The focus of the Jazz Lines Publications series is the restoration and preservation of historic jazz arrangements. We have established relationships with many performers and arrangers (or their families and estates) to provide the most accurate and legally produced historic arrangements available anywhere. We start with acquiring the original, hand-written scores and parts. Each arrangement is prepared by Rob DuBoff, Dylan Canterbury, and Jeffrey Sultanof, who also write a forward containing historic background information and performance notes. The Jazz Lines Publications catalog of over 500 charts has become one of the most important living resources in the jazz world, presenting the music of giants ranging from Frank Sinatra to Charlie Parker to Ella Fitzgerald to Dizzy Gillepsie to Antonio Carlos Jobim and dozens more, and in the precise form the music was written, recorded, and performed.
All arrangements are printed on 80# archival quality paper containing at least 50% recycled content, of which 10% is from post-consumer waste sources. In addition, our paper is FSC-certified (Forest Stewardship Council) and processed without the use of chlorine. We are committed to providing the best arrangements on the market today in the most sustainable way possible.
We currently have publishing agreements with Oliver Nelson, Jr., Terry Gibbs, Wynton Marsalis, Tom Kubis, John Fedchock, Tom Kubis, Don Menza, and Dave Pell, as well as the estates of Frank Sinatra, Benny Carter, Gil Evans, Mary Lou Williams, Gerry Mulligan, Rob McConnell, Eddie Sauter, Frank Foster, Al Cohn, Tadd Dameron, George Russell, Duke Pearson, Art Pepper, Manny Albam, Med Flory, and many others.
We do have a printed catalog available of our arrangements.
