    Hoping to get some assistance.

    Am looking for a decent solo for trumpet and brass band. Want something listenable by average brass band audience but perhaps a bit different. To be accompanied by 2nd/3rd section band.

    Any thoughts and/or publishers?

  3. If your feeling brave "Virtuosity" is a very impressive one.
    It can be bought from studio music and this is a recording of it.

    If your not feeling that brave "People" is a much easier and slower piece i'm am not sure where it can be bought though.

    The first one that comes to mind from our publications is The Challenge by Eric Ball.
    Paul Archibald has recorded this with South London Fellowship Band on Mr Ball meets Mr Leidzen.

    There are also several in a Philip Smith series and I'll give details of these a little later.

    Thank you all - plenty to think about.

    Any more.

    WOB, is there a recording of Nocturne that you are aware of?

    There's a soundbite attached to the listing on the World of Brass website here.

    The whole track appears on Best by Farr and European Brass Band Championships 2006 CDs.

    Fun piece to play and definately a trumpet piece as oppose to a cornet piece. I know there is a band arrangement somewhere as Jim Watson recorded with Black Dyke I think.

    Trumpet solo with band

    Don't know if it would work but what about that old classic Satchmo? Just a suggestion-I think it would be great!
