  • Anthropology

    Anthropology was written by Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie. Evans arranged the line in 1947, and it was recorded for Columbia Records and for radio transcriptions. The instrumentation calls for 5 saxophones doubling clarinet, 3 trumpets, 2 trombones, 2 French horns, tuba, guitar, piano, bass, and drums. For this publication, the French horn and tuba parts alternately may be played by a 4th trumpet and trombones 3 and 4 as follows: Learn More
  • Anvil Chorus

    Originally from Verdi's Il Trovatore, Anvil Chorus was a big hit for the Glenn Miller band, thanks to the fabulous arrangement by Gerry Gray. We have faithfully restored the original version here, complete with fully written out solos for Tenor & Trumpet. The Saxes are voiced AAATT throughout, as per the original & all dynamics are clearly marked. This chart is great in performance, & at 240 bpm you will need precision & nimble fingers to pull it off.

  • Any Old Time

    BIG BAND GIRL VOCAL - BILLIE HOLIDAY. This is one of those songs which are very worthwhile listening to on You Tube for the superb phrasing by Billie Holliday, even if you are not planning to buy the chart. This was one of Artie Shaw's biggest early hits.Recorded in 1938 with Billie Holiday and later on with Helen Forrest. It is a clarinet feature in addition to a vocal chart. It begins in F for a chorus and then modulates to C for the vocal part. The chart then goes to Ab for the last section. Shaw's clarinet parts are written out in full (on Alto1) as well as the 8-bar tenor solo. Chord changes have been provided in the event that the players would rather improvise. It was originally written for 3 trumpets and 2 trombones, but it has been adapted for 8 brass. Also the baritone sax doubles on Alto for most of the arrangement. Learn More
  • Anything Goes

    Here's Nelson Riddle's famous arrangement from Frank Sinatra's classic record 'Song for Swingin' Lovers,' recorded in 1956. The arrangement opens with the guitar playing a little syncopated figure and alto 1 on flute. Trombones are on cup mutes for the vocal entrance. Unlike other Riddle/Sinatra charts from this period, there isn't any instrumental section in this arrangement - there are vocals throughout. This isn't really that difficult of an arrangement, but just a really great showcase for your male vocalist. Alto 1 doubles on flute. Learn More
  • Anything Goes

    This arrangement of Anything goes is scored as a female vocal, very much in the style of Ella Fitzgerald. The intro features the rarely heard verse before moving into swing tempo at a medium 120 beats per minute, with muted brass backing the first vocal chorus. The second chorus is led by the saxes, followed by a full ensemble leading to the vocal return for the middle eight to the end of the chorus, with a brief ensemble shout to finish. The saxes are scored to double Flute, Clarinets and Bass Clarinet for the intro, though all parts have cues for saxes which allows the chart to be played by a regular AATTB section with no doubles. Brass ranges are very moderate, with lead Trumpet to a written A and lead Trombone to G. The vocal key is Gm / G major. Learn More
  • Apple Blossom Time

    ANDREW SISTERS BIG BAND GIRL VOCAL CHART. This arrangement of the Andrews Sisters version of Apple Blossom Time shows a more sentimental side of the trio's repertoire. Unusually, the chart is only scored for 3 voices, 4 Trombones & 4 Rhythm. There are no parts for Trumpets or Saxes, so it can be used as a showcase for your bone-section & singers. Faithfully transcribed by Alan Glasscock by referencing a number of recordings that the Sisters made, in order to achieve complete authenticity & accuracy. This number will sit well in any set, particularly as a late-night closer. Learn More
  • Apple Honey

    This version follows the form of the Woody Herman original, though the solo spaces less cluttered.  Because of the speed this chart is rated advanced. Learn More
  • April in Paris

Enjoy great flexibility with the Easy Jazz Ensemble series! Playable with 4 saxes, 3 trumpets, 3 trombones and rhythm; includes optional parts for flute, clarinet, F horn and tuba. Learn More
  • April in Paris

    One of the great standards in a very playable vocal arrangement. A full band intro gives an excellent lead in for the vocalist. There are plenty of backings/fills throughout and an instrumental section with ideas from the well known Count Basie version. Instrumentation:  5 saxes (AATTB), 4 trumpets, 4 trombones, 3 Bb clar. 3 flutes, horn in F, 4 rhythm. Learn More

  • April In Paris

    This version of April in Paris has been lovingly assembled from a number of recordings done by the Basie band of this fabulous Wild Bill Davis chart, and has a richer, lusher, more authentic feel than previous / current offerings published by other companies. We have taken down the Henderson Chambers' Trombone solo (on Bass Bone, but cross cued on the other parts), and the stunning Phil Guilbeau Trumpet solo (written out), both from Basie's Sept.1965 London concert. The Trumpet solo in particular is in a different league to Basie's early "pop goes the weasel" version, though your player can improvise from the chords provied too. We have included the "one moe time" ending too, should you wish to tease the crowds. This chart will not disappoint. Learn More
  • ARAB DANCE

    This has been published directly from the original manuscript, edited by Jeffrey Sultanof. This master edition comes with complete background and performance notes. This concert arrangement is scored for 7 reeds, 3 trumpets, 2 French horns, 2 trombones, guitar, piano, bass, and drums. See below for complete instrumentation including information on reed doubling. The two French horns have been scored into trumpet 4 and trombone 3 parts, so this piece may be played without them. Approximately 4:30 in length. Learn More
  • Arthur's Theme (Best that you can do)

    A full concert band instrumental chart of this great rock ballad which follows the original recording. As well as full woodwind, brass, percussion, drum kit, congas, keyboard & electric bass parts are included. The Alto Sax solo has been transcribed from the original Christopher Cross CD to complete this classic number. A great favorite with audiences. Learn More
  • Artistry in Rhythm

    Composed and recorded by Stan Kenton in the 1940s, Artistry in Rhythm became his signature and a true classic from the big band era. Paul Murtha has skillfully adapted and truncated this chart for younger players while maintaining the flavor and energy of the original. Solo piano starts things off, followed by the iconic trombone solo in the medium Latin section. The exciting double-time swing section features the entire ensemble, then the “maestoso” theme returns to close things out. Impressive! Learn More
  • As Time Goes By

    This is one of our specially written charts for student/amateur swing bands.  In addition to the usual 8 Brass and 5 Saxes we have included optional Flutes, Clarinets and a Horn in F.  Very safe brass ranges are adopted throughout. This all time favourite ballad, featured in the 1942 film Casablanca, deserves to be included in every band's library.  It has a very comfortable vocal range.  After a full ensemble introduction the first vocal chorus has muted trumpet fills and very playable background figures from the rest of the band.  An instrumental half chorus is included. Learn More
  • As Time Goes By

    Here is Tony Bennett's great version of As Time Goes By. The chart opens with the rarely heard verse, colla voce, backed by the Piano, (though you can start the chart at the chorus if you prefer) and moves smoothly into the swing choruses, with some great band backings that never intrude in the singers' space. There's not much more to say really, other than the tune is always popular, instantly recognisable, and makes a really good late night slow dance chart. the brass ranges are moderate, apart from a high D in the Trumpet 1 / 2 parts (Trumpet 2 can drop this down an octave if needs be). The vocal key is C throughout, and there are no sax doubles. Learn More
  • At Last

    The Miller band had several version of this chart, & ours is drawn from the version in the film 'Orchestra Wives'. Whilst it is not the complete film version, with both male & female vocal, it has the same dramatic opening with Billy May's trumpet solo then into the Sax soli, followed by a Trombone soli in even time, accompanied by Piano obligato. Then follows the modulation into the vocal chorus (in the key of A) & final band flourish. There is no audio file here, but for those of you who know the film, the above description should tell you all you need to know!! Lead Alto in on Clarinet throughout, & Baritone doubles Alto. Learn More
  • At Sundown

    This is Artie Shaw's 1939 version of At Sundown, from the time when his first band was arguably at its height. The arrangement has been adapted from the original 3 Trumpet 3 Trombone line-up, to a regular 4 4 brass section, & the Reeds are scored for Clarinet, 2 Altos & 2 Tenors. We have written out Shaw's Clarinet solo in full along with the Tenor & Trumpet solos, but have left the Piano solo as an improvisation. All the soloists have the chords on their parts should they wish to do their own thing.  There are no Sax doubles. Learn More
