  • Christmas Song (Ella)

    This is our transcription of Ella Fitzgerald's wonderful rendition of The Christmas Song, also known as Chestnuts Roasting. This chart is scored for vocal solo, 5 saxes, rhythm and optional vibraphone only. We have also included a solo Trumpet part in lieu of the vibes. This is an easy chart to play and will be instantly recognised and appreciated by every audience. There are no sax doubles and the vocal line is scored "as sung" by Ella. The vocal key is Ab throughout. Learn More
  • Christopher Columbus

    A landmark chart from the Benny Goodman Orchestra. Goodman used many of Fletcher Henderson's arrangements for his band, but in the case of Christopher Columbus he played his own version, probably because the tune was Henderson's theme. We have adapted the Goodman original to suit an 8 brass line-up, & have transcribed all of the original solos (Clarinet, Trombone & Trumpet), though your players can improvise on the chords if they wish. The saxes are scored for Clarinet, 2 Altos & 2 Tenors. Learn More
  • Chu Cho

    Chu Cho is a wonderful Latin number, from the pen of the great Paquito D'Rivera, written for Mario Bauza and his Afro-Cuban Orchestra. This tune simply oozes style, & also offers a chance to show off the improvisation skills for your lead Alto (or Tenor), Baritone & lead Trombone. A fine addition to any library. Learn More
  • Ciribiribin

    The solo Trumpet chart by which all others are measured. Though it can also be used as a solo vehicle for Clarinet or Soprano Sax instead. This transription is the 1939 classic in full, from the classically inspired intro, the Mediterranean waltz section, the little Baroque bridge, the Trumpet Cadenza and the fast swing second half.   Duration 2'30". Learn More
  • Clarinade

    Mel Powell wrote this piece for Benny Goodman. The chart is full of rich, flowing texture and has a superb harmonic structure, yet is still a thumping swing number. Aside from an 8 measure Piano solo the chart is an out and out Clarinet feature. However, it is not easy. Your Clarinet player will need to be very nimble figured to get it right, as playing in the keys of E and F# at 240 beats a minute is quite a challenge,and the band will need to be tight and have good intonation too. The arrangement is scored for 8 Brass and 5 reeds - Clarinet, Alto, 2 Tenors and Baritone. Tenor 1 doubles Clarinet.  Duration 2'40". Learn More
  • Clarinet a la King

    A fab. chart from the Goodman band written by Eddie Sauter. The chart is harmonically very innovative, & shows glimpses of the sort of writing that Eddie Sauter produced later on in collaboration with Bill Finegan. The Clarinet & Piano solos are written out in full & all dynamics & articulations have been included on all the parts, because of this is one chart that simply won't work if played at the same volume throughout! We have augmented the Brass to 4+4 & the reeds are scored C/A/T/T/B. There are a couple of quick sax doubles - Baritone on Alto & 2nd Alto on Clarinet. Learn More
  • Clementine

    Calling all male vocalists! Clementine is simply great fun. This Bobby Darin version is in a similar style to his better known Mack the Knife, with successive half-step modulations, & a band backing that builds & builds to a huge finish. We have accurately notated Bobby's vocal line & phrasing, & written the rhythm parts as-played, where they are most important to the feel of the chart. No sax doubles. Learn More
  • Concerto for Clarinet Part 1

    Here is Part 1 of Artie Shaw's stunning Concerto for Clarinet. Following a big tutti opening comes a stylish Clarinet cadenza intro, with band backing & solo Piano fills. The Piano then picks up into 8-beat Boogie style with a 24 bar solo, answered by the Clarinet. Solos too for Trumpet, Trombone, Alto & Tenor with a final Clarinet solo flourish.  The whole piece is scored for Clarinet, 2 Altos, 2 Tenors, 8 Brass & 4 Rhythm. All solos are fully written out. Learn More
  • Concerto for Clarinet Part 2

    Here is Part 2 of Artie Shaw's stunning Concerto for Clarinet. The chart opens with four stylish Clarinet cadenzas, after which the drummer picks up the tempo with a floor-tom solo, joined by solo Clarinet for 40 measures. Briefly into 3/4 time for band chord stabs, the Clarinet & Drum solo continues. Another time shift for more stabs, then three tutti swing choruses to a false finish. The clarinet solo wraps things up with a further four cadenza passages. 'This is a very challenging work for solo clarinet. The saxes are 2 Altos & 2 Tenors. The Clarinet range is up to super C. Learn More
  • Contrasts

    Contrasts was Jimmy Dorsey's theme tune and, as you might expect, it is a big Alto sax feature. The title reflects the two moods of the song: the opening slow swing ballad featuring Alto, the almost double-time shift to rhythmic swing in the middle, and the revesion to the ballad theme for the close. The band backings behind the soloist are subdued, yet rich with harmonic texture, providing a perfect counterfoil to the soaring solo line. We have written the Dorsey solo out in full, though your soloist can be allowed some rhythmic freedom of expression with the chromatic and arpeggio runs. There are no sax doubles. Learn More
  • Corner Pocket

    Written by the unsung hereo of the Count Basie band, Freddie Green & it's title is a reference to the place that Green called his own - the corner pocket of the rhythm section.We have transcribed this chart from the "Basie in London" album but have adapted the chart slightly to make it suitable for 8 brass. There are ad-lib solo spots from Trumpets 1&2 & Tenor 1. Basie's piano solos are written out "as-played" as is the last 8 measures of the lead Trumpet solo because it suggests the theme for the final shout chorus at the end of the piece.. There are no sax doubles. Learn More
  • Cow Cow Boogie

    Ella Mae Morse Big Band Girl Vocal Chart. This arrangement relies on a rock steady left hand from the Pianist, to play the boogie-woogie style riffs that rumble on throughout the number and give it its distinctive groove. We have also written out the original Trombone and Trumpet solos which fit so well with the chart.  There are no sax doubles. Learn More
  • Cute

    Cute is one of the great tracks from the Hefti band of the 1950's & one of a series written & arranged for the band by Neil Hefti similar to that found on The Atomic Mr. Basie album. This is the original Hefti arrangement & not a transcription, & makes a nice show spot for your drummer. There is not a full score with this arrangement, though a Conductor lead sheet is included. A great tune. Listen to a live recording by Basie using link below Learn More
  • Danny Boy

    Here is the lovely Danny Boy (Londenderry Air) as played by the Miller Band., this chart features Miller voiced saxes, beautifully balanced muted brass & some delicate piano work which is written out for your pianist in the places that matter.  The lead Trombone is the cameo-featured solo instrument & its range goes quite high - to top C#. Lead Alto is on Clarinet throughout. 2nd Alto doubles Clarinet & the Baritone doubles Bass Clarinet, though we have cued the passage with notes for the Bari in case a Bass Clarinet is unavailable. Learn More
  • Darktown Strutters Ball

    This version is a transcription of the Ken Moule chart which was written for the Ted Heath Orchestra as part of their Decca recording sessions. It is two minutes of pure joy, featuring some great tutti passages, & a Dixieland chorus too. The Dixie trio is ad-lib, & is written for your 1st Trumpet, 1st Trombone & Clarinet. The Clarinet also features with a solo following the Dixie passage. The Sax section has a slightly unusual make-up being written for Clarinet, Soprano, Alto, Tenor & Baritone, though we have also included an extra Tenor part (a transposition of the Alto part) to give you more flexibility. Learn More
  • Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend

    Marilyn Monroe Big Band Vocal Chart. This arrangement is a straight ahead Female swing vocal.The chart opens with a signature sax line and bass run-down into the first vocal chorus which starts with just rhythm backing.When you buy this arrangement you get two versions - the parts come with an Ab version on one side & an Eb version on the reverse, so it will suit both Alto and Soprano vocalists. The brass ranges are moderate, with the Eb version easiest on the Trumpets (lead to A) and the Ab version has the lead Trumpet reaching Db.There are no sax doubles. Learn More
  • Dickie's Dream

    Dickie's Dream named after Basie's outstanding Trombonist Dicky Wells, was first recorded in 1939 as a 7-piece featuring Wells, Buck Clayton & Lester Young, backed by the All American Rhythm section. The tune evolved over time until Basie recorded the version that we offer here. This chart features Trumpet, Trombone, Tenor & Piano, interspersed with backing phrases from the rest of the band. All four of the solos are written out as played by the Basie band, though we have included the chords should your players wish to improvise. No sax doubles. Learn More
  • Don't Fence Me In

    ANDREW SISTERS BIG BAND GIRL VOCAL CHART. This arrangement of Don't Fence Me In is the version recorded by Bing Crosby with the Andrews Sisters in 1944. We have faithfully reproduced this chart, even down to the level of correctly detailing the crossing vocal lines sung by Maxene and Patty. Bing's part is written out "as sung" too. We have included the Piano fills and the rolling Piano and Bass lines that accompany the vocal trio in the second chorus. Saxes are scored for CATTB and the vocal key is Eb throughout. Learn More
  • Don't Sit Under the Apple Tree

    This was another of the Andrews Sisters big hits and sold very well, despite the success that the Glenn Miller band achieved with the same tune. The chart opens with a half tempo verse and picks up into fast swing for the first vocal chorus to the end of the piece. We have written the original vocal lines 'as-sung' by the Andrews Sisters, and adapted the band backings to bring it up to full big band sections. Lead Alto doubles Clarinet in the opening verse, and there are no other sax doubles. The vocal key is Eb. Learn More
  • Don't Sit Under the Apple Tree

    This is Glenn Miller's version that was originally performed by the Modernaires, except that we have turned it into an instrumental, whilst keeping the form true to the original. The band intro is there, as are the correct modulations and fills behind the melody lines. The trombones are written quite high in places (lead to high Db). We also offer this chart as a vocal.
