Arrived at our community practice rooms for our weekly practice and found that the door was forced another forced inside and some gear missing. Keyboard a couple of powered monitors, an amp and worst of all the 1st tenor pack. Over the years the various generations have built up a library of 500 charts without copies. I had been worried and 200 had been copied but we've lost 300.A lot of them are not in use but we have lost a selection of our current catalogue. Any good lines to find good, original charts of the old masters of swing etc? We are missing only one part but I don't think you can buy one part. We are looking for charts fom the '30s to the 80's Bulk buying from the right selection.

Try http://www.the-noteables.com/ (you'll have to register). I've been dealing with Hy for years and have purchased a bunch of parts and arrangements from him.

That really stinks.

I was going to say that our high school as one of the largest 'Jazz' libraries in the state and I might be able to find a few of the parts you need there, but it looks like the guys have found better resources for you.

I know the guy who runs "yestertunes." Great guy - I've seen his full collection first-hand at his house. A good source for written arrangements, lead sheets, chord-charts. etc. DAVE

You may be able to find the parts here with Jeff Flagg. I can very highly recommend Jeff and his library of over 13,000 tunes. I have purchased many charts and parts there from Jeff and am a very satisfied customer.

You can contact Jeff at: jpflagg AT uts DOT cc DOT utexas DOT edu. Jeff will email you a list of his library.

Good luck and best wishes.

Thanks guys for the leads. I'll get a list together and follow them up. The idea of being able to get just the one part instead of the whole chart is a bit of a financial relief.

The suggestions above are good ones for obtaining individual parts. These three sources probably have three to five thousand charts more than I have, but I know I have several hundred that they don't. You're wecome to send me a list of what you're still missing.
