  • Beat Me Daddy Eight to the Bar

    ANDREW SISTERS BIG BAND GIRL VOCAL CHART. This arrangement of Apple Blossom Time shows a more sentimental side of the trio's repertoire. Unusually, the chart is only scored for 3 voices, 4 Trombones & 4 Rhythm. There are no parts for Trumpets or Saxes, so it can be used as a showcase for your bone-section & singers. Faithfully transcribed by Alan Glasscock by referencing a number of recordings that the Sisters made, in order to achieve complete authenticity & accuracy. This number will sit well in any set, particularly as a late-night closer.The Andrew Sisters had enormous success with Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, & this chart has the same infectious eight beat boogie woogie feel. We have scored the vocals for SSA female trio, & have also included a solo vocal sheet, making the arrangement singable with only one vocalist. We have augmented the original studio version up to full big band. The brass ranges are very moderate, with the lead Trumpet only reaching A. The piano part is fully written out, though your player can improvise a boogie woogie line if preferred. There are no sax doubles. Learn More
  • Beaver Junction

    Beaver Junction is another classic swing chart from the Basie Band. Written by Harry Edison, this chart whilst still being a punchy swing tune, shows the way for others such as Cute, where unison muted Trumpets take the melody. There are a couple of fine Sax soli passages in this arrangement, a small cameo solo for Trumpet 2 & the Basie piano intro that became something of a hallmark. Not technically difficult, this chart requires precision & good section work to do it justice. Great for dancing or concert work. No sax doubles. Learn More
  • Bedford Drive

    Bedford Drive has an altogether modern feel about it, with some interesting harmonic structures, particularly in the tutti passages. All of Shaw's solo sections are transcribed in full, & in parts they are fairly challenging, though your player can improvise from the chords if preferred. The Guitar solo is also transcribed, and cross-cued onto the Piano part in case you have no Guitar in your rhythm section. The brass ranges are moderate & there are no sax doubles. Duration 3'25".   Learn More
  • Begin the Beguine

    This Artie Shaw classic plays down just like the original ans is a "must have"  for any library.  Parts for CAATTB reeds are available on request should your band ever feature a Solo Clarinet player. Learn More
  • Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen

    ANDREW SISTERS BIG BAND GIRL VOCAL CHART. The vocal lines are written out "as sung", and the Trumpet solo is written out in full too. Alto 1 is on Clarinet throughout, with Alto 2 and both Tenors doubling Clarinet up to the Trumpet solo. Duration: 3'10".   Learn More
  • Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea

    This tune was recorded by Ella for her Harold Arlen songbook album, with the original arrangement scored by Billy May. We have adapted the chart to a full 5444 line-up (from the original 5114) though have kept the feel and flavor true to the original. Billy May chose an innovative set of chord changes for his chart which are significantly different from Harold Arlen's concept. The result is that the chart is cool yet progressive and, whilst the band notes are easy, it will need to be sung very confidently, as the vocal line doesn't immediately sit very naturally against the band backings. It will require a bit of practice. We have written Ella's vocal line "as sung", including the scat passage towards the close of the chart. The vocal key is Bb throughout, and there are no sax doubles. The original Vibe solo is replaced by Piano ad-lib. Learn More
  • Big John's Special

    Big John's Special is a romping swing chart from the early years of the Benny Goodman Orchestra, when much of his success came courtesy of Fletcher Henderson's arrangements. We have expanded the chart up to 8 brass, & because the chart is not a Clarinet feature - it only has an 8 measure solo - we have scored the Saxes for a regular AATTB section, with Alto 2 doubling the Clarinet solo. We have also written out the Trumpet solos & the Piano solo in "stride" style. This tune makes an excellent choice for the swing dance crowd, & it is heaps of fun to play. Learn More
  • Big Spender (Peggy Lee)

    Big Spender was written by Cy Coleman & Dorothy Fields for the 1966 musical "Sweet Charity". Peggy Lee's version was the original "pop" version of the tune and set the standard that other artists, such as Shirley Bassey, would follow. Our chart is based on Dave Grusin's orogonal and is scored for a regular 5444 big band line-up. The 4th Trombone is a Bass, there are no sax doubles and the vocal line is written "as sung" by Ms Lee. The vocal key is Bbm. Learn More
  • Big Time

    Linda Eder Big Band Vocal Chart. From the opening Sing Sing style drum solo this fast, punchy and very powerful chart will just knock your socks off. The reeds are scored CATTB, though we have included an extra Alto part - a transposition of Tenor 1 - which allows your section to be CAATB, giving you flexibility as to who plays the Clarinet line. Duration 3:40 Learn More
  • Birmingham Bounce

    Birmingham Bounce is a postwar chart from the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, featuring the singing & fiery Trumpet of Charlie Shavers. This is a very good dance chart & has a lot of nice features in the arrangement - Vocal stops, hand claps, powerful ensemble passages, a solo spot for Tenor & some screaming Trumpet licks too. As the name suggests, this chart really bounces along.  The Trumpet soloist has a written high F & the Trombones need to reach Bb. The key is Eb and would suit a high Baritone or an Alto. Learn More
  • Bizet Has His Day

    Made famous by the Les Brown Orchestra, this tune is one in a series of numbers where a classical theme is given the swing treatment. From a piano opening phrase, echoed by trombones, the lower Saxes enter with the fugue, the altos vary it, & trumpets are layered on top, to arrive at the full swing phrase. Solos for Alto 2, Trombone 2 & Piano. Lead alto doubles clarinet, Baritone doubles Alto. Learn More
  • Black Coffee

    This tune has been performed by many artists over the years, & is a 'must-have' standard in any repertoire. This particular version was done by Julie London & it oozes class. The vocal is sultry, moody, & tells a story of woe. The vocalist is backed sympathetically by the band, & the overall mood is helped by a sleazy Alto solo that winds in & out during the chart. The Trombones are scored for 3 Tenors & a Bass, & the Bass is vital to the arrangement.  There are no Sax doubles, the brass ranges are very moderate & the vocal key is A. Learn More

  • Bloomdido

    Here is Med Flory's arrangement of 'Bloomdido' as recorded by Supersax. Charlie Parker's original solo was transcribed in full by Med Flory and then harmonized to be played by a standard big band sax section (2 altos, 2 tenors and 1 baritone) with a trumpet and rhythm section (piano, bass, and drums). This is not a transcription. The original, hand-written manuscript has been used to produce this arrangement. This has been published with the authorization of Med Flory. This arrangement, built around a B flat blues, features an open solo section. Learn More
  • Blue Moon

    This swinging Nelson Riddle arrangement comes from Frank Sinatra's "Swingin' Session and More" record. In typical Riddle fashion, the chart begins with a memorable introduction and then the vocals enter with great rhythmic figures in the sax section and a familiar baritone sax line. Then the brass enter for the second A section and the chart really gets going. There is a tenor sax solo (over the first two A sections) that has been written out in full. The chord changes have been included as well in the event that your player wants to improvise instead. There are no sax doubles. Learn More
  • Blue Star

    These compositions and arrangements were originally recorded for Impulse on the albums Further Definitions (1961), and Additions to Further Definitions (1966), and for the Musical Heritage Society on Over the Rainbow (1989). These arrangements are not very difficult to play and they provide a lot of solo space for your players. This arrangement of Blue Star is a lovely ballad featuring a solo section for alto 1. Unlike the other arrangements in this series, this one features 2 altos and 2 tenors with rhythm section. There is no baritone saxophone in this arrangement. Learn More
