These are probably the last of my big band scores. I have no soundbites to them, but give them a try anyway. If your band play any of them and have recordings, I could use them for short soundbites. Mostly normal big band line-up. All this music is free...but a donation to a charity, like Global Tree Planting Project would be appreciated.   Click on Download and then left click on the one you want on the new page.    Scroll down and click on Save linked content as...Alternatively you can print them straight off.   To refresh the page, click on Scored Changes logo (above, left) or press ctrl+F5

That's it - no more big band arrangements. If you've downloaded and played any of them, thank you so much. I admit they are not world-shattering charts, but I hope they are playable and that you have enjoyed playing them. That's what really matters.
