day & the chart has a raw & angry feel about it, as one might expect from a tune whose name is that of a famous aircraft. Being a Harry James chart there is naturally a big solo spot for Trumpent (HJ's chorus is fully written out on the 2nd Trumpet part) & we have transcribed the Tenor solo too. The original was recorded by HJ with a string section. However, we have modified the arrangement & written the strings back into the Saxes & given a solo spot to 1st Trombone. Learn More
  • Basie X. P.

    Basie X.P. is an up tempo original from Jon Harpin in true Basie style. Great ensemble scoring coupled with written out Basie style solo for piano. The main  focus of the chart is an extended solo for your Tenor player, conceived as a "romp" a la "Lock Jaw Davis"  in "Whirlybird", & can be as long as desired. The brass ranges are not very demanding, making the chart very playable. Learn More
  • Basie's Blues in C

    A superb original composition from Jon Harpin, featuring your Pianist & Trombone. Basie's Blues is a really laid-back number, but with plenty to interest all your players & any audience. This chart, whilst a tribute to the Count, is scored & voiced in a contemporary way, making it sound rich & full-bodied. It is also around 6 minutes long, so is great value. There is a long Sax passage that will need rehearsal, to get the phrasing & feel right. Learn More
  • Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea

    This tune was recorded by Ella for her Harold Arlen songbook album, with the original arrangement scored by Billy May. We have adapted the chart to a full 5444 line-up (from the original 5114) though have kept the feel and flavor true to the original. Billy May chose an innovative set of chord changes for his chart which are significantly different from Harold Arlen's concept. The result is that the chart is cool yet progressive and, whilst the band notes are easy, it will need to be sung very confidently, as the vocal line doesn't immediately sit very naturally against the band backings. It will require a bit of practice. We have written Ella's vocal line "as sung", including the scat passage towards the close of the chart. The vocal key is Bb throughout, and there are no sax doubles. The original Vibe solo is replaced by Piano ad-lib. Learn More
  • Birmingham Bounce

    Birmingham Bounce is a postwar chart from the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, featuring the singing & fiery Trumpet of Charlie Shavers. This is a very good dance chart & has a lot of nice features in the arrangement - Vocal stops, hand claps, powerful ensemble passages, a solo spot for Tenor & some screaming Trumpet licks too. As the name suggests, this chart really bounces along.  The Trumpet soloist has a written high F & the Trombones need to reach Bb. The key is Eb and would suit a high Baritone or an Alto. Learn More
  • Brilliant Corners

    This arrangement is not complex and can be easily prepared for concerts and competitions. They can be opened up for any and all soloists, not just piano, trumpet and tenor sax. We have chosen to leave the instrumentation the way Nelson had it (4 reeds, 3 trumpets, 3 trombones, guitar, piano, bass, drums); no optional parts have been added. Learn More
  • BUSTER'S LAST STAND

    Buster's Last Stand is one of the few fast swing pieces that the Thornhill band played. They recorded it for Columbia Records in 1942 shortly before a ban on recording was imposed by the music union, and it remained in the book when the Thornhill ensemble was re-formed in 1946. We have included optional 4th trumpet and 3rd trombone parts that are alternates for the two horn in F parts. But, you should only use them if you don"t have the horn players available. Both alto saxophones double clarinet. And, the 6th reed is an optional clarinet part. Learn More
  • Call Me Irresponsible

    A Michael Buble Big Band Chart. The relaxed swinging title track from Michael Buble's album of the same name, transcribed by Cy Payne. A classic Sammy Cahn and Jimmy van Heusen number. Learn More
