  • Cherokee

    Cherokee was the first big hit for Charlie Barnet & his Orchestra, though when Billy May arrived for the 1939 recording session & handed out the parts nobody seemed that impressed with it! This is a good Tenor feature, & a straight forward chart to play. The arrangement is full of interest. Glissing Trombones, Trumpets with wah-wah plungers, & some rich voicings in the Saxes & ensemble sections. This chart is the one that set the standard for all subsequent arrangements of this Ray Noble chart. There are no sax doubles. Learn More
  • Skyliner

    Arguably the most famous number of the Charlie Barnet Orchestra, Skyliner is a really punchy, up-tempo swinger featuring a Piano intro, unison brass carrying the melodic line, with clarinet-led Saxes over the top & later on a cracking Trombone soli. Both tenor sax parts are scored with the solo chords & the cameo trumpet solo can be taken by lead or second. Much requested, we're pleased to make it available. Learn More
