Herb Alpert – The Lonely Bull

This was the last of several transcriptions I did of music from Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass. And I think the last of Herb’s songs that I am familiar with.

This one is written for two trumpets, harmonizing in the famous Tijuana Brass “Ameriachi” style.

Earth, Wind & Fire – September

Man, those EW&F guys can really play!

I already had charts for 1st and 2nd trumpet. This is a very demanding song so I transcribed additional parts for 3rd and 4th trumpet to share the load a little more evenly.

Jay & The Americans – Come a Little Bit Closer

I didn’t know this 1960s band before being asked to play this (and a couple of others from their playlist). To save on some of the grunt-work this one started as a MIDI file. It was a bit of a mess but I extracted the trumpet lines, made it human-readable and adapted it for use. I left the MIDI “sax solo” as written because it was kind of useful as the basis for my solo.

Jain – Come

Jain is a French singer/songwriter. This is a nice song and was apparently successful in France and Poland in 2015.

I’ve attempted to “fake” a loud French horn tone here, by playing flugelhorn and harmon-muted trumpet in unison. I’m sure it won’t fool anybody, but sometimes you’ve gotta work with what you’ve got… …

Be sure to also check out the extended version of this song 🙂

Herb Alpert – Spanish Flea

This transcription is limited to 2nd trumpet. I already had a 1st trumpet chart, so I didn’t need to transcribe it.
