  • Boogie Blues

    A hit for Anita O'Day during her second spell with the Gene Krupa Orchestra, this chart is taken from the album 'Let Me Off Uptown' on Columbia/Legacy (CK 65625). The opening Boogie, followed by an Alto solo (written) leads in to the vocal chorus. There's just a muted trumpet & the rhythm section backing the singer. The band comes back with the boogie & into a big shout chorus to finish. Baritone sax on Alto throughout. Alto & Trumpet solos written out. Learn More
  • I Love You

    Though quite short, the chart is an up-tempo, hard hitting swinger which needs a strong singer to carry it off. After the intro and first vocal chorus there is an 8 measure instrumental passage and an 8 measure Alto solo (written out, with chords) before the vocals return for a half chorus to close out the chart. The original chart was scored in the key of A, so we have printed the chart double-sided with the original on one side and a version in Ab (for ease of playing) on the reverse. The ranges above refer to the A version. There are no sax doubles. Learn More
  • Just a Little Bit South of North Carolina

    A bouncy vocal from Anita O'Day & the Gene Krupa band, with an unreasonably long title! This chart was one of the most requested of O'Day's repertoire, & we have faithfully recreated it for you here, complete with the opening Guitar solo (cued onto the piano part) & Roy Eldridge's cameo Trumpet solos & the little Clarinet solo (on 1st Alto) near the end. The ranges are very moderate & the chart is not over complicated. All dynamics & articulations are clearly marked, enabling your band to perform the arrangement with confidence. A good chart for concert work or dancing. Learn More
  • Opus One

    A classic from the pen of Sy Oliver, this is the vocal version that Anita 0'Day recorded with Gene Krupa, & is a mix of powerhouse swing that you would expect from Krupa's band, & a laid back, slightly humerous vocal chorus from 0'Day. It features a blasting Trumpet solo near the end, & a wonderfully conceived modulation into the vocal chorus. We have written out the Trumpet solo, & the little Piano fill-in solo in the intro too. The Trumpet solo screams up to a high E, & 1st & 2nd Trombones have to pick a top D out of the air at one point.  There are no sax doubles. Learn More
  • Stop! The Red Light's On

    Another well known up-tempo swing chart from Anita O'Day & the Gene Krupa Orchestra. The arrangement (transcribed from the Elton Hill original) not only features your vocalist & your band shouting 'Stop!', but also your Trumpet 2. This is a fine swinger from the height of the Krupa band.  Duration 3'20". Learn More
