Herb Alpert – Tijuana Taxi

herbalpert02The Herb Alpert stuff is a lot of fun to play. In moderation, of course. ūüėČ

This chart includes 1st and 2nd trumpet parts, harmonizing in those unique “Ameriachi” thirds.

Herb Alpert – A Taste of Honey

herbalpert03This one is only a trombone chart. I already had trumpet charts so didn’t need to transcribe them. But I needed to help out my good buddy on trombone…

Chuck Mangione Transcriptions

mangione01Chuck Mangione is,¬†without question, the artist who most influenced my trumpet and flugelhorn playing style. About a million years ago (maybe a little less) I transcribed these charts for some of Chuck’s lesser-known pieces. I can’t recall which music scoring software I was using at the time, except that it was really clunky and difficult to use. And it was free.

These three charts still feature at the Mangione Magic website.

Chuck Mangione - You're The Best There Is - Flugelhorn Chuck Mangione - Steppin' Out - Flugelhorn Chuck Mangione - Memories of Scirocco - Flugelhorn

Diesel – Never Miss Your Water

I didn’t know this song before I was asked to play it. Quite like it now! This was an early transcription of mine; I wrote the part so it could be shared with a tenor sax.

James Brown – Sex Machine

This one’s here for completeness. If anyone ever actually needs this trumpet chart I think I’ll fall over!

Looks like the Bandhub collab video has gone, along with all evidence that I once played this. All that counting and performance anxiety for nothing… … …

TLC – Waterfalls

This one started its life as a MIDI file. It’s great to have a head-start on a transcription, although often it doesn’t count for much. I extracted the trumpet lines, made it human-readable and adapted it for use.

I think this one is pretty good, and the Bandhub collab turned out to be great!
