  • 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

    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

  • Carioca

    This is one of Artie Shaw's most memorable charts, and simply a joy to play. Opening with a short 6 measure half time statement, the drums then double the tempo and away we go.  The arragement has great sectional interplay, plenty of plunger action in the brass, and several rousing shout choruses at the end, culminating in a final Clarinet flourish. The Shaw & Pastor solos (for Clarinet & Tenor) are written out in full, and there are no sax doubles. The reeds are scored for CAATT. Included is an extra Baritone part, making the section CAATB and giving you more flexibility in deciding which player takes the Clarinet solo line. Duration 3'10". Learn More
  • Cerezo Rosa (Cherry Pink)

    Cerezo Rosa, or Cherry Pink & Apple Blossom White as it is otherwise known, is probably Perez Prado's most well known piece. In essence, it's a Trumpet solo with big band backing, & is instantly recognisable for the valved & lipped slur/scoop at the start of the soloists phrase. We have written the solo part for the 4th Trumpet. All of the rhythm parts are written out in full, though your Pianist & Guitarist are equally free to play their own interpretation from the chords provided. The lead Trumpet has to reach a high E once, & some high D's with an option to scream to high F.  No sax doubles. Learn More
