Temptresses for Trombones
This medley of standards was arranged at the request of James Watson for an item to feature the trombone section of Black Dyke Band at the National Championship Gala concert at the Royal Albert Hall. It begins with a slow blues, continues with a bossa nova and finishes with a ragtime.
Balance throughout to allow the soloists to be heard without undue strain.
There are three very different styles; make sure that each is well characterised.
