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.

Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox – Creep

Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox recorded an outstanding version of Radiohead’s Creep. I was in the audience at the Sydney Opera House as part of PMJ’s 2017 Tour, and when this song was performed at the end of the show it brought the house down!

To try to recreate some of that magic and showcase the amazing vocal talents of my Bandhub friend Cecilia, I transcribed the trombone and tenor sax parts and included the chords. The trombone part has been transposed for flugelhorn, if required.

Barney Miller Theme

Ahh, the memories! I certainly remember my Dad laughing at EVERYTHING Abe Vigoda said on the Barney Miller TV show. Which made it very difficult to take him seriously, years later as an adult, when I first saw him in The Godfather.

This is a short but sweet trumpet feature.

The Dixie Cups – Chapel Of Love

My friends and co-collaborators Kirine (Kitty) and Alf of www.spektralfarben-music.com are just about to tie the knot. TODAY, 17 November 2017! Right now, literally, 10:30am in Germany as this blog post is scheduled to be published (yeah, I prepared this one ahead of time).

To surprise Alf, Kitty arranged for a bunch of Bandhub members to records this song, for which this trumpet and tenor sax transcription was required.

Congratulations, Kitty & Alf!

Greyboy Allstars – Fried Grease

Here’s a great opportunity to sink your funk flugelhorn chops into some Fried Grease!

There’s no trumpet or flugel on the original recording, but I did this anyway.

I’ve not scored for a solo break, but should you wish to play one we’re jamming on a C# minor 12-bar blues (for B♭ instruments).

Tony Joe White – Polk Salad Annie

“Louisiana singer/songwriter Tony Joe White acquainted America with the Southern cuisine polk salad on this track from his first album, which became a hit single in the summer of 1969.”

And now you can enjoy polk salad too!

There are two versions of this chart, both sounding identical. The first is, I think, easier to read. The second, with its correct key and accidentals, is more enharmonically correct, but I think more difficult to read. Anyway, I’m letting you decide which you prefer…..
