    Hi Umchacha,

    Have you thought about something like Stardust or some more modern stuff? Are you looking at some brass band tradintional stuff with a piano accompaniment?

    I've recommended Tom Bowling arranged by Kenneth Downie in a different thread recently and do so again. It is available with piano or brass band accompaniment.

    This wonderful song is invariably featured in the last night of the BBC Promenade Concert series as it is included in Henry Wood's Fantasia on British Sea Songs. It is played as a cello solo and always provides one of the most sensitive, melancholic moments of the evening. It the trombone soloist rises to the challenge, there will not be a dry eye in the concert hall!

    How about these...

    Ballad for Trombone by Eric Banks (recorded by Brett Baker)
    In The Wee Small Hours Of The Morning arr Alan Fernie
    Over The Rainbow arr. Alan Fernie
    The Wind Beneath My Wings arr. Darrol Barry
    As If We Never Said Goodbye arr. Bill Geldard.

    All available from Just Music
    A lot of 'cheese' but not easy to play well!

    I was going to recommend Ken, as he has a lot of solos and brass ensembles. He writes good stuff and is a good guy. But low and behold, he logs on ahead me.

    That's me, a day late and £3456000 short ;)

    Some good suggestions from Yam681 I think - Over the Rainbow by Alan Fernie is a good one if a little lofty in places.

    There is a good arrangement of Blessed Assurance around - can't remember the arranger can any one help? - a little cheesy but still quite effctive slow melody
  10. I would like to purchase Tom Bowling with piano accom also in bass clef for trombone. Can you help me regarding what music company publish solo.

    That be John Iveson but there doesn't seem to be a version for Trombone and Piano.

    Just found this via a google search - as it is Just Brass there should be plenty of UK stockists, and it seems a very useful collection all round ;)

    Aye, I have that book, but the version of Londonderry Air in the book isn't the same one as the Brass/Wind band and Brass Ensemble versions.

    You couldn't tell me who the publisher and arrangers are can you?

    I've just recorded this with Cory - a lovely melody with the magic Downie touch!
