It’s ballad time. This chart will provide your alto player with the perfect alto sax ballad. Everything is very playable for young players---the melody is beautiful and lyrical, harmonies are lush, rhythms are easy, and lead trumpet range is to fourth space E. From the movie The Polar Express, "Hot Chocolate" is hot stuff. Based on the original recording, this one has been adapted for the young player by arranger Mike Lewis. No solos, modest ranges and a driving bass line make it move along. Mike offers two endings to make this chart effective all year round: one with the hip "Jingle Bells" quote and one without. This is a fun swinger loaded with energy. Check it out! This title is available in SmartMusic. (2:30) Show off the sensitive side of your ensemble with this ballad with no featured soloist. There is a brief 4-bar written trumpet melody; otherwise, it’s all ensemble blend with a lush texture, a double-time section and lead trumpet range is to written G on top of the staff. The drummer plays brushes and sticks, the band emotes and everybody sounds great. Arranged by Craig Skeffington, you’ll fall in love with this excellent chart. (3:40)

You’ll love this gorgeous ballad arranged by Dave Wolpe in two keys for flexibility. Vocal ranges: female key (low) of C, from G below middle C to third line B. Male key (high) of E-flat from B-flat below middle C to fourth space D, treble clef. Superb chart. (3:49) "Emily" is a beautiful waltz-certainly one of the finest melodies of our time by composer Johnny Mandel. Arranger Lisa DeSpain delivers a fine chart that will help you teach phrasing, how to connect the phrases, phrase contour, use of slurs, and vibrato. The melody is stated by trombone and tenor sax, written or ad lib solos are for trombone and cued for trumpet. Range is modest and the rhythm section can focus on the 3/4 feel. You'll enjoy this one. (3:03) Based on "Good King Wenseslas," this Victor López chart is set in a rock groove with a solo section for all winds that contains an optional written-out drumset solo. An easy-to-prepare and fun holiday chart! This title is available in SmartMusic.

A vocal chart and slow swing ballad at 70 BPM. The vocal range is G below middle C to A-flat second space. Includes optional lead parts for B-flat, E-flat, and bass clef instruments. (4:44) Here's a super swing chart for the younger player from arranger John Denton. From the MGM movie of the same name, this melody is well known to all ages. John has included a tenor solo with written solo provided and carefully kept the brass ranges and tempo quite reasonable keeping this chart accessible to this level. You'll really like the simple but clever harmonic twist and modulation that John included, and the swing figures are all logical and easy to teach. Singing in the Rain will make you happy again! Build confidence in your band with this revered melody as your players sharpen their skills playing jazz articulations and figures. With a swing feel all the way, Mike goes for all ensemble: no individual solos but lots of trading back and forth between soli sections. The rhythm section will easily handle the swing tempo, and your drummer will enjoy all the set-ups and fills. (3:50)
