  • Amapola

    This is the Benny Goodman version of Amapola, with Helen Forest taking the vocal. A delightful tune, well delivered, & of course with a Clarinet solo from the great man himself. This chart is as per the original version, & we have scored the Saxes AATT plus a Clarinet Solo part. The trick with this chart is not to play it too fast. It just chugs along & swings all the way.  Learn More
  • And The Angels Sing

    Another classic adapted from the Benny Goodman arrangement. In the original arrangement the vocal chorus led to a typical Goodman 'Yiddish' trumpet chorus. In our arrangement this is replaced by a more conventional trumpet solo chorus & 'middle 8', with the vocal returning to close the chorus. The ending is as per the original, with a trumpet solo feature leading the band to a rousing finale. Learn More
  • Anvil Chorus

    Originally from Verdi's Il Trovatore, Anvil Chorus was a big hit for the Glenn Miller band, thanks to the fabulous arrangement by Gerry Gray. We have faithfully restored the original version here, complete with fully written out solos for Tenor & Trumpet. The Saxes are voiced AAATT throughout, as per the original & all dynamics are clearly marked. This chart is great in performance, & at 240 bpm you will need precision & nimble fingers to pull it off. Learn More
  • Anything Goes

    This arrangement of Anything goes is scored as a female vocal, very much in the style of Ella Fitzgerald. The intro features the rarely heard verse before moving into swing tempo at a medium 120 beats per minute, with muted brass backing the first vocal chorus. The second chorus is led by the saxes, followed by a full ensemble leading to the vocal return for the middle eight to the end of the chorus, with a brief ensemble shout to finish. The saxes are scored to double Flute, Clarinets and Bass Clarinet for the intro, though all parts have cues for saxes which allows the chart to be played by a regular AATTB section with no doubles. Brass ranges are very moderate, with lead Trumpet to a written A and lead Trombone to G. The vocal key is Gm / G major. Learn More
  • Apple Blossom Time

    ANDREW SISTERS BIG BAND GIRL VOCAL CHART. This arrangement of the Andrews Sisters version of Apple Blossom Time shows a more sentimental side of the trio's repertoire. Unusually, the chart is only scored for 3 voices, 4 Trombones & 4 Rhythm. There are no parts for Trumpets or Saxes, so it can be used as a showcase for your bone-section & singers. Faithfully transcribed by Alan Glasscock by referencing a number of recordings that the Sisters made, in order to achieve complete authenticity & accuracy. This number will sit well in any set, particularly as a late-night closer. Learn More
  • Apple Honey

    This version follows the form of the Woody Herman original, though the solo spaces less cluttered.  Because of the speed this chart is rated advanced. Learn More
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • Avenue C

    Here is Avenue C in all its glory. A rousing flat-out swing chart. This chart powers from start to finish & is great for both concert work & swing dancing. We have faithfully transcribed all of the instrumental solos (2 tenors, trumpet, trombone & piano), & have included all phrsing marks, articulations & dynamics. This is a truly rare chart from the Basie band at the height of its power. 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
  • Back Bay Shuffle

    Back Bay Shuffle is a jump tempo swing chart from the great Artie Shaw orchestra, perfect for dancing. We have transcribed this chart as per the original, though expanding it to 8 brass in the process. All solos (Clarinet, Trumpet, Trombone, Tenor & Piano) are written out in full, as are the correct drum patterns. The reeds are scored for Solo Clarinet, 2 Altos & 2 Tenors. Everything is here - correct sax voicings, dynamic markings & Phrasing indications so that your band can recreate that punchy Shaw sound. Learn More
  • Basie Boogie

    Basie Boogie is, as its name might suggest, an up-tempo Piano feature that swings from top to toe. Like many of Basie's charts, the arrangement evolved over time, but this version is from the original recording.We have written out the Piano part in full to include the licks & fills & the boogie-woogie left hand patterns, though your player can improvise from the chords if needs be. The band parts are not demanding, & fairly sparse, leaving the Pianist all the space needed to do his thing. A rare chartg & a real gem. There are no sax doubles. Learn More
  • Basie X. P.

    Basie X.P. is an up tempo original from Jon Harpin in true Basie style. Great ensemble scoring coupled with written out Basie style solo for piano. The main  focus of the chart is an extended solo for your Tenor player, conceived as a "romp" a la "Lock Jaw Davis"  in "Whirlybird", & can be as long as desired. The brass ranges are not very demanding, making the chart very playable. Learn More
  • Basie's Blues in C

    A superb original composition from Jon Harpin, featuring your Pianist & Trombone. Basie's Blues is a really laid-back number, but with plenty to interest all your players & any audience. This chart, whilst a tribute to the Count, is scored & voiced in a contemporary way, making it sound rich & full-bodied. It is also around 6 minutes long, so is great value. There is a long Sax passage that will need rehearsal, to get the phrasing & feel right. Learn More
  • Baubles Bangles & Beads

    This version is a straight-ahead Latin (Cha Cha) chart as played by Tito Puente Learn More
  • Beat Me Daddy Eight to the Bar

    ANDREW SISTERS BIG BAND GIRL VOCAL CHART. This arrangement of Apple Blossom Time shows a more sentimental side of the trio's repertoire. Unusually, the chart is only scored for 3 voices, 4 Trombones & 4 Rhythm. There are no parts for Trumpets or Saxes, so it can be used as a showcase for your bone-section & singers. Faithfully transcribed by Alan Glasscock by referencing a number of recordings that the Sisters made, in order to achieve complete authenticity & accuracy. This number will sit well in any set, particularly as a late-night closer.The Andrew Sisters had enormous success with Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, & this chart has the same infectious eight beat boogie woogie feel. We have scored the vocals for SSA female trio, & have also included a solo vocal sheet, making the arrangement singable with only one vocalist. We have augmented the original studio version up to full big band. The brass ranges are very moderate, with the lead Trumpet only reaching A. The piano part is fully written out, though your player can improvise a boogie woogie line if preferred. There are no sax doubles. Learn More
  • Beaver Junction

    Beaver Junction is another classic swing chart from the Basie Band. Written by Harry Edison, this chart whilst still being a punchy swing tune, shows the way for others such as Cute, where unison muted Trumpets take the melody. There are a couple of fine Sax soli passages in this arrangement, a small cameo solo for Trumpet 2 & the Basie piano intro that became something of a hallmark. Not technically difficult, this chart requires precision & good section work to do it justice. Great for dancing or concert work. No sax doubles. Learn More
  • Bedford Drive

    Bedford Drive has an altogether modern feel about it, with some interesting harmonic structures, particularly in the tutti passages. All of Shaw's solo sections are transcribed in full, & in parts they are fairly challenging, though your player can improvise from the chords if preferred. The Guitar solo is also transcribed, and cross-cued onto the Piano part in case you have no Guitar in your rhythm section. The brass ranges are moderate & there are no sax doubles. Duration 3'25".   Learn More
