The following is information for the sale of the late Benny Hollman’s musical library to be held on Sunday, February 26, 2017, at Arias Hall located at the Musicians Association of San Diego County, 1717 Morena Blvd. San Diego 92110, from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm.
The library has been “cataloged” as follows:
–Big band 10 charts for $100
–Little big band 15 charts for $100
–Combo 20 charts for $100
–Lead sheets 50 for $100
–Music books, scores, concert & march music, misc.
The music is being sold in “lots” so as to facilitate the sale of the inventory. The music is pre-packaged with titles on the outside of the containers. All proceeds go directly to Dorothy Hollman.
Some facts about the music:
1) Some of the charts are in “used” condition though legible. Conversely, some are in remarkable condition.
2) Some charts do not have piano or drums or bass but other parts cover them, i.e., a song may not have a piano part but will have a bass part with the chords written on it. Drums can use the lead trumpet part. Bass can use piano part for chords. This happens infrequently but it does happen.
3) Many charts don’t have vocal lead parts. Many of these tunes are ones that you may already be familiar with and are just looking for an arrangement for your horns or your vocalist already knows them. This mindset when perusing the arrangements will be most effective and least frustrating. Also, the tunes in need of vocals are clearly marked.
