  • When The Going Gets Tough

    Billy Ocean Big Band Vocal. A really great bass line, dynamic brass figures and backing vocals combine to create a powerful number for a concert or party. Also available for small band, Cat No4435 Learn More
  • When Johnny Comes Marching Home

    This patriotic wartime tune was originally done by Glenn Miller with Tex Beneke & Marion Hutton & the Modernaires supplying the vocals.  We have scored the chart for Male & Female vocalist with a 4-piece backing group, though the arrangement works well as a boy girl duet or as a solo vocal. The Tenor sax line  is scored back in, thereby keeping your section complete. This chart is true to the Bill Finegan original, & there are no sax doubles. Trumpets 2,3,&4 need to be able to reach high C for the unison passage before the Tenor solo in the last chorus. Learn More
  • When It's Sleepy Time Down South

    Here is our transcription of the Bobby Pratt version of Sleepy Time Down South, as performed with the Ted Heath band. Bobby was a gifted trumpeter & a great high note player.  This chart is a Trumpet feature from start to finish & will need a fine player to make it work. Pratt's solo uses the full range of the instrument.. The last 12 measures of solo part reach super A, though can be played down an octave, the results are not the same. Other than the solo the brass ranges are moderate, with lead Trumpet to top D & lead Trombone to B. Alto's 1&2 double Clarinets no other sax doubles. Learn More
  • When Buddha Smiles

    Transcribed from the Jan Savitt arrangement as played by Glen Gray on the Time Life Swing Era (1939-1940 ) session, this is a roaring little up-tempo swing chart that pulses from start to finish. The Tenor, Trumpet and Rhythm solos are written out "as played", though your players can improvise their own if preferred. It's quite a quick tempo, but the chart is relatively simple, very playable and certainly very enjoyable. The chart opens in G, modulates to C for the unison Trombone soli and Tenor solo, and via a cleverly written descending brigde moves into Eb for the Trumpet solo. Another short bridge, taken by the rhythm section, moves the chart to Ab for the shout chorus. Learn More
  • When Buddha Smiles

    When Buddha Smiles was originally recorded by Goodman in 1935 when his band had a 5 piece brass section. We have augmented the chart up to a full 5444 line-up and have retained the original CAATT reed section. This high energy, up tempo swing chart has solos for Clarinet and Tenor (written on the 2nd Tenor part) and all the solos are written out "as played", though your players can improvise their own from the chords provided. The arrangement is classic Goodman, with some great sectional interplay and roaring ensemble passages. A fine chart for the swing dancers too. There are no sax doubles. Learn More
  • Whatever Lola Wants

    The mood of the arrangement is setup with an opening sax/rhythm section unison line. Drums are either on Latin percussion throughout or on a set without using the cymbals for most of the chart. The difficulty in this chart is the staccato hits and accents that the band do together - especially the end of the chart. The brief vocal cameos (shouting"Uh") have been scored into the band in the event that your players don't want to do them. Though in some way it really makes the chart. There are no doubles. Learn More
  • What's Going On

    This classic Marvin Gaye hit has always been a favorite with jazzers and has great crossover appeal. From the CD “Out of the Woods” by the Les Hooper Band, this funky version is infused with a West Coast attitude and is packed with energy and drive. A solo for alto sax is featured. Learn More
  • What is This Thing Called Love

    This is an up-tempo swingy version of What Is This Thing Called Love, the original Shaw arrangement being attributed to Jerry Gray. The first half chorus has a 2-beat feel, moving to full swing for the sax middle eight, and staying there for the rest of the chart. We have adapted the arrangement up to full 8 brass from the original 6. The solos are for Clarinet, Trumpet and Trombone and all three are written out in full, though your players can improvise their own solos if preferred. The reeds are scored for CAATT and all 4 saxes are required to double Clarinet for an 8 measure passage. Learn More
  • What Is Hip

    Signature tune from the definitive funk band, Tower Of Power. This dynamic and authentic chart offers your band a challenge that is worth the extra effort. Learn More
  • What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life

    This Arrangement begins rubato with a brief ensemble passage featuring arco bass. This proceeds to a piano/bass colla voce for the A section of the tune. The band is cued in at B in soft rock style with drums on brushes. At the end of the chorus there is a brief piano/bass colla voce that features a quote from the song "All the Things You Are". The band is then cued back in for the last A section of the tune. The chart finishes with a rubato section with arco bass. This is not a transcription. Learn More
  • What are you doing New Years' Eve

    "What are you doing New Year's Eve" is a beautiful seasonal ballad, arranged for Female vocal by Jon Harpin. This lovely arrangement of the Frank Loesser tune chart features some lush band voicings, with muted brass throughout. The 4th Trumpet is really a solo obligato part, noodling away behind the vocal where appropriate. The 1st Alto had a couple of bars of Clarinet double in the intro, but apart from that there are no other sax doubles. The brass ranges are very moderate, & the vocal would suit most Male or Female vocalists. Learn More
  • Well Get It

    Sy Oliver wrote a number of memorable charts for the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra. However, Well Get It is one of his finest, & yet not best known. A thumping swing chart that features first & second trumpet in a great duet near the end, & also including the original (written out) solos for trombones, clarinet & tenor. If you play to a jive or jitterbug crown they will love this. Be warned though - it is a tough blow for the trumpets. The lead range is to high G & the second to high D. Second alto takes the clarinet double. Learn More
  • We'll Meet Again

    Another nostalgic song from the early WWII years. We'll Meet Again remains as popular as ever. It is a particularly good closing number for a nostalgia gig or concert as it is not a long arrangement, but a very effective one. The Saxes are Miller-voiced with Clarinet Lead & Baritone on Alto throughout. Learn More
  • We Will Rock You

    CONCERT BAND The great power rock anthem in a dynamic full concert band arrangement. This is a real "Blow The Cobwebs Away" number, perfect for a concert finale or encore (forget about Bizet and Brahms!) full score included, plus alternative bass clef (c) and treble clef (Bb) trombone parts, ensemble/ section playing throughout with no solos. Learn More
  • We Can Work It Out
