  • 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.

  • A Kiss From You

    This enchanting melody originated in a score Carter wrote for television's 'Chrysler Theater' in 1963. It was known as 'Lydia' until Johnny Mercer added a lyric. At a 1973 concert at Princeton University Carter offered the big band version which was recorded in 1986 by the American Jazz Orchestra. Learn More
  • A Shade Of Jade

    This arrangement features a lengthy solo for a tenor saxophone soloist. Included are open solo sections so that any number of soloists may be featured. In addition, while there was no guitarist used during the recording sessions, we have included a guitar part as Joe had done in his arrangements. These arrangements will require significant time to work them up, but they would be a amazing for any competition or festival! This has been edited and egraved directly from Joe's original scores and parts - this is not a transcription. Learn More
  • Afrodisia

    This Kenny Dorham Latin arrangement was recorded in 1955 on Afro/Cuban (Blue Note). This is fully arranged with great backgrounds during the solos. Contents Full Score Trumpet Tenor Saxophone Trombone Baritone Saxophone Piano Bass Drums Learn More
  • AGUAS DE MARCO [WATERS OF MARCH]

    STUDIO ORCHESTRA. In 2001 a poll of more than 200 Brazilian journalists, musicians and other artists was conducted by a leading Brazilian daily newspaper, Folha de São Paulo. Águas de Março was named as the all-time best Brazilian song in this poll. The song first appeared in 1972 on the self-titled record Jobim. Ogerman's instrumentation features 4 various types of flutes, along with violins, cello, guitar, piano, bass, and drums. Ogerman specifies 12 violins and 5 celli and provided exact divisi instructions (which we have included). In addition, all flutes are on bass flute for 4 measures only. We have retained this but have included alternate alto flute parts in the event that bass flutes aren't available. Lastly, we have included both the original Portuguese lyrics as well as the English lyrics. Learn More
  • AH-LEU CHA

    Supersax was a Charlie Parker tribute band formed by Med Flory and Buddy Clark that debuted in 1972. Their music consisted of harmonized arrangements of Charlie Parkers music played by a saxophone section (2 altos, 2 tenors, and a baritone), rhythm section, and frequently a brass instrument (trombone or trumpet). Notable brass soloists that recorded with the group included Conte Candoli (trumpet), Frank Rosolino (trombone) and Carl Fontana (trombone). Here is Med Flory's arrangement of Ah-Leu-Cha as recorded by Supersax. Charlie Parker's original solo was transcribed in full by Med Flory and then harmonized to be played by a standard big band sax section (2 altos, 2 tenors and 1 baritone). This is a very difficult arrangement but well worth the workout. Med said that it took his band nearly a year to rehearse in advance of recording each of the Supersax records. Well, here's your chance to put your sax section to the test! Enjoy the workout! Learn More
  • AIR MAIL SPECIAL

    Air Mail Special was originally titled Good Enough To Keep, which was recording session-speak for "This may not be the performance that we want to release to the public, but let"s hold on to it just in case." Many of these alternate performances were eventually released to the public, in many cases to the consternation of the musicians themselves, who didn't enjoy some of their lesser efforts being heard. Of course, some alternate performances are better than the ones that were released, only held back because of a single mistake. It was Mundy who arranged this for the Goodman band, and he is even cut in on composer credit. This arrangement, like all of Goodman's arrangements, was meant to be danced to, so it really should not be played too fast. Learn More
  • ALL I NEED IS THE GIRL

    Here is another great Billy May arrangement from the Sinatra/Ellington album, recorded in 1967. This nice swing chart features a solo for alto sax. 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
  • Ally

    This interesting sextet arrangement by Tom McIntosh was recorded by James Moody in 1962. This is a mini-suite that begins in a ballad setting then moves to up-tempo swing (including the solo section) before moving back to ballad tempo to close out the arrangement. Contents Full Score Flute/Tenor Saxophone Trumpet Trombone Piano Bass Drums Learn More
  • ANGEL EYES

    Here is a great Marty Paich arrangement for the Dave Pell Octet recorded on the Pell of a Time album in 1957. This chart features solos for trumpet and trombone. This is one of the easier Dave Pell charts to play, but is absolutely beautiful. This has been fully edited and engraved from the original parts and includes a full score. This is not the facsimile edition that was previously offered. Contents Full Score Tenor Saxophone Baritone Saxophone Trumpet Trombone Guitar Piano Bass Drums Learn More
  • Anthropology

    Anthropology was written by Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie. Evans arranged the line in 1947, and it was recorded for Columbia Records and for radio transcriptions. The instrumentation calls for 5 saxophones doubling clarinet, 3 trumpets, 2 trombones, 2 French horns, tuba, guitar, piano, bass, and drums. For this publication, the French horn and tuba parts alternately may be played by a 4th trumpet and trombones 3 and 4 as follows: Learn More
  • Any Old Time

    BIG BAND GIRL VOCAL - BILLIE HOLIDAY. This is one of those songs which are very worthwhile listening to on You Tube for the superb phrasing by Billie Holliday, even if you are not planning to buy the chart. This was one of Artie Shaw's biggest early hits.Recorded in 1938 with Billie Holiday and later on with Helen Forrest. It is a clarinet feature in addition to a vocal chart. It begins in F for a chorus and then modulates to C for the vocal part. The chart then goes to Ab for the last section. Shaw's clarinet parts are written out in full (on Alto1) as well as the 8-bar tenor solo. Chord changes have been provided in the event that the players would rather improvise. It was originally written for 3 trumpets and 2 trombones, but it has been adapted for 8 brass. Also the baritone sax doubles on Alto for most of the arrangement. Learn More
  • 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
  • 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
  • Bloomdido

    Here is Med Flory's arrangement of 'Bloomdido' as recorded by Supersax. Charlie Parker's original solo was transcribed in full by Med Flory and then harmonized to be played by a standard big band sax section (2 altos, 2 tenors and 1 baritone) with a trumpet and rhythm section (piano, bass, and drums). This is not a transcription. The original, hand-written manuscript has been used to produce this arrangement. This has been published with the authorization of Med Flory. This arrangement, built around a B flat blues, features an open solo section. 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
  • Blue Star

    These compositions and arrangements were originally recorded for Impulse on the albums Further Definitions (1961), and Additions to Further Definitions (1966), and for the Musical Heritage Society on Over the Rainbow (1989). These arrangements are not very difficult to play and they provide a lot of solo space for your players. This arrangement of Blue Star is a lovely ballad featuring a solo section for alto 1. Unlike the other arrangements in this series, this one features 2 altos and 2 tenors with rhythm section. There is no baritone saxophone in this arrangement. Learn More
  • Blues For Alice

    Here is the Supersax version of 'Blues for Alice' as recorded on the 1980 'Dynamite' record. Like the other Supersax arrangements that we publish this is not a transcription. The original, hand-written manuscript has been used to produce this arrangement. This has been published with the authorization and full support of Med Flory. This is a very advanced chart exactly as-recorded by Supersax. This arrangement did feature a trumpet solo by Conte Candoli. There is no trumpet part however, he improvised over the changes. An open solo section is included. Learn More
  • Blues For Pablo

    Originally written for Hal McKusick for inclusion on his Jazz Workshop LP recorded in 1956 for RCA Victor Records (this album also included Jambangle, which was later re-orchestrated and expanded for Evans' Big Stuff LP for Prestige Records). Evans mixes an idea in minor that has two influences (a theme from de Falla's ballet El Sombrero de Tres Picos and a Mexican folk song) with a blues in major, and the effect is pure Gil Evans. His treatment of this piece for Davis is identical in form to McKusick version, but is in a different key, and of course is set for a larger ensemble. Learn More
