Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom White


Bring some bare-faced cheek to your next gig with this playful little foot-tapper! Featuring original grooves to get you and your audience in the mood before the cheeky theme is set free�. lighthearted fun is had by all as the lead line is swapped between you, interspersed with pepperings of blue harmony and bubbling jazz phrases. After the first episodes, the addictive groove returns, spiced with a ruder tinge, leading to a glorious ascent into a higher key for a reprise of that tune! Ultimately, the groove kicks in once more before the melody is transformed into a kaleidoscopic maelstrom, escalating through keys and touching parts never before reached in a trombone quartet! Back down to earth we come as a punchy coda brings the piece to a satisfied close�.. until next time! (Warning: you will be whistling this one!)

"Richard, your arrangements worked a treat! The delegates at the Brass Band Summer School 2009 (Bromsgrove, UK) loved them - 20 trombones in all - and funnily enough, some of the delegates also brought some of your arrangements so it was a kind of 'Turned on Music' week ;-) Thanks ever so much for all your help getting the dots to me. I'll have no hesitation recommending your arrangements to fellow 'bonists. Congratulations on such a fine service"
