  • Happiness is a Thing Called Joe

    BIG BAND GIRL VOCAL CHART. Transcribed from Ralph Burns' original chart written for Frances Wayne/Woody Herman. A lush swing ballad for female vocal. We have adapted the chart to suit a standard 5,4,4,4 line-up with a regular Sax section, though Woody's Clarinet line is taken by Alto 1 on Clarinet throughout. The 1st Trumpet is written to high G in the bridge, but this is cross-cued onto the Clarinet part if your lead can't reach this high. Learn More
  • Lady Is A Tramp, The

    A transcription of the Billy Byers chart as performed by Frank Sinatra backed by Woody Herman at Madison Square Gardens in 1974.  The opening is hinderingly brassy and establishes a great contrast to the quite start of the vocal. The first vocal chorus builds in intensity to the half-step modulation. From here the arrangement powers its way to the finish line, & swings like crazy all the way. This is classic Sinatra. Learn More
