  • A Foggy Day

    This swinging studio orchestra arrangement was written by Billy Byers in May of 1970 for a concert that Sinatra gave at Royal Festival Hall in November of that same year. This is classic Sinatra/Byers - swinging reed figures and punchy brass with string support. We have included a synth part that may be used in the event that your ensemble doesn't have access to string players. This is not a difficult arrangement (except for the brass ranges) and would be fairly easy to work up for a concert. Also, we have included the vocal line as written by Byers. Key of D flat.

  • Anything Goes

    Here's Nelson Riddle's famous arrangement from Frank Sinatra's classic record 'Song for Swingin' Lovers,' recorded in 1956. The arrangement opens with the guitar playing a little syncopated figure and alto 1 on flute. Trombones are on cup mutes for the vocal entrance. Unlike other Riddle/Sinatra charts from this period, there isn't any instrumental section in this arrangement - there are vocals throughout. This isn't really that difficult of an arrangement, but just a really great showcase for your male vocalist. Alto 1 doubles on flute. Learn More
  • Blue Moon

    This swinging Nelson Riddle arrangement comes from Frank Sinatra's "Swingin' Session and More" record. In typical Riddle fashion, the chart begins with a memorable introduction and then the vocals enter with great rhythmic figures in the sax section and a familiar baritone sax line. Then the brass enter for the second A section and the chart really gets going. There is a tenor sax solo (over the first two A sections) that has been written out in full. The chord changes have been included as well in the event that your player wants to improvise instead. There are no sax doubles. Learn More
  • Brazil

    BIG BAND VOCAL. From the Frank Sinatra/Billy May all time classic album 'Come Fly With Me', transcribed by Cy Payne and in the original recorded key. A mid tempo swing chart with the crisp and careful writing for the brass, typical of Billy May recordings. Learn More
  • Come Back To Me

    This is a fantastic (and difficult) Billy May arrangement from the Sinatra/Ellington album, recorded in 1967. This up-tempo swing chart (quarter note = 300!) features solos for clarinet and tenor sax. Trumpeter Cat Anderson's range was well-known to all. As a result, May writes optional notes for him that go to F7! And, Cat plays them! Of course, we realize that 99.99% of trumpet players can't reach these notes, but they are indicated nonetheless for those who want to try. Jazz Lines Publications is very proud to publish these arrangements with the support of Frank Sinatra Enterprises LLC. Finally the music of a truly landmark and historic recording session is available to the public. This has been published from the original parts used for the recording session. Learn More
  • Don't Worry 'bout Me

    This great arrangement of the Rube Bloom classic comes from the pen of Quincy Jones and was featured on the Frank Sinatra collaboration with the Count Basie Orchestra "Sinatra at the Sands". This has been transcribed from the original recording. This slow swing treatment features some light harmon trumpet fills behind the vocals (written for trumpet 3). Learn More

  • Get Me To The Church Ontime

    Billy Byers was commissioned by Quincy Jones in June of 1965 to write this arrangement for an upcoming tour Frank Sinatra was doing with the Count Basie Orchestra. It was written as an opener and originally included a 10-bar opening sequence that led to a vamp. The opening sequence was only played on one occasion, the June 20, 1965 appearance at the Kiel Opera House in St. Louis, and then was cut. For subsequent performances the arrangement was started at the vamp. We have included the original intro in this publication. In addition, there were a few cuts in the arrangement - we have included all the original music and have indicated what was cut so that you have the choice in what you wish to include for your performance. This has been published from the original score and has been authorized by Frank Sinatra Enterprises, LLC. Learn More
  • Goody Goody

    This 1936 tune represents some of the best of jazzy American pop. Due to its catchy melodic hook, this song has remained a jazz standard and has been interpreted in many styles. For Frank Sinatra's 1962 album "Sinatra and Swingin' Brass" Neal Hefti put together a steamrolling, brisk rendition to play off the song's melodic structure. This arrangement works so well against the melody beginning with a repeated rock-type melodic figure in the reeds. From the first measure you know you're in for a ride. There are no doubles. Learn More
  • How About You?

    In 1955/56 Frank Sinatra went into the Capitol Studio with Nelson Riddle and recorded one of the best and most famous albums of all time:"Songs for Swingin' Lovers". We are proud to offer the closing track of that disc.This classic version  is a particularly famous arrangement crafted by the brilliant  Nelson Riddle to suit a big band vocal lineup. There are no sax doubles. Learn More
  • I Get A Kick Out Of You

    From Sinatra's 1962 Reprise recording, I Get A Kick Out of You has become a Sinatra classic and a much requested tune. Original arrangement by Neal Hefti and his style is clearly apparent. Jon Harpin has produced a superb recreation of the original. Sinatra's vocal line is written out. The chart is technicaly not that difficult, but needs crispness and precision to make it come alive. the Trombones are scored for 3 Tenors and Bass. No Sax doubles. Duration 3:20. Learn More
  • I Like Sunrise

    Here is another great Billy May arrangement from the Sinatra/Ellington album, recorded in 1967. This ballad chart features written solos for trumpet (on cup mute and plunger) and trombone. Jazz Lines Publications is very proud to publish these tunes, making the music of a truly landmark and historic recording session available to the public for the first time. This has been engraved from the original parts: this is not a transcription. Learn More
  • I Only Have Eyes For You

    Transcribed by Jon Harpin from the Neal Hefti chart written for the Sinatra Basie album. The arrangement is taken at an easy, laid-back tempo, & is full of rich tonal colour & shade which is the trademark of Hefti. The opening is scored for Flute doubles by the Altos, though the lines are also scored in the Tenors in case your Altos don't play Flutes. Sinatra's vocal is written as permormed. Learn More
  • I Won't Dance

    This is a vintage Neal Hefti arrangement from the 1962 Frank Sinatra and Count Basie collaboration "Sinatra-Basie". Mellow, but swinging lines and enough space to afford the vocalist some freedom of interpretation. The arrangement calls for alto 1 to double flute. An alternate alto 1 is included that avoids this in the event that you don't have a flutist available. The chart features a couple of short tenor sax solos, which have been written out. Learn More
  • If I Had You

    This creamy version of If I Had You is taken from "A Swingin' Affair", Sinatra's 12th studio album, conducted and arranged by Nelson Riddle. We have transcribed and adapted this chart to remove the original string lines and re-integrate them into the band. Alto 1 doubles Clarinet, and it is the Clarinet-led reeds that take the pick-up into, and first 8 measures of the instrumental half-chorus in the middle of the chart. The trombones take a 4 measure soli after the saxes, and their range is quite high, with the lead Trombone to high C and second to A. We have reproduced the feel and flavor of the original Riddle chart and have even included the muted Trumpet fill and the little drum licks and fills that add punch in just the right places. The vocal line as written "as sung" by Sinatra. The vocal key is Ab throughout. Learn More
  • It Happened in Monterey

    Late in 1955 and early i1956 Frank Sinatra went into the Capitol Studio with Nelson Riddle and recorded one of the best and most famous albums of all-time:"Songs For Swingin' Lovers". From the opening straight-eight melody to the triplets tossed between sections, this chart is instantly recognisable. This has been adapted to suit a big band lineup. Learn More
  • Just One Of Those Things

    A feature of this chart are some of the deliberate dissonances between reeds and brass in the opening intro and modulation passage of the chart. Your band might need to play them a couple of times to get used to them. The chart itself has many Riddle trademarks, from well voiced punchy brass to skilfully harmonised reeds, and it shows the beginnings of what were to become Riddle hallmarks in later arrangements. Aside from a Tenor noodling behind the vocal there are no band solos and the vocal key is D, modulating to Eb. Learn More
  • Lady Is A Tramp, The

    A transcription of the Billy Byers chart as performed by Frank Sinatra backed by Woody Herman at Madison Square Gardens in 1974.  The opening is hinderingly brassy and establishes a great contrast to the quite start of the vocal. The first vocal chorus builds in intensity to the half-step modulation. From here the arrangement powers its way to the finish line, & swings like crazy all the way. This is classic Sinatra. Learn More
  • Love Walked In

    Arranged by Billy May and was featured in Sinatra's 1961 recording titled "Swing Along With Me". It begins quietly with just vocals, rhythm section and bass trombone. Trumpets and the sax section follow (altos are on flutes and tenors are on clarinets briefly - alternate parts that do not require doubles are included). The arrangement features 2 great shout sections. Learn More
