  • 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
  • All the Things You Are

    Recorded by Helen Forrest with the Artie Shaw band, this is an accurate transcription of the original Jerry Gray concept, complete with the intro Piano solo and Shaw's silky first chorus solo line. We have made a couple of small adaptations: the saxes are scored for AATTB, with Alto 1 taking the Clarinet lines, Baritone doubling Alto (to give the correct AATT backing to the Clarinet), and the brass has been augmented to 8 voices. All of the correct articulations, mute indications and dynamics are included, to enable an authentic performance. The vocal key is F and the vocal range would suit most male or female singers. The modulation into the vocal key is somewhat abrupt, so to help pitch the first vocal note the singer will need to listen to the top sax voice fairly carefully. Other than this, the chart is very playable, and the brass ranges are moderate. This is a great arrangement of a wonderful song. Learn More

  • 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

    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
  • 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

  • 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

  • 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
