    Annie Laurie and Misty are lovely on the trombone. Although I've only heard them with band accompaniment I'm sure you could get a piano accompaniment version. Or you could go with good old favourite The Acrobat.. cannae beat it! ;)

    Thought you said not to high!!!......remember Tommy Dorsey played his theme in concert D for a Brass band player you would start on Dsharp 3rd line and then works up to the octave above....

    yeah, I'd need to work on that one. But I have a recording of Alessi playing, and it sounds so beautiful on trombone.

    Liebeslied by Kriesler. Play from the original violin copy- goes up to a c but is nice to play. Lindberg recorded it on one of his early CDs. There's a transposed/arranged version around but I'd avoid that - its in the wrong key and sounds it.

    Tom Bowling has been arranged for trombone solo (brass band or piano accompaniment) By Kenneth Downie.

    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!

    Goes to Bbs and Cs above the stave (brass band notation).

    How high is too high?

    Local music festival. I'm entering in the grade 7+ class, so the piece should ideally be of that difficulty level.
    Was thinking 1st mvmt of Rimsky-Korsakov concerto.
    What is too high? Would't want to go above top C really.
    Maybe something jazzy like Misty would go down well. Can anyone recommend a good arrangement of that?

    Concert Bb (brass band C) is more within my comfort zone.
