Does anyone have access to or know where I can find and borrow a copy of the band parts to Pryor's Fantastic Polka? Thanks much....

Micah-

Seeing as you're in edumacation (as DJ might put it), you might be able to borrow a set from the Marine Band in DC.

I was going to start a new topic, but did a search.

I LOVE THIS SOLO NOW! I just bought Alessi's version and he rips it up! ( :shuffle: Aren't drummers the ones who use that term?) I'm going to play that solo for something! It's on his Illuminations CD.

He takes a high Ab in the cadenza up an octave...

My favorite part of the song is at the end, Presto! He plays it as written at about 150 BPM, then just starts flying up an octave at 165 BPM ( four times)! Phew! I can't stop listening to it!


This is the Presto sound clip.

Holy cow!  If that guy's playing trombone, what the hell is it I've been doing?

in the words of my students--oh, wait, I need to keep it clean Grin

in the words of a typical Philadelphian--holy freaking @#$@$@

in my words...priceless!

and I thought the Trudel recording was good (he takes the last b flat up an octave)

Can't find what? The sheet music? Buy the Arthur Pryor Trombone Solo book! Hickey's has it for like $20! I was skeptical that such a thing existed for such a low price, but it really does include the full trombone and full piano parts for all of Pryor's famous solos.

If this wasn't what your question was, my apologies.

I have that (paid $14) - I was talking about the solo w/full wind ensemble like on the CD. I plan on having to create the band arrangement myself FROM the piano part since I can't find it published.

Micah, getting back on topic.

One place to try is The Chatfield Brass Band.

I also had a message that somebody was creating band accompaniments to some of the Pryor solos.  His name is Andrew Glover, and you can try to contact him at andrewglover@hotmail.com.  He offered me an arrangement of "Starlight Waltz" and if I was planning to play it soon, I'd probably buy it.

I agree!!!  Of all the recordings I have Trudel's is my personal favorite - he does some crazy (cool) stuff in there.  Definitely worth buying, the whole CD is great.  It has a good, diverse, selection of music on it.
