  • A Shade Of Jade

    This arrangement features a lengthy solo 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! This has been edited and egraved directly from Joe's original scores and parts - this is not a transcription. Learn More
  • Complex City

    This composition by Oliver Nelson was recorded by the Jazz Interactions Orchestra in 1967, an ensemble led by pianist Billy Taylor. This is a brilliant and innovative piece of music. Less of an arrangement and more of a full-length composition, this features reeds on a variety of woodwinds and a percussion section including vibes, xylophone, timpani, and claves. This percussion part is meant to be played by a single person. There are many meter shifts including 3/4, 3/8, 3/16, 6/16, 5/8, 7/8, and 6/4! Oliver wrote this arrangement without a key signature and we have not included one. The first half of the composition is more classical inspired than jazz. There are Copland and Bartok influences throughout. An 8-bar drum solo leads the group into a bright swing feel for an open solo section. Solos are featured for piano, tenor saxophone, and trumpet. If your band can pull it off, this would make a fantastic concert or festival piece. Learn More
  • Goody Goody

    This 1936 tune represents some of the best of jazzy American pop. Due to its catchy melodic hook, this song has remained a jazz standard and has been interpreted in many styles. For Frank Sinatra's 1962 album "Sinatra and Swingin' Brass" Neal Hefti put together a steamrolling, brisk rendition to play off the song's melodic structure. This arrangement works so well against the melody beginning with a repeated rock-type melodic figure in the reeds. From the first measure you know you're in for a ride. There are no doubles.

  • I Won't Dance

    This is a vintage Neal Hefti arrangement from the 1962 Frank Sinatra and Count Basie collaboration "Sinatra-Basie". Mellow, but swinging lines and enough space to afford the vocalist some freedom of interpretation. The arrangement calls for alto 1 to double flute. An alternate alto 1 is included that avoids this in the event that you don't have a flutist available. The chart features a couple of short tenor sax solos, which have been written out. Learn More
  • Mele Kalikimaka

    This was originally featured on a Bing Crosby recording titled "Merry Christmas". It is not a technically demanding chart for the band. However, your singers need to be able to pull off this WWII-era vocal trio style, which sounds easier than it is. Plus, there is a male vocal that needs to seemlessly blend in as well. The Hawaiian slide guitar intro has been scored into the ensemble as very few bands would have access to this instrument. Learn More
  • Pop Giants For Bugle

    CONCERT BAND. A medley of hit numbers featuring solo flugelhorn and bound to be popular with audiences: "How Deep Is Your Love" "What A Wonderful World" and "Music Was My First Love". Learn More
  • Summer Wind

    Big Band Vocal - Frank Sinatra. This is a very straight-forward chart with no big surprises. The trick is to get that laid-back, Basie-style, swing feel. The tempo is approximately 92 bpm. The ranges are very comfortable, but the vocals go through several modulations: D flat to E flat to F. This is just another great, must-have Sinatra chart that your audience will love! Learn More
  • Without A Song

    This arrangement features a lengthy solo 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
