Keith – 98.6

I’d always thought this was a jingle for a radio station. But it was a legitimate song and pop hit, back in the day.

The original recording features trombones that I had to replicate on flugelhorn. But here, for you, are transcriptions for both.

Stretch – Why Did You Do It?

Tom Bornemann tells a great story about this song on his blog Four Strings Basslessons, which I found while looking for a trumpet chart for this song. Well worth checking-out!

Of course, I never found a trumpet chart, so here are the fruits of my labor for you to enjoy. My chart is for both trumpet and tenor sax.

Sammy Davis Jr. – I’ve Gotta Be Me

How funny is this? In this video, Sammy halts the song to move along a stinky cigar smoker because “I’m about to sing”. He then picks up a lit cigarette and proceeds to sing while holding it mere inches from his face…..

Gerry Niewood – Homage

I absolutely adore this jazz tune, composed and originally recorded by the great Gerry Niewood as an homage to John Coltrane. Later, Adam Niewood recorded his own version as an homage to his father, Gerry.

I have commenced a recording of this, but regret that I’ve not yet been able to complete it without the services of an appropriate jazz pianist. Hopefully, those fortunes will change soon, but in the meantime here is the complete score and charts that I transcribed for solo tenor sax, trumpet, trombone, piano, and bass.

Titiyo – Talking to the Man in the Moon

Wikipedia tells me: “Talking to the Man in the Moon” is a 1989 hit by songwriter Magnus Frykberg and the first charting single by Swedish singer Titiyo from the eponymous debut music album Titiyo. The critically acclaimed single was a “massive late 1980s European hit”; it charted in Sweden for five weeks, and reached no. 6.

A little harmon mute work in this one.
