    I want to adventure into the local brass competition (or as close as we've got!). However, as until now I've purely played SA music (except dep. a couple times) I don't know of anything that would be suitable. I want something fairly taxing (but not too dificult as it will be a first time contesting), and I have until February to learn it! Any suggestions?

    Which solos do you normally play, Jon?

    Well it's been a while - but the last one I did was "Way beyond the blue", "Mighty to keep", and "Tucker" are the most recent ones. But never for competition!

    Maybe some of the Herbert Clarke solos might suit you then ... e.g.,

    - The Debutante
    - From The Shores Of The Mighty Pacific
