Three of us on this forum will once again be the Trombone section on YABBs summer trip to USA & Canada in August.

1st - Neil Samuel
2nd -Tim Morgan
Bass - me

Can anybody out there recommend any decent new trombone trios as we've done the majority of the popular ones to death now (Frolic, Trombola, Dem Bones, Recipe, I will follow him etc etc) and need something a little more exciting.

Thanks

We've just started rehearsing a new trio called SLIDE RULE by Gareth J. Green. A very good, lively piece, written in 3/4 time. Plenty of work for the trombones and band.
It's Published by Yendell Music.

:wink:

At one of the "all star" bands at Uppermill the trombone team played Trumpets Wild. It worked really well. I've also heard Buglers holiday played by trombone trio.

When we were at Cambridge Heath the trombones used to play the cornet trio "The Veterans", which always used to go down well.

Rach,

You've only done it for 2 weekend trips - maybe you wont be so enthusiastic after playing it everyday for a full 2 week tour also !

Dont get me wrong - it's a great arrangement however having done it on the same tour 2 years ago then we really need something different.

Booooo!!!! :cry:

I don't really mind so much. I'm sure Jude & I won't be taking too much notice anyway!!!!!! That's such a bad idea putting us together on the back! ha ha ha!!!! :wink:

Pete Maunder ( New Zealand Symphony Orchestra) arranged "Don't go changing". Technically demanding but typically Pete - very musical.
Does anyone know if he published it / made it available?

Weve been playing Alan fernie's Sad & Blue recently

Not over difficult but great if you like the laid back stuff

We recorded Colin Bugby's funky trio 'Splat!' for him at our Christmas concert last year (before going straight on into 'Frosty the Snowman'...); it's superiorly cheesy but snappy with a definite 70s cop show theme feel - great fun and well worth a look, with solo sections for each of the three players. You can get it from his website, www.colinbugby.co.uk.

Is that okay Colin? :lol:

If you can get hold of it, Mark Freeh's arrangement of Holiday for trombones by Leroy Anderson is excellent - if its published, it may be in the Warner catalogue.

slides in swingtime is a great little jazzy trio by darrol barry, (we also dropped the bass bone down an octave where he was in unison with 2nd tromb to give it a bit more depth)
there is lots of scope with it eg drum feature, finger clicks etc :wink:

Thanks for the replies so far.

I've just been informed that there's a new trombone trio arrangement of It's Not Unusual (a la Tom Jones style) by Phil Lawrence (complete with instructions for the Solo Horn player to throw knickers at the soloists ! Are you ready for this Helen ? better take loads of spare pairs with you !!!).

Apparently it's reviewed in the Bandsman this week.

Anybody played it yet ?

cheers

Dobcross have recently been playing a couple of yellow copy trios called "The blades of Toledo" and "The 3 Tromboneers". Quality pieces and really quite tough. We have found that the "Blades" goes down really well.

We used to play "The Three Blades Of Toledo" quite a lot under Trevor Sharpe, and it always went down well - it is on one of the budget price re-release recordings of the Coldstream Band.
