In our library that tune is "Blues in Hoss' Flat" instead of "Blues in Frankie's Flat".

I love this version of "I'm getting sentimental over you" for 4 trombones and rhythm section featuring Tommy Dorsey.  If anyone out there can transcribe it (unfortunately, I don't have that skill), I'd love to have a copy.

Thad Jones "Tip Toe"

That one is a real challange. Most challanging stuff I have ever played as a whole section in unison. That one should be on your repertoire list Good!

"Song of the Volga Boatman"! Glenn Miller. Check it out on youtube. A lot of different bands doing it. Miller was first.

It starts out as a unison trombone soli and becomes a round with the trumpet section! Fun to play.

When I was in the Kent State Lab Band back in the dark ages we won an honorable mention at the Elmurst Festival with it!

Boatmen was written to use the talents of Ernie Caceres, who was a whiz on baritone and  alto.  In fact, he had to play bari, alto, and clarinet.  Not a lot of baritone sax players want to haul that much gear.

Decades ago, I always enjoyed playing Bob Curnow's "Writer's Cramp."

Check out the soli on 'March of the Tadpoles' ~ Toshiko Akiyoshi ...based on changes from 'All The Things You Are'.
