  • Ev'ry Time We Say Goodbye

    Here is a really rich and lush arrangement of Cole Porter's beautiful ballad. Written for female vocal, the chart was in part inspired by Ella Fitzgerald's rendition in her Songbook album, but is not a transcription of that particular version. After a short intro the singer takes the first chorus, backed by woodwind and muted brass. The saxes take a soli, backed by Trombones, and then the bones take their soli backed by muted Trumpets. The vocalist returns and rounds the whole thing off. In the reeds Alto 1 doubles Flute, Alto 2 and both Tenors double Clarinet. However, we have printed the A2, T1 & T2 parts double-sided, with a "no Clarinet double" option on the reverse. The vocal key is Bb throughout. Learn More
  • Humanism

    Recorded by jazz artist Jon Batiste and his group Stay Human as the theme song for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, this energetic tune features an appealing contemporary jazz/rock flare. Saxes take the lead in the beginning supported by funky riffs from the entire ensemble. Solos are available for any combination of alto sax, trumpet, or trombone. Learn More
  • Snowfall (Thornhill)

    Snowfall was the theme tune of Claude Thornhill, and as you would expect, it is a Piano feature. We have transcribed Thornhills' chart in full, and this call for all 5 Saxes to double Clarinets for the first chorus. However, we recognise that not all bands will have 5 players who double Clarinet, so we have written alternative sax parts on the reverse pages which are written in Miller voicing, with the lead Alto on Clarinet and the Baritone on Alto. The brass ranges are easy and the chart will be playable by bands of all levels, provided you have a dexterous Pianist who can play the rapid running fills near the end of the chart. Snowfall also makes for a good Christmas chart. Learn More
  • (Everybody's Waitin' for) The Man with the Bag (Key: A-flat)

    Composed in the '50s, this entertaining Christmas season tune has been recorded notably by Kay Star, and more recently the Brian Setzer Orchestra. A dynamic and swingin' addition to any holiday concert! Learn More
  • 12th Street Rag

    BIG BAND. 12th Street Rag as you never imagined! It opens by imitating traffic along 12th Street, in a series of dissonant hoots before the band kicks in with the real intro. The chart uses a dixie band-in-band on three occasions, in a different historical jazz style - 20's, 40's and 60's. Interspersed with these are some blasting tutti passages. The whole piece goes through 5 modulations, building all the time. This is a very challenging chart in all sections. Also both Altos and Tenors double Clarinet, and the Bari doubles Alto for his solo (which can be played on Bari instead). Learn More
  • A Fine Romance

    Transcribed and adapted by Jon Harpin from the original Nelson Riddle chart, this chart is an out-and-out vocal feature, with no instrumental chorus. The backing lines from the band are solid and rhythmic, building from start to finish. We have removed the original string lines and re-scored them into the band, making the chart playable by a standard 5444 line-up. There are no sax doubles and the vocal key is F, modulating chromatically to end in G. The vocal part is notated "as sung" by Ella. Learn More
  • 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 Horse With No Name

    BIG BAND INSTRUMENTAL. This is a simple swing-feel chart with a very catchy melody and very modest ranges. A flexible solo section can be used for all players, any groupings, or an individual solo. Learn More
  • 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 Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square

    Lovingly transcribed by Alan Glasscock from Miller's October 1940 New York recording originally arranged by Bill Finegan and sung by Ray Eberle, this lush chart is classic Miller, full of tonal colour and rich dynamics. The reeds are scored CAATT, with all saxes called upon to double Clarinets. Tenor 2 also has a short Bass Clarinet line underneath the Trombones, but this can be played as written on Tenor. The Tex Beneke solo is written out in full too.  The vocal key is Eb. 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

    This hot Gordon Goodwin chart is now for the younger player. Slick and funky describes this very accessible arrangement. There are written solos for 1st alto (cued for 2nd alto) and a 1st trumpet solo cued in all four trumpet parts. Lead trumpet has a written A above the staff, but technically this chart is not difficult and will come together quickly to earn a spot in your programme. Learn More
