  • Fred's Delight

    In 1949 Artie Shaw hired Tadd Dameron to write a few arrangements for his band. Dameron composed and arranged So Easy, Lyonia (unrecorded), and this arrangement of Fred's Delight. Shaw recorded this once in 1950. Set in a medium swing tempo, this chart features clarinet in a bop-style melody. There is also a guitar solo and short written trumpet solo. There are no saxophone doubles. Learn More
  • Good Earth, The

    Written by Neal Hefti for the Woody Herman Orchestra, this is a blistering swing chart. This transcription is taken from the 1963 Basin Street West studio session in Hollywood and adapted for the usual 4 trumpets and 4 trombones. The reeds stay "as recorded", though we have included an extra Alto part which can be substituted for the 2nd Tenor part, making the section CTATB. Herman's solo is written out, but the Tenor solo is improvised. This is quite a challenging chart to play and it needs energy and good musicianship to do it justice. However, it is really rewarding for band and audiences alike. Learn More
  • I'm Coming Virginia

    All of these arrangements feature lengthy solos 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! Learn More

  • Jingle Bells

    On a warm, July day in 1961 Ernie Wilkins came to Count Basie gig at Birdland with a newly completed manuscript in his hand. Despite the fact that it was the middle of summer the band played it. This chart has been transcribed from the live recording. Basie starts off with a 64-bar solo based on an 8-bar chord progression. In the studio version there are only 16 bars upfront. Basie's piano intro from the studio recording has been written out as it serves the chart well. Chord changes for the tenor sax solo have been included rather than writing out the solo. There are no sax doubles. Learn More

  • Jumpin' at the Woodside

    This Count Basie version is fast, furious and it's fun. We have written the original solo's "as played", though your players could improvise from the chords.  This chart is a great opportunity for your players to showcase their talents Learn More
  • Just Plain Talkin'

    Tadd Dameron wrote this arrangement for Benny Goodman in 1962 for his tour of Russia (it wasn't recorded). He based it on the arrangement that he had recently written for his Magic Touch record. This arrangement is very close to the one from the Magic Touch album. The main difference is that for this arrangement he added a clarinet part (a solo part for Goodman), left out the flute double on alto 1, and wrote a shout chorus. The clarinet part for Goodman was just a solo section. We have taken out this part and given the solo to tenor 1. So, this may be played by a standard big band of 5/4/3/4. We have also included an open solo section. The sound sample has been provided courtesy of the Manhattan School of Music's Concert Jazz Band, conducted by Justin DiCioccio. Learn More
  • La Fiesta

    Here is a sizzling Afro-Cuban version of this Chick Corea clasic. Perfect for you pianist, but flexible solo section allows other players to be featured as well Learn More
  • Li'l Darlin

    Li'l Darlin' is one of the great tracks from the Basie band of the 1950's & one of a series written & arranged for the band by Neal Hefti to be found on The Atomic Mr Basie album. This is the original arrangement & not a transcription, & includes fully written out muted 4th Trumpet solo. There is not a full score with this arrangement, though a Conductor lead sheet is included. Listen using the link below Learn More
  • Loch Lomond

    Here is a great take on that well known Scottish traditional ditty.  This chart is transcribed from the version done by members ot the Benny Goodman orchestra in 1959 and features solo spots for Clarinet, trumpet and Alto. Learn More
  • Lonesome Nights

    Here is the 1933 Benny Carter classic slightly re-composed for the American Jazz Orchestra in 1986. This has the famous 1933 saxophone soli, taken directly from the parts that remained in Benny's library. As Benny continued to perform and teach over the years, he adapted his arrangements to fit a full big band of 8 brass. However, he never modified this arrangement. So, this publication remains true to the instrumentation of his early recording (5 reeds, 3 trumpets, 3 trombones, guitar, piano, bass, and drums). There are 8-bar solos for trumpet and piano and an open solo for alto saxophone that may be opened up to feature any number of soloists. Other than the saxophone soli, this arrangement is easy to play. If you're looking for a great concert or festival piece to feature your saxophone section, here it is! Learn More
  • Manteca

    This famous arrangement was written by Gil Fuller and recorded at one of the last sessions Dizzy Gillespie made for RCA Victor in 1947, before another recording ban took place during most of 1948. Manteca was co-written by Dizzy Gillespie and Chano Pozo in 1947 and became one of the first examples of Afro-Cuban influences being incorporated into jazz. In 1949 J.J. Robbins & Sons published a stock arrangement of this tune that was nearly identical to the arrangement from Dizzy's book. The only major difference was that the published version was for 3 trombones instead of 4. We have re-created the 4th trombone part. Learn More
  • Melancholy Lullaby

    Written in 1939 by Benny Carter and became his theme song. In the 1970s Benny revised his 1939 arrangement so that it featured a solo alto saxophonist along with a full big band. This is a very beautiful, late-night, show closer ballad. Brass are on cup mutes throughout. This arrangement was never recorded by Benny. Learn More
  • Millennium

    from his 1998 album I've Been Expecting You. In September 1998, it was released as the album's first track which became Williams' first single to top the UK Singles Chart. The song also received extensive airplay in the United States and Canada, where it was the lead single from Williams' 1999 compilation album, The Ego Has Landed. The song borrows heavily from the musical arrangement of John Barry's "You Only Live Twice". Learn More
