 529-D 12th Street Rag THIS IS A STRAIGHTFORWARD ARRANGEMENT. THERE ARE AD-LIB PIANO AND TRUMPET SOLOS, AND AD-LIB DRUM FILLS TO KICK THE LAST CHORUS. SAMPLE  Eb
939-D 12th Street Rag
Sax Quintet
Saxophone quintet (SATTB) with rhythm section, but can be used without the rhythm section. It is a 1920's style chart---shades of Russ Morgan or Paul Whiteman? There are as-written solos for the soprano lead and the 1st tenor. A fun chart!  SAMPLE  
798-R 50's Rock Medley This arrangement is played pretty straight. Nothing very Jazzy, but with some nice harmonies. This piece has a very nice blues piano interlude in between choruses. Basic chord progressions (with some subtle (Heh! Heh!) modifications). Our audiences are getting older so throwing a in little old-time rock doesn't hurt. Includes: Silhouette, You Send Me, Oh! Donna, Oldies But Goodies, etc. For Alto, Tenor, Bari (can be dropped), Trumpet, Trombone (can be dropped), Piano and rhythm.  SAMPLE  
 4-W Again    
801-R A Dream Is A Wish
(Your Heart Makes)
Bossa! Bossa is coming back, big time! The tune is vintage Disney, but the arrangement is not. I love the piano and rhythm section in this one. Of course, the horns are not bad either. It is always fun to do a tune that people recognize but in a different way than they have ever heard it before.  For: Alto, Tenor, Trumpet, and Rhythm.  
804-V A Gift of a Thistle
(For the Love of a Princess)
String Quartet
String Quartet. This a lovely sumptuous Celtic melody that was a special request and has become a favorite at weddings. The melody is mostly in the Flute (or Violin I) but the cello gets a substantial solo in the middle as a counterpoint to the flute. SAMPLE  
824-V A Gift of a Thistle
(For the Love of a Princess)
Sax Quartet
Saxophone Quartet.  Otherwise SAA.  
 459-D Ain't Misbehavin' SWINGS NICELY AT A MEDIUM TEMPO. SOLOS FOR TRUMPET AND PIANO. SAMPLE
 641-R Ain't No way to Treat a Lady SLOW ROCK BALLAD. FOR ALTO, TENOR, TROMBONE, TRUMPET, AND RHYTHM. Bb
 460-D Ain't She Sweet
Vocal
THESE ARE NOT MICKEY MOUSE CHARTS. OK I LIED; THIS ONE IS, A LITTLE. THE SUB-TITLE TELLS IT ALL---"WITH APOLOGIES TO SHEP FIELDS AND HAL KEMP." THE MIDDLE CHORUS IS A GANG VOCAL. THIS IS VERY DANCEABLE, AND FUN TO PLAY IF YOU DON'T TAKE IT TOO SERIOUSLY. SAMPLE
 689-D (The) Air Force Song 
Service Songs of the 
United States Military
THIS MEDLEY INCLUDES CEREMONIAL "RUFFLES AND FLOURISHES," "THE ARMY GOES ROLLING ALONG," "THE MARINES HYMN," "ANCHORS AWEIGH," "THE AIR FORCE SONG," AND "SEMPER PARATAS" (COAST GUARD).

THEY WILL WORK WITH A 3-HORN MINIMUM INSTRUMENTATION OF CLARINET, TRUMPET, TENOR OR TROMBONE, AND RHYTHM. THE SONGS ARE PRESENTED IN OFFICIAL DOD ORDER, BUT THEY CAN BE PLAYED IN ANY ORDER OR INDIVIDUALLY BECAUSE EACH SONG IS INTRODUCED WITH A SHORT DRUM CADENCE. A GREAT OPENER FOR GIGS INVOLVING VETERANS, ACTIVE MILITARY, AND PATRIOTIC ORGANIZATIONS. MARCHING BAND STYLE--NOT FOR DANCING. SAMPLE  
 5-W Alexander's Ragtime Band 
Dixie
DIXIELAND.  UP TEMPO ARR. OF THIS OLD STANDARD  
763-M Alaskan Rag
Sax Quartet
Saxophone Quartet. Alaskan Rag, Joseph Lamb (1959) A very relaxed rag with some unusual rhythms. The opening beat of the first strain is---a rest! There are many cross-bar ties that give it a mellow syncopation. This arrangement is dedicated to the Royal City Sax Quartet. Scored for SATB. Key: Ab/Db  SAMPLE  
805-V All I Ask Of You
String Quartet
String Quartet. From the 1988 release of "Phantom of the Opera", this is essentially a duet between the Flute (or Violin I) and the Violin (Violin II) just as the song is a duet between Christine and Raoul in the movie. There are several places where the tempo can be "bent" for more dramatic affect. This is a real crowd pleaser at receptions and corporate dinner music gigs. SAMPLE  
 700-S All of Me 
Vocal
(standard S instrumentation) THIS MEMORABLE STANDARD IS ARRANGED AS EITHER AN INSTRUMENTAL OR OPTIONAL VOCAL. ENSEMBLE PARTS HAVE AN IMPROVISED FEELING. MODERATELY DIFFICULT.   C
 6-W All of Me    
 7-BB All There Is, Is Lonely AN “-O“ ARRANGEMENT. KEYS ARE A LITTLE STRANGE WITH A MODULATION GOING INTO "C", THEN BACK TO CONCERT KEY "G”, WITH A FINAL MODULATION NEAR THE END. THIS ONE KIND OF FEATURES THE PIANO-BUT IT'S A VERY DANCEABLE BALLAD.  
 8-BB All There Is, Is Lonely 
Vocal
AN “-O“ ARRANGEMENT. LOST MY LYRIC SHEET ON THIS ONE, ANYBODY GOT ONE?  
 701-S All the Things You Are  ARRANGED FOR RHYTHM SECTION AND FOUR HORNS: (1) TRUMPET OR ALTO, (2) ALTO, (3) TENOR, AND (4) TROMBONE OR BARI SAX. LARGELY LINEAR WRITING, WITH HIGH AND LOW INSTRUMENTS WORKING IN TEAMS. MODERATELY DIFFICULT. Ab
 702-S All the Things You Are 
   Sax Quartet
ARRANGED FOR RHYTHM SECTION AND SAXOPHONE QUARTET: SATB OR AATB. LARGELY LINEAR WRITING, WITH HIGH SAXES AND LOW SAXES WORKING IN TEAMS. MODERATELY DIFFICULT. Ab
 298-T All the Things You Are  A TROMBONE QUINTET CHART THAT CAN BE PLAYED WITH OR WITHOUT RHYTHM.  A NEW ARRANGER (TO US) AND A VERY GOOD ONE.  SAMPLE  
 298-SQ All the Things You Are 
 Sax Quintet
THE SAME AS ABOVE, ONLY FOR A SAXOPHONE QUINTET OR QUARTET. BY THE WAY THIS IS VERY NICELY DONE!  
 9-T Alley Cat A VERY GOOD ARRANGEMENT OF AN OVERPLAYED TUNE.  
 10-O Almost Bunny GREAT ARRANGEMENT  
 11-O Alone With You YOU COULD TAKE 20 OF THESE CHARTS AND PUT TOGETHER A TWO HOUR (OR MORE) SHOW, FOR LESS THAN YOU GET PAID FOR THE GIG. (I HOPE)  
 477-D Always-Medley STRAIGHT FORWARD MEDLEY OF TRADITIONAL WALTZES WITH NO SOLOS. "ALWAYS", "TOGETHER", "CAROLINA MOON", AND "I LOVE YOU TRULY". SAMPLE  
 525-BB Always-Medley A “-D“ ARRANGEMENT. THE SAME TUNES AS ABOVE, BUT AN ENTIRELY DIFFERENT ARRANGEMENT. THIS CHART WAS DONE STRICTLY FOR DANCING--NOTHING FANCY--AND EASY TO PLAY. HAS LEAD CLARINET, GLENN MILLER STYLE, IN THE BARI SAX PART. SOLOS FOR 1st TROMBONE AND 1st TENOR.  .SAMPLE  
 12-W Am I Blue?    
 13-R Amazing Grace This great piece was just rewritten to be more in a New Orleans style.  Not necessarily Dixie but with some of those influences.  It has a piano solo first 16 bars very slow and simple with a little help from the bass and with the guitar (if you want) doing a little arpeggio background.  Then the clarinet (or alto if you wish) comes in with an up-tempo lead followed by the tenor and trumpet and then back to a very moving and slow finish.  For clarinet, tenor, trumpet, and rhythm. Each time a new horn comes in with the lead there is a modulation that the arranger chose to write with accidentals instead of show multiple key changes.  
Comment:  That's his choice, but kind of lazy I think.
Key: Eb
 
949-M Amazing Grace
Sax Quartet/trio/vocal
This one is for Sax Trio plus a Tenor singer. Highest note for the tenor is Ab above middle C, which requires an above-average tenor. This has also been performed with a trumpet playing the vocal line, so there's a Bb Melody part. The same part could be played by a clarinet or soprano sax. The trio is pretty flexible. Part 1 can be Sop or Alto, Part 2 can be Alto or Tenor, Part 3 can be Tenor or Bari. This arrangement uses all 7 verses by John Newton, many of which are seldom heard today. In addition to the traditional "New Britain" hymn tune, two verses use the hymn tune "Crimond."  
 731-M American Beauty Rag
Sax Quartet
Saxophone Quartet-- One of Joseph Lamb’s best rags, and one of my most challenging arrangements. The parts for the top 3 horns are highly syncopated throughout, and while the Bari part is less syncopated, it has some large jumps and few breaks, so you gotta keep it hoppin’. Scored for SATB or AATB. Bass Sax can replace the Bari. Key: Eb/Ab  SAMPLE  
 289-W American Patrol A GREAT ARRANGEMENT. ALWAYS WELL RECEIVED.  
 689-D Anchors Away
 Service Songs of the 
United States Military

THEY WILL WORK WITH A 3-HORN MINIMUM INSTRUMENTATION OF CLARINET, TRUMPET, TENOR OR TROMBONE, AND RHYTHM. THE SONGS ARE PRESENTED IN OFFICIAL DOD ORDER, BUT THEY CAN BE PLAYED IN ANY ORDER OR INDIVIDUALLY BECAUSE EACH SONG IS INTRODUCED WITH A SHORT DRUM CADENCE. A GREAT OPENER FOR GIGS INVOLVING VETERANS, ACTIVE MILITARY, AND PATRIOTIC ORGANIZATIONS. MARCHING BAND STYLE--NOT FOR DANCING. SAMPLE  
 635-R Andy JUST A FUN LITTLE SEND UP OF THE ANDY GRIFFITH THEME. ALTO, TENOR, BARI, TRUMPET, BONE, PIANO & RHYTHM. TENOR/BONE/BARI OPTIONAL.  
 14-BB Angel Eyes AN “-O“ ARRANGEMENT. THIS CHART WAS DONE IN THE EARLY 70s FOR STAN KENTON. FEATURES THE ALTO BOTH ON THE "AS IS " SOLO AND THE AD LIB SOLO. ALSO HAS AN INTERESTING "KENTON TRUMPET PATTERN" WITH HARMON MUTES AND SOME GOOD DISSONANCES! AN "EASY READ" OF A NICE, GENTLE BALLAD.  
832-BB Angel Eyes An "-O" Arrangement. A great ballad featuring the Lead Alto with the solo and an ad-lib section, as well.  This is a very "Kentonesque" chart, especially with the background harmon trumpet figures.  
 686-D Angel Eyes SLOW BLUESY BALLAD. IT CAN BE USED WITHOUT THE TROMBONE AND 2ND TRUMPET, THOUGH IT DOES SOUND BETTER WITH BOTH. ALSO AVAILABLE FOR JAZZ OCTET (ALTO, TENOR, BARI, TRUMPET, BONE, AND RHYTHM). SAMPLE  Eb
686-D Angel Eyes

 628-R Anything Goes 
Dixie
DIXIE. IN THE TRADITIONAL DIXIE STYLE. FOR TRUMPET, CLARINET, TENOR, BONE, AND RHYTHM. THIS SONG HAS A VERY INTERESTING AND UNIQUE INTRO, WITH A LITTLE DIFFERENT CHORD PROGRESSION. DIFFERENT IS GOOD!!!  
 541-J Anything Goes FOR TRUMPET, TENOR, BARI, BONE AND RHYTHM.  WALTZ C
950-M April Fool Rag
Sax Quartet
Saxophone Quartet  Jean Schwartz, SATB/AATB, Key D minor/F major. This rag alternates between the minor and major, and doesn't always go where you think it should, in keeping with its title. Premiere performance by the Royal City Saxophone Quartet in Theatre 311, Listowel, Ontario in April (of course!) 2009.   
 263-BB April in Paris AN “-R“ ARRANGEMENT.  A NICE CHART. Note:  Like a lot of arrangers this one does not do drum parts.  (Drummers--excuse me--percussionists...always do their own thing anyway.) There are 3 drum solos in this chart.  They are noted on the piano part.  
951-M Arctic Sunset
Sax Quartet
Saxophone Quartet  A Joseph Lamb rag for SATB or AATB. Key C/F. Joseph Lamb stretched the Rag form in this composition by putting a Serenade as the third section, followed by a faster Allegretto to give it a rousing finish.  
 665-D Are You Lonesome Tonight 
Waltz
THE ARRANGER SAYS THIS IS A "REQUEST CHART". NOTHING FANCY, IT STARTS IN C AND GOES TO Db FOR THE ENDING. THIS IS A VERY EASY TO PLAY AND STRAIGHTFORWARD TREATMENT OF THE SLOW ELVIS WALTZ. TENOR AND MUTED TRUMPET SOLOS. SAMPLE

(in "C") with short solos for trumpet and tenor sax (in Eb). Written for alto, tenor, bari, 2 trumpets, bone (w/optional 2nd bone)., and rhythm section., Up-tempo and swings--but then, if it didn't it wouldn't be "A Train!"
 
952-M Augustan Club
Sax Quartet-Waltz
Saxophone Quartet.  Augustan Club Waltz. A Joplin Waltz for SATB. Key Bb.
Relatively easy, but lots of room for expression, plus a Grandioso ending.
 
871-D Auld Lang Syne Written for 3 saxes (ATB), 2 trumpets, 2 bones (2nd optional), and rhythm. Starts as a ballad in Eb for the first couple of choruses, then goes to an up-beat swing tempo in F. The last ("shout") chorus is in Bb. Features tenor ad-lib solos in both tempos. It isn't Lombardo, but has enough clichés to satisfy any ardent Glenn Miller devotee. Happy New Year!  Sample Eb/F/Bb
301-W Auld Lang Syne If you play a New Years gig you must have this one.

Saxophone Quintet plus rhythm (piano and or guitar, bass, and drums).   Otherwise SAA.  
836-R Bare Necessities
Dixie
Dixieland.  This tune from the "Jungle Book" works wonderfully as a "Traditional Jazz" style chart. It has an imaginative intro with all of the comping, counter-melody, and other great stuff going on. It's one of those kind of arrangements that Roscoe Darling used to tell Andy of Mayberry to..."Just jump in where you can and hang on!"  Clarinet, tenor, trumpet, bone and rhythm.  
893-R Barnum & Bailey Waltz Waltz. A little circus, a little polka and a great piano part. Actually a very nice arrangement and a lot of fun to play. Up-tempo and has a pretty great rhythm part!  SAMPLE

733-M Bethena
Sax Quartet
Saxophone Quartet.   A syncopated concert waltz by Scott Joplin. This piece has several different sections and gives the performers many opportunities to vary the mood. Each horn gets its chance to have the melody. Unlike many ragtime pieces, the rhythm is not overly complex, making this a good piece for players of moderate ability, though the chromatic sections and several key changes may be challenging. Scored for SATB or AATB. Bass Sax can replace Bari. Key: Eb/Gb/Db/Bb  SAMPLE  
837-R Big Noise from Winnetka There are no drumsticks beating the melody on the bass strings on this one, but otherwise a damn fine chart. Actually you can add that most famous partnership of drums and stand-up bass very easily. For alto, tenor, bari or bone, trumpet, and rhythm.

 661-D (The Lullaby Of) BIRDLAND THIS CHART NEEDS THE TROMBONE AND 2nd TRUMPET. SHORT AD-LIB SOLOS FOR 2nd TENOR, 2nd TRUMPET, AND BONE. CLARINET REQUIRED FOR THE 1st TENOR. NOTHING HEAVY HANDED, JUST NICE LIGHT SWING. SAMPLE  
 706-S BIRTH OF THE BLUES Vocal (standard S instrumentation) ONE OF THE MOST FREQUENTLY REQUESTED SONGS, THIS ARRANGEMENT IS A VOCAL FEATURE COMPLETE WITH VERSE AND CHORUS. MODERATELY DIFFICULT.   F/G
855-R Blazing Saddles A classic movie piece. Full concert band style intro with a lightly swung chorus and back into a concert band ending. I love the movie and I love this arrangement. Written for a combo but is quite able to fulfill the style of the Count Basie Orchestra in the Movie. Middle chorus can be repeated for solos or used as a vocal. For Alto, Tenor, Bone or Bari, Trumpet, and rhythm. (A very nice bass part on this one.) Key is "C"  SAMPLE C
 734-M Blue Grass Rag
Sax Quartet
Saxophone Quartet. A laid-back rag by Joseph F. Lamb that should not be played too quickly. The interplay among the instruments makes this piece sound like a front-porch conversation among friends on a lazy summer afternoon (…in Kentucky?). Scored for SATB. Key: Ab/Db  SAMPLE  
 466-D BLUE HAWAII A LUSH FULL SOUND WITH A BONE LEAD OVER THE TENORS. THE LEAD IS CUED IN THE 1st TENOR IN CASE THE BONE DIDN'T MAKE IT BACK FROM INTERMISSION! TENOR AND PIANO SOLOS. SAMPLE  Bb
 265-BB BLUE BOSSA AN “-R“ ARRANGEMENT. NO CHORD SYMBOLS ON THIS . BUT IT IS A PIANO FEATURE THAT WORKS VERY WELL.

 303-W BLUE PRELUDE             
758-R Blues Bros Medley Straight out of the Blues Brothers. "Stand By Your Man" and then "Rawhide".  I can't hear either one of these tunes without picturing those beer bottles breaking against the protective fence in front of the band (stand-ins for the "Good Ol' Boys") in the movie. A quite fun and entertaining arrangement! For Alto, Tenor, Trumpet. Piano, and rhythm.  
 286-SQ BLUESETTE ARRANGED FOR A SAX QUARTET OR QUINTET.   WELL DONE , WORKS NICELY WITH OR WITHOUT RHYTHM. SAMPLE  
 305-W BLUE SKIES    VOCAL    
862-R Blue Velvet For young lovers of an older nature...This is the old rock-n-roll favorite with more modern chord progressions. Uses nicely done harmonies and has the melody going back and forth between trumpet and the alto with the bone, or bari, playing a neat counter-melody. A slow buckle polishing tempo for that slow dance everyone asks for. Alto, tenor (can be dropped), bari or bone, trumpet, and rhythm.  SAMPLE  
948-D Boplicity An octet (trumpet, trombone, alto, tenor, bari, piano, bass, drums) chart of a Miles Davis tune in F.  Ad lib solos for trumpet and tenor sax.  SAMPLE  
838-R Bossa Ballad An original Bossa arrangement. Very laid-back with a section for solos. Stan Getz would've loved this one. (Ed:  At least we think he would have liked it.  He was a difficult man to figure out.)  For alto, tenor, trumpet, bone (if needed), and rhythm.  
788-R Brasil (Brazil) Latin/Samba! I love this arrangement. When you play it everyone wants to dance to the rhythm. The piano part has the traditional Latin rhythm and of course chord progressions so that your very own piano professional can play it like they want. The horn parts are outstanding!

957-M Brown Derby 2
Sax Quartet
Saxophone Quartet by Joseph Lamb, SATB/AATB, Keys: F/Bb, A later rag by Joseph Lamb, published posthumously by his daughter Patricia Lamb Conn.

 224-W THE DARKTOWN STRUTTERS' BALL Dixie DIXIELAND. NOT A POLITICALLY CORRECT TITLE, BUT A REALLY GOOD CHART.  
810-R DayDreams I love this arrangement. (of course, I wrote it). It is a slow bluesy 4/4 instrumental love song. As it has been played it has been very much appreciated by the audience. There is a middle chorus that can be open for solos. My personal preference is a 16 bar tenor solo followed by a 16 bar guitar solo. But you can do anything you want with it. You will like it.

959-M Deep River
Sax Quartet
Saxophone Quartet.  A traditional spiritual, AATB, Keys Eb/Gb. Written to the memory of a dear friend, with a countermelody that hint at his only shortcoming: he attended the arch-rival of my college! His school's alma mater is also a hymn tune, so this arrangement is suitable for a church service or just as a mellow spot in a concert. I wouldn't dare quote his school's fight song, would I?   
 49-BB DELTA DAWN

String Quartet
String Quartet. This is an arrangement of a "Sting" piece that was inspired by a recording that the London Symphony made of this tune back in the 90's. Not an easy chart and pretty demanding rhythmically, especially for the inner voices. But you can do it...You know you can!  SAMPLE

This arrangement was premiered by the Royal City Sax Quartet on October 3, 2003. Arranged for SATB or AATB. Bass sax can replace the Bari. Key: Db/Ab   SAMPLE
