LaGaylia Frazier – A Night in Tunisia

LaGaylia performed this funky vocal arrangement of Dizzy Gillespie’s masterpiece at Sweden’s Rhapsody in Rock in 2006. A mighty fine performance worth watching on YouTube!

I’ve transcribed the trumpet ensemble parts and also taken a few small liberties of my own.

Yes – Onward

It’s time for flugelhorns to pretend they’re French horns once more…

The Offspring – Why Don’t You Get A Job?

A fun song! Not much happening for the trumpets though. The Beatles managed to do a little better for the horns when they first released this song as Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da.

Still, I loved singing along to this when it came on the radio, back in the day. I sang the trumpet parts too. So it was nice to finally play them.

Rhythm Heritage – Theme From S.W.A.T.

As a kid, I played this along with my Daly Wilson Big Band LP, and cassette tape, many times. Muscle memory is an amazing thing, and just won’t let you forget how to play these things!

So it wasn’t a lot of trouble to adapt my thinking to the original recording by Rhythm Heritage and get this down on paper…
