Collection Scope and Content Notes


The Sheet Music series contains written orchestrations, also called lead sheets or band arrangements, which were used by the studio musicians and/or by road musicians. As Garner did not read or write music, he never used these, but his groups did. Orchestrations are different from the handwritten lyrics or music composed by the original composer. Lead sheet arrangements are written by staff arrangers based on music provided by the producer and/or composer, and are then scored for the performing group.
