Big Band Jazz Charts

If you have a band and are interested in charts to perform, PRB's charts are available for
purchase.   In addition I have a library of about 1500 big band arrangements primarily from
the big band revival of the late 50's on.   Many are non published chart from the libraries of
Count Basie, Woody Herman, Les Elgart, Les Brown, Francy Boland and others.   
I DO NOT copy currently available published charts, but I have many in great condition,
professionally hand copied charts unavailable anywhere else.    A list of the library is
attached to this website with a link at the upper left.   Click on Big Band Library in Excel.
