What about Orange Juice?!?!?! :roll:
I'll stick up for flugs, being an ex-one. But I've since seen the Eb light 8)


Best solo ever

Golden slippers is a great solo but as a cornet player I think it just goes on too long, esp when playing it. Carnival of Venice has to be the best. Everyone plays it at some point, it has numerous arrangement and is available for all instruments. It has stood the test of time and is always a crowd pleaser, even if butchered on some park job. :p

As a Sop player, should say On with The Mot, but I never tire of listening to Napoli. Sheperd's version Webster (sorry)

I'm gonna have to stick up to the percussion sections up and down the country here....
I think the best solos are percussion solos ;-)
Variations for Percussion... Rodney Newton, does it for me after I saw/heard Simone Rebello play it at Cornwall Youth Band a few years ago....


I never knew so few solos had actually been written ??

Perhaps some of our composer friends ought to start writing some solos if this is the only choice we have ?
