  • Tenderly

    Tenderly has been a standard for trumpet players for a long time. This is the Ray Anthony version from his huge-selling album, 'Dream Dancing', from the early 50's & is in 4.4 time. Ray played a little bit with the Miller band &, when he formed his own outfit after WWII, he kept the clarinet lead. Ray is not a high-note artist & has a powerful low range, & in this chart the solo lead is given to the 3rd trumpet. Saxes are Miller voices, with Baritone on Alto. Learn More
  • The Fox

    This tune has a totally infectious bounce to it, & swings like crazy from start to finish. The arrangement is nearly all ensemble work, aside from a screaming 2nd Trumpet cameo solo, & there is a lot of plunger work in the Brass, with the sections answering each other behind the Sax lines, so it will have a lot of visual appeal in performance too. The drum part is fully notated with the necessary licks, & the Trumpet solo can be played as written or from the chords provided. Learn More
  • Thunderbird

    Thunderbird is a completely ensemble chart, and has some great sectional writing. The unusual feature part is the Baritone sax, which underpins the whole chart from start to finish. The arrangement is full of colour and dynamic contrast, as well as being a really bouncy swing number. Faithfully transcribed right down to the Anthony's cameo muted Trumpet lead over the sax section towards the end of the piece. Learn More
  • Trumpet Boogie

    Ray Anthony used this chart in much the same way as Harry James used Trumpet Blues - as a rousing sectional feature. It storms from start to end, & plays just as well at a slightly reduced tempo too.  The arrangement also features improvised solos from Temor and Trumpet, a cameo Piano solo in the intro, & some thundering sectional interplay. Saxes are scored for a regular section & there are no sax doubles. Learn More
