Big Band Christmas Charts

Big Band Christmas Charts by Jim Martin

Jingle Bells

Arranger: Jim Martin

This chart is a straight ahead swinger that features short solos in trumpet 2 and trombone 2. Trumpet ranges are conservative for the most part. The chart also features a 16 bar saxophone soli. Fun to play around the holiday season (or any season!) when you need a happy swinging tune to play.

NOTE: The audio is generated in Finale and is not a “live” recording. Consequently, the drum part will be mostly missing. Use the recording below and view score here (opens in new window) to get a good idea of how the chart will sound.

Silent Night

Arranger: Jim Martin

This arrangement is a fresh look at an old tune. The time signature is 4/4 and the style is bossa nova. Lots of alternate changes in this one, so it is fun to solo over as well. Trumpet range is very conservative so this one can be played by younger bands too.

Christmas Combo (4 Horns and Rhythm)

O Christmas Tree
(revised 9/21/2014)

Arranger: Jim Martin

This arrangement of O Christmas Tree is arranged as a jazz waltz for 4 horns: Instrumentation is: Tpt (and flugel), Alto Sax, Tenor Sax, Trombone, Gtr, Pno, Bass, Drums. Lots of reharmonization in this one and there is plenty of room for soloing for everyone in the group. Includes a written solo in alto sax as well as an open solo section for other players. This will take some rehearsal, so I would advise not reading it down on the gig. It is designed as a jazz piece, so keep that in mind when programming it on your Christmas gigs. Listen to a finale generated audio to the right.
