James Bond Big Band Library

The James Bond Big Band Library is a collection of its famous themes, arranged for big band from the original motion picture scores by myself.

 

The charts were written to closely resemble the original music with small changes made to cover the abscence of strings. Most of the woodwind parts are on their "doubles" instead of saxes.

 

Goldfinger and Diamonds are Forever have two versions of each chart; one with the original key, and a transposed one that is less taxing on the vocalist's range.

 

As Bond movies went from the 1960s to the mid 70s and beyond, emphasis went away from the big band style and more into rhythm section focused rock. In these scores, the woodwinds and horns have less of a role. It should be noted that the majority of the offered charts come from the earlier half of the Bond movie timeline.

 

Please email if you have any questions. All sales, once pdfs are sent, are final. You can pay by check or PayPal. Add 3% per order for PayPal fees. 

 

The format for all of the charts are:

 

Score

Voice

Woodwind I (either Alto Sax, Flute, Opt. Alto Flute, or opt. Piccolo)

Woodwind II (either Alto Sax, or Flute)

Woodwind III (either Tenor Sax, or Clarinet)

Woodwind IV (either Tenor Sax, or Clarinet)

Woodwind V (either Bari Sax, Bass Clarinet, or Clarinet)

Trumpet/Flugelhorn I, II, III

Trombone I, II

Bass Trombone III

Guitar

Piano/Synth

Bass

Drum Set

Aux. Percussion

 

If you have a big band with saxophonists that cannot double on available woodwinds, or have slightly different configurations than available here,

SUBSTITUTIONS AND EXTRA PARTS CAN BE ARRANGED- ask for details

NEW! James Bond 4 Horn Small Group Charts

 

The Library has been expanded to include 4 Horn Charts for you to get the big band sound without the big band. The charts still play like the recorded versions, but with the following instruments:

 

Vocal

Trumpet I

Alto Sax or Flute II

Tenor Sax or Clarinet III

Trombone IV

Guitar

Piano

Bass

Drums

 

For a fee worked out between us, I can possibly make adjustments to these charts if your ensemble has a different horn format.

 

These are a great alternative to a bandleader or organizer who doesn't have the resources of a big band.
