    Trombone solos with band

    Have just looked at the back of the Essential Dyke Volume 9 and Fantastic Polka is listed as manuscript, arr. Wilkinson. Also, for my two pennys worth, Blessed Assurance is a belting peice, as too is the Geldard arrangement of Londonderry Air. Actually, now I mention it, ALL of Bill...

    Brass Quintet Openers

    Does anyone have any suggestions for a brass quintet opener in real big band style. I love Sparkling Diamonds by Sandy Smith, but that hasn't been reduced to quintet. Does anyone know of any similar items for quintet?

    Best insults to players from conductors

    More confusing put down than anything but in Pines of Rome I got the following from the Conductor: 'Are you using wrong fingers son?' I play trombone... Also, on a tight concert stage the solo trom player didn't have enough room for his slide and ended up pointing at the audience (and then...

    Ah right...might as well close this thread down and I'll go and have a nosey at that one! Sorry.

    Ultmate CD

    Not sure if this thread has been done or not, but if you were able to pick a CD programme to record, what would you choose?

    Who has a quintet as part of their band and why?

    I play in a brass quintet that is made up of past and present members of a youth band. People in the group are aged 24-16 but we, as MoominDave said, are not in any way connected to the youth band. It all started as I was (and still am, by choice it has to be said) brass bandless but still...

    Brass quintet music

    I was wondering if anyone can help me please? I play in a brass quintet and we have lots of traditional chamber music and the like in our repertoire. We're looking to expand our range of pieces with some big band style items and more modern music. Does anyone know a good place to find this? (I...

    What was your first solo?

    Panis Angelicus on Tenor Trom. Wandrin' Star on Bass Trom. And vocally, Any Dream Will Do as a 10 year old, which I only did because I thought singers got the best girlfriends!

    What car do you drive??

    What do I drive? Apart from my neighbours mad with my incessant tooting on my trom? A corsa design. Christened 'ultra' as it's 'ultra blue' - with optional sound effects provided by the driver when going around corners.

    Trombone Solo "Blue John"

    I love that solo! It's up there with Blessed Assurance for me! I rehearsed it with a band a few times and it's great fun. I was lucky enough to acoompany Jon Pippen playing it as well a couple of years back. No real tips for you sorry, but enjoy it 'cos it's a cracker and will go down really well!

    Annoying moments

    "Also bass trombonists who think that they are soloists!" You mean they aren't soloists? :eek: I knew I'd been going wrong somewhere!;) This didn't overly annoy me, but when I was in a band, if you were 5/10 minutes late due to work (despite letting the MD know you'd be late) you subjected...

    How are your team doing?

    Crewe Alex...just about pipping the Vale in the race to be the highest local team in League 1, but 20th place isn't much to write home about. With the pre season signings we made I had high hopes, but they have been swiftly dashed. Who is running the team? Dario or Steve Holland? The fans...
