    Might be worth you sending a PM to Major Morgan, who plays for R'bridge.

    I've got it, on cassette, and it's great stuff. "A Night in Tunisia" is down as being aranged by Sammy Nestico, which leads me to think they may have adapted an existing big band score for brass band.

    Don't know this version but we recorded a great version of it on our most recent CD 'Solid Silver'. It was arranged by our MD at the time, Kevin Belcher and featured Alan Morrison on the lead trumpet solo. I could sell you a copy for a tenner if you like!

    I´ve already done a transcription of that piece in 2002 for Århus Brass Band engagement with the famous sax player Benjamin Koppel and I hve later used it with a trumpet soloist... Its a great transcription and it works well...

    I made some other pieces for that concert as well:

    A Little Happiness - Sammy Nestico
    Mack The Knife - Kurt Weil
    John Brown´s Other Body - Woody Herman
