  • All the Cats Join In

    Transcribed from her "Rare Gems & Hidden Treasures" album, this sultry chart shows off Peggy Lee's relaxed, almost drawling vocal style at its best. The arrangement is laid back, cool, very hip for its time and a pleasure to play. We have scored the Piano, Bass and Guitar lines "as played", as they cement the feel of the chart. The cameo Alto solo is written out too, with chords also provided. This chart is very straightforward, and the brass ranges are quite moderate (with lead Trumpet to high C# and lead Trombone to Bb). There are no sax doubles and the vocal key is Gm throughout. 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
  • That's My Style

    That's My Style is the late, great Peggy Lee at her laid back best. This tune is so relaxed it is almost horizontal, yet the band's support of the vocalist is just perfect. Loud and snappy where it needs to be, yet in places as laconic as the vocal itself. The tempo is moderate & the brass ranges not overly demanding, though the band needs to be tight  to do the chart justice. No sax doubles. Learn More
  • Why Don't You Do Right

    This version of Why Don't You Do Right was recorded in 1942 by Peggy Lee during her stay with the Benny Goodman band. We have faithfully transcribed Goodman's chart including all of the Clarinet licks & solos, but have expanded the brass from the original 6 up to 8. The sax parts are written for Solo Clarinet, Alto, 2 Tenors & Baritone though we have included an extra Alto sax part (the Tenor 1 part, written for Alto) to give  a bit more flexibility in the section. The brass ranges are very moderate, & aside from the Clarinet solo there are no surprises. Learn More
  • You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby

    This version of "You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby" has been transcribed and adapted by Jon Harpin from the version Peggy Lee recorded in 1967 on the Capitol album "Something Groovy!" & it's written in a swingin' 60's pop style. We've done a bit of adaptation to the chart, to give you some options in performance, by cross-cueing the solo guitar lines into the saxes in case your band has no guitarist. Org. string lines are written in the reeds. Although playable with an upright bass, & electric bass works best. No sax doubles. Learn More
