Trumpet Spleen

Description: A slightly sentimental pop ballad featuring a skilled trumpeter with good range. The piece starts in an easy-feel 8th-note pop style, that turns into a 16th-beat gospel feel in the solo part. After an interlude comes a shout part where the soloist has some high reaching to do, before returning to a reharmonised main theme and ending. The feature soloist part is written in Trumpet 4, so the main trumpet section consists of Tp 1 to 3 in a regular register and instrumentation. 4/4 meter throughout the piece. Notated key Bb.
