    In possibly one of the greatest ever tMP colloborations ;) Pat Herak (BBCbari) will be performing the Eb bass solo "Transatlantic" written by Ben Tubb (HBB).

    This event is all part of the Welwyn Garden City Band Concert on Sunday the 19th June, from 3:00 pm under the baton of Dave Jones at the bandstand in
    Enfield. The first half of the concert will be film music, while the second
    have will have a "last night of the proms" theme and include this World Premiere.

    So come out and support this tMP duo!!

    (As a personal note, I'd like to thank Ben for writing the piece and say that while it is probably the hardest thing I've ever played, it is one of the funnest I've played as well...oh and watch out for the cadenza;))

    Hehe... should be good, although I'm scared I might cry from laughter in the cadenza!

    Congrats BBCBari + HBB on a fantastic premiere yesterday! Even in the sweltering heat...

    And also to HBB who had to play solo horn (you have a lovely tone, btw...!)

    Would loved to have gone, but there's no events calendar or list of gigs on the WGC website so I didn't know about the concert!

    Next time perhaps!

    I tried to upload a recording myself (its a bit dodgy with lots of background noise, being a park gig and all), but it did not work.

    I sent John a Copy via e-mail...so hopefully it'll get on here (although it may not because of the poor quality)

    Hope that helps
