  • Apple Blossom Time

    ANDREW SISTERS BIG BAND GIRL VOCAL CHART. This arrangement of the Andrews Sisters version of Apple Blossom Time shows a more sentimental side of the trio's repertoire. Unusually, the chart is only scored for 3 voices, 4 Trombones & 4 Rhythm. There are no parts for Trumpets or Saxes, so it can be used as a showcase for your bone-section & singers. Faithfully transcribed by Alan Glasscock by referencing a number of recordings that the Sisters made, in order to achieve complete authenticity & accuracy. This number will sit well in any set, particularly as a late-night closer. Learn More
  • Beat Me Daddy Eight to the Bar

    ANDREW SISTERS BIG BAND GIRL VOCAL CHART. This arrangement of Apple Blossom Time shows a more sentimental side of the trio's repertoire. Unusually, the chart is only scored for 3 voices, 4 Trombones & 4 Rhythm. There are no parts for Trumpets or Saxes, so it can be used as a showcase for your bone-section & singers. Faithfully transcribed by Alan Glasscock by referencing a number of recordings that the Sisters made, in order to achieve complete authenticity & accuracy. This number will sit well in any set, particularly as a late-night closer.The Andrew Sisters had enormous success with Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, & this chart has the same infectious eight beat boogie woogie feel. We have scored the vocals for SSA female trio, & have also included a solo vocal sheet, making the arrangement singable with only one vocalist. We have augmented the original studio version up to full big band. The brass ranges are very moderate, with the lead Trumpet only reaching A. The piano part is fully written out, though your player can improvise a boogie woogie line if preferred. There are no sax doubles. Learn More
  • Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen

    ANDREW SISTERS BIG BAND GIRL VOCAL CHART. The vocal lines are written out "as sung", and the Trumpet solo is written out in full too. Alto 1 is on Clarinet throughout, with Alto 2 and both Tenors doubling Clarinet up to the Trumpet solo. Duration: 3'10".   Learn More
  • Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy

    ANDREW SISTERS BIG BAND GIRL VOCAL CHART. The Andrews Sisters produced a huge number of hits, & Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy is one of their finest. Alan Glasscock has scored a cracking version here, & has notated the Vocal Trio parts with exceptional skill. There were a couple of key versions of this song. One was the Decca release & the other done for the movie Buck Pirates. The Decca chart used a small backing band, the movie a full big band. Our version fuses the two & takes the best from both. Although this is a Vocal Trio, we have also included a Solo Vocal part. Learn More
  • Don't Fence Me In

    ANDREW SISTERS BIG BAND GIRL VOCAL CHART. This arrangement of Don't Fence Me In is the version recorded by Bing Crosby with the Andrews Sisters in 1944. We have faithfully reproduced this chart, even down to the level of correctly detailing the crossing vocal lines sung by Maxene and Patty. Bing's part is written out "as sung" too. We have included the Piano fills and the rolling Piano and Bass lines that accompany the vocal trio in the second chorus. Saxes are scored for CATTB and the vocal key is Eb throughout. Learn More
  • Don't Sit Under the Apple Tree

    This was another of the Andrews Sisters big hits and sold very well, despite the success that the Glenn Miller band achieved with the same tune. The chart opens with a half tempo verse and picks up into fast swing for the first vocal chorus to the end of the piece. We have written the original vocal lines 'as-sung' by the Andrews Sisters, and adapted the band backings to bring it up to full big band sections. Lead Alto doubles Clarinet in the opening verse, and there are no other sax doubles. The vocal key is Eb. Learn More
  • Hold Tight

    ANDREW SISTERS BIG BAND GIRL VOCAL CHART. The Andrews Sisters recorded this chart with the Jimmy Dorsey orchestra. Scored for 8 Brass & 5 Saxes rather than the original 5+Clarinet (the Clarinet solo lines are now on Alto 2). The interweaving vocal lines are scored in full. Alto 2 doubles Clarinet. Learn More
  • Oh Johnny oh Johnny Oh!

    Oh Johnny! was another early hit for the Andrews Sisters & we have reproduced it here. We have adapted the chart by expanding it to full big band form, up from the smaller band which was used to back the sisters. We have also written our chart in the key of C, rather than the key of B which some recordings imply. The reeds are scored CAATB, though we have included an extra Tenor part - a transposition of Alto 2 - making the reeds CATTB to give flexibility in your sax section The vocal parts are written in for SSA voices & are "as sung" by the Andrews Sisters.

  • Rum And Coca Cola

    Rum & Coca Cola is an enduring hit for the Andrews Sisters, sung against a Calypso rhythm apart from the last 5 measures which move into Swing temp. All three vocal parts are written to intertwine in true Andrews Sisters style. The chart is scored for SSA Vocal, Piano, Bass, Guitar, Drums, Maracas & 4 Trumpets only. The solo Trumpet line is written on the 1st part, but cross-cued on the other 3 trumpet parts, so you can share the solos around the section if needed. Learn More
