Description:

Well, we just had to have an arrangement of Lush Life in our catalogue, and here is our favourite. This version is an out-and-out Trumpet feature from the Harry James book. It is as the name suggests - lush, rich, full of wonderful tone and colour - and it makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up. The horns are written as three Trumpets and Solo Trumpet, and the solo part would suit a player with a big fat tone. The lead Alto doubles Clarinet for just a couple of bars, the 1st Trumpet reaches a high Db briefly on a couple of occasions, and the 1st Trombone gets to high C, though we've cued the 3rd Trumpet just in case. Another masterly transcription from Jon Harpin.
