    Inspired by a misprint I saw on a CD cover (George Gershwin's 'It Ain't Necessarily Sop') I wonder what other song titles not originally conceived for brass could be made into 'brass' works by a swift 'misprint' or two....

    Horn Staccato (Dinicu)

    Embraceable Euph (Gershwin)

    Bass, You Is My Woman Now (Gershwin)

    Trombone Harvester (as originally performed by the Wurzels)

    Anything by Bari Manilow (Sopacabana, for instance)

    Any more?

    Serenade for Tenor Horn and Strings (Britten)

    I have a CD that lists as one of the tracks a COMET solo!

    Talking of which, has anyone on here ever played a pocket cornet? God, they're awful.... (or I'm awful at playing it... more likely the latter! ;-))

    Anything by the 'Cor'rs

    I Want To Scold Your Band (a favourite amongst conductors)
