  • April In Paris

    This version of April in Paris has been lovingly assembled from a number of recordings done by the Basie band of this fabulous Wild Bill Davis chart, and has a richer, lusher, more authentic feel than previous / current offerings published by other companies. We have taken down the Henderson Chambers' Trombone solo (on Bass Bone, but cross cued on the other parts), and the stunning Phil Guilbeau Trumpet solo (written out), both from Basie's Sept.1965 London concert. The Trumpet solo in particular is in a different league to Basie's early "pop goes the weasel" version, though your player can improvise from the chords provied too. We have included the "one moe time" ending too, should you wish to tease the crowds. This chart will not disappoint. Learn More
  • April in Paris

    Made famous by the Count Basie Orchestra, here is a great-sounding, yet playable version of this standard for developing bands. Including feature spots for every section and optional solos for trumpet and trombone, Rick does a nice job of maintaining an authentic sound even in this easy version. Enjoy great flexibility with the Easy Jazz Ensemble series! Playable with 4 saxes, 3 trumpets, 3 trombones and rhythm; includes optional parts for flute, clarinet, F horn and tuba. Learn More
  • April in Paris

    One of the great standards in a very playable vocal arrangement. A full band intro gives an excellent lead in for the vocalist. There are plenty of backings/fills throughout and an instrumental section with ideas from the well known Count Basie version. Instrumentation:  5 saxes (AATTB), 4 trumpets, 4 trombones, 3 Bb clar. 3 flutes, horn in F, 4 rhythm. Learn More
  • ARAB DANCE

    This has been published directly from the original manuscript, edited by Jeffrey Sultanof. This master edition comes with complete background and performance notes. This concert arrangement is scored for 7 reeds, 3 trumpets, 2 French horns, 2 trombones, guitar, piano, bass, and drums. See below for complete instrumentation including information on reed doubling. The two French horns have been scored into trumpet 4 and trombone 3 parts, so this piece may be played without them. Approximately 4:30 in length. Learn More
  • Artistry in Rhythm

    Composed and recorded by Stan Kenton in the 1940s, Artistry in Rhythm became his signature and a true classic from the big band era. Paul Murtha has skillfully adapted and truncated this chart for younger players while maintaining the flavor and energy of the original. Solo piano starts things off, followed by the iconic trombone solo in the medium Latin section. The exciting double-time swing section features the entire ensemble, then the “maestoso” theme returns to close things out. Impressive! Learn More
  • As Time Goes By

    Here is Tony Bennett's great version of As Time Goes By. The chart opens with the rarely heard verse, colla voce, backed by the Piano, (though you can start the chart at the chorus if you prefer) and moves smoothly into the swing choruses, with some great band backings that never intrude in the singers' space. There's not much more to say really, other than the tune is always popular, instantly recognisable, and makes a really good late night slow dance chart. the brass ranges are moderate, apart from a high D in the Trumpet 1 / 2 parts (Trumpet 2 can drop this down an octave if needs be). The vocal key is C throughout, and there are no sax doubles. Learn More
  • As Time Goes By

    This is one of our specially written charts for student/amateur swing bands.  In addition to the usual 8 Brass and 5 Saxes we have included optional Flutes, Clarinets and a Horn in F.  Very safe brass ranges are adopted throughout. This all time favourite ballad, featured in the 1942 film Casablanca, deserves to be included in every band's library.  It has a very comfortable vocal range.  After a full ensemble introduction the first vocal chorus has muted trumpet fills and very playable background figures from the rest of the band.  An instrumental half chorus is included. Learn More
  • At Last

    The Miller band had several version of this chart, & ours is drawn from the version in the film 'Orchestra Wives'. Whilst it is not the complete film version, with both male & female vocal, it has the same dramatic opening with Billy May's trumpet solo then into the Sax soli, followed by a Trombone soli in even time, accompanied by Piano obligato. Then follows the modulation into the vocal chorus (in the key of A) & final band flourish. There is no audio file here, but for those of you who know the film, the above description should tell you all you need to know!! Lead Alto in on Clarinet throughout, & Baritone doubles Alto. 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

  • 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
