This spectacular work by trumpet virtuoso Allen Vizzutti features your trumpet soloist in the jazz idiom without losing accessibility to your Concert Band students. The opening begins with a trumpet cadenza using half valves, bending notes and timbre changes accompanied by stop chords in the band. An easy swing section follows with a groove established by the low brass, low woodwinds and percussion. The up tempo second movement features the soloist using a plunger mute. There's great interplay between the soloist and band in this exciting feature for your star trumpet player!
