The Alan Parsons Project – Some Other Time

Flugelhorns in quasi-French horn mode once more. Really digging this song though, so it’s easy to get caught up in it and imagine myself in the horn section of a studio orchestra.

In the lower brass section, this is really a job for a bass trombone, but a baritone sax may be more readily available so I’ve transcribed charts for both.

Lenny Kravitz – Always on the Run

Losing count of how many times I’ve played this song from a badly-written chart. So I wrote out a good one. This is best suited to trumpet and alto sax, but I’ve included a chart for tenor sax in case that’s needed.

Monty Python – Pantomime Horses

I was asked for help finding a recording of this 5-bar wonder, for use at the 2018 London Pantomime Horse Race charity event on 16 December. The tune features, to the point of ridiculousness, in the Monty Python’s Flying Circus Pantomime Horses sketch.

I’ve no idea the true name for this jingle and was unable to find any trace of it anywhere, so with no apparent alternatives I recorded it myself as a one-man-band. Six parts plus the first two doubled. The faux tuba and trombone tracks (played on flugelhorn and slide trumpet respectively) were dropped an octave thanks to digital effects on my mixer. My understanding is that this recording is expected to be played ad nauseam at the London event.

I can’t imagine anyone will ever need or want this ever again. But someone did once, so here it is just in case history ever repeats itself.

Bobby Byrd – I Know You Got Soul

Transcribed for 2 trumpets, tenor sax, and trombone. The trombone part is also transposed and provided for a 2nd (optional) tenor sax, in case you find trombone players as scarce as I do.

I’ve included a transcription of Fred Wesley’s trombone solo, courtesy of Alex Leong’s magnificent work at trombonealex.com. Alex has some mighty fine trombone transcriptions on his site, so be sure to check them out and recognize his artistry!
