Hi Everyone! Can anyone suggest any decent bass trombone solos? Preferably without any stupidly high 2nd trombone parts as we're swapping! I'd really appreciate any suggestions. Thanks.

Hi Alicia.

How about " I only have eyes for you" arranged by Alan Fernie. It's a crowd pleaser and relatively easy to play with Pedal B flats being the lowest notes.

Also how about "The passing years" by Kenneth Cooke. This is a Salvation Army piece and may be difficult to get from SP&S as it dates back to about 1960.

Happy hunting!

Have quite enjoyed playing " Rainy Day in Rio"(Geoff Richards). Check out Douglas Yeo/Doyen CD "Proclomation" with Black Dyke as rainy day and "Share my Yoke" both on there. There's also "Hall of the Mountain King" and " If I were a Rich Man".

On the contrary, out of print music from The Salvation Army's Brass Band Journals (Unity, Triumph, General and Festival Series) can be supplied as high quality re-prints of the original publications. Telephone the Mail Order Department on 01933 445445 and whoever takes your call will be able to help you.

Andrew Mackerith - Swing Low
Is a nice solo - but very hard, worth bearing in mind. When I requested ideas here for a show-offy solo for the Yeovil contest a number of years ago, that's the one that was suggested here and that I then performed. Not sure what the requested skill level is. If searching for it, note that the arranger is spelled "Mackereth".

There's another Swing Low bass trombone solo version too, by Alan Fernie, which is substantially more straightforward.
