  • 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
  • Hard Hearted Hannah

    BIG BAND GIRL VOCAL CHART. Hard Hearted Hannah is a showstopper of a female vocal. Big, brassy & with real punch, this chart has been exquisitely transcribed & adopted by Jon Harpin from the Julie London original. Although not long, at two minutes, it is as long as it needs to be. The brass ranges are reasonable, though the lead trumpet does hit a high E, but this is an octave double from the rest of the section & could be taken down. The string lines are re-scored into the saxes with Alto 1 doubling Clarinet. Learn More
  • My Heart Belongs to Daddy

    Cole Porter penned some fabulous songs. My Heart Belongs to Daddy was written for the 1938 musical, Leave it to Me, & has a wonderfully naughty lyric where 'daddy' means 'sugar daddy'. Our arrangement is based on that recorded by Julie London, where her smoky-voiced style perfectly suits the tune. The chart is scored for 5, 4, 4, 4 & is not too demanding on the brass, plus there are no sax doubles either. If your singer has a low Alto range, then this number would suit her perfectly. The vocal key is F minor. Learn More
