    National Express

    I first heard of the song National Express, which was in the British Top Ten in 1998, when my son Jon mentioned it last year. It was written and sung by Neil Hannon, with his group “The Divine Comedy”. Jon said that it would sound good played by a brass band. Tim Benson, solo trombone with Stannington Brass Band, also mentioned it on the internet forum, themouthpiece.com I spoke with Tim, and agreed to do a brass band arrangement with a special feature for solo trombone. In this arrangement, the solo trombone adds extra colour to a band arrangement which is a mixture of big band and country style. The trombone part is well within the capabilities of a good player. There is a comic element to this song, and the cornets and flugel contain an eight bar spoken part, which, if included, would enhance it’s entertainment value.Tim Benson took the music to rehearsal at Stannington Brass Band and it instantly became a hit with the band who left whistling the melody. The piece not only retains the fun of the original, but it cleverly uses the band, and a bit of additional vocals from the cornet section. “Tim Benson and the Stannington Brass Band would like to thank Tim Paton for the arrangement.” (Tim Benson).”National Express” is on Stannington Brass Band’s latest CD, “AND ALL THAT BRASS”, available from [email protected]”Pontins was brilliant… one of the highlights of my weekend was playing/performing National Express… absolutely belting arrangement Tim… I love it!” Message from Fiona, who performed with themouthpiece.com scratch band at the Pontins Brass Band Championships in Prestatyn.

    Xmas Ditty - Tim Paton

    Seasonal ‘fun’ for the band, (and the audience of course).Robert Childs commented:It begins with yet another rendition of Jingle Bells, “Wait a minute though, is someone out of tune somewhere? Who is that who some of the band are shouting at? Why am I thinking of Les Dawson? … Back to the music – it’s Good King Wenceslas, how did Rule Britannia get in there? … and I’m sure that was the end of God Save the Queen”.After an unadulterated version of O Come, all ye faithful, the final section features Jingle Bells and Good King Wenceslas claiming the last spot together.The piece ends with the well known ‘AMEN’ cadence – but there’s still a little surprise on the last chord! “..is subtitled ‘seasonal fun for band and audience’, and it certainly is just that!”

    Anvil Chorus from Il Trovatore - Verdi

    Programme Notes from Andrew Duncan:Like many of the arrangements in the Flexi-Collection – Popular Classics Series I have simplified the rhythms and time signature, etc. I have also omitted trills for ease of playing.Dynamics form a very important aspect of this arrangement and it is important to observe these, especially the p markings. Every dynamic from p through to ff is used as well as some crescendos.The 1st Cornet/Trumpet part is perhaps more difficult than in some of the other arrangements in the series, but the other parts are fairly simple in comparison.The Percussion part (which is optional) is unusual in that it calls for two 'Anvils' to be played. However if these are not available then a good effect can be obtained by hitting two pieces of metal with metal hammers.The Flexi-Collection ApproachFlexible scoring tailored to your needs – A perfect solution for expanding the repertoire of training and junior brass bands. The Flexi-Collection currently offers two series – Popular Classics and World Tour. Based on four-part harmony, these collections provide groups with the advantage of complete flexibility when they may not be balanced. If players or instruments are missing, the show can still go on!The Flexi-Collection – Popular Classics Series, encapsulates all that is great about the wonderful range of musical styles produced by Holst, Elgar, Handel, Verdi, Tchaikovsky, Grieg, Bizet and Parry.The thoughtful scoring and arranging by Andrew Duncan now means that groups of all abilities have access to a truly flexible set of music for their needs. With world parts, rudimentary theory, terminology translations and large format typesetting, The Flexi-Collection ticks all the boxes when it comes to bringing interesting music to the training and junior band/brass group environment.Available for Brass Band – The Flexi-Collection offers flexibility in every sense of the word.(Available individually or as part of the money-saving Flexi-Collection Popular Classics Album)

    Presley In Mind

    Includes: “Are You Lonesome Tonight?”, “Can’t Help Falling in Love”, and “Wonder of You”.Whether you like Elvis or not, audiences will love this medley. Three of his well known ballads, to which the audience can sing along.Talking of singing, the middle section of the band get their chance too! A very popular medley, which has also been included in ‘entertainment contests’. The Parr Band won their section at Wychavon in 2004, judged by Goff Richards.“Presley in Mind” is featured on Flixton Band’s CD (order from [email protected] price 10).Robert Childs commented:“The brass writing is very accessible. The third tune in this triptych of Presley’s pop songs requires the entire horn, baritone, trombone and euphonium sections to sing as well – all good fun I’m sure”.

    BA-Rock - Steve Robson

    This can definitely be described as a fun piece from Steve Robson, with a bit of clever styling thrown in for good measure!With an initial, melodious theme written in the style of a ‘Baroque’ composition, it is then recreated in a modern ‘Rock’ idiom, joining the two extremes and presenting a great little number to brighten your concert programme.Whilst this already demonstrates one instance of its play on words, it’s also worth noting that this composition also formed part of the writer’s portfolio for his BA degree!Whilst written withfour percussion parts of Timpani, Kit, Tambourine, Glockenspiel & Cow Bell, the tambourine part can be omitted if necessary.

    Here's That Rainy Day

    Trombone Solo.In 1953, a new musical by Johnny Burke and Jimmy Van Heusen was staged, “Carnival in Flanders”. Unfortunately, it was not successful. However, one of the songs, “Here’s that Rainy Day” became a standard on the cabaret scene.I have arranged this memorable song for solo trombone and brass band. It begins in a Latin style, then moves to the famous Jazz Big Band style. Good key players make the band parts playable by most bands – as long as they like to ‘swing’! The trombone part is not easy, on the other hand, neither is it aimed at the ‘select few’ virtuoso players. Impressive stuff though, with ‘written’ sections that sound like improvisation.

    Four Moods - Tim Paton

    An original composition by Tim Paton, re-crafted from his quartet into a full brass version. Tim wrote this piece at the RNCM, initially for the college trombone quartet. It was subsequently featured on a radio broadcast and, by popular demand, he later created this full brass band version. It is also available for concert band.Four Moods is just that – made up of 4 sections, each presenting a different style and emotion. The piece opens grandly with Nobility and is shortly followed by Sentiment, a smooth and sweet movement. The third element – Humour – takes the melody just heard in the previous Sentiment, and makes fun of it in an amusing style which utilises ‘rude’ trombone glissandi. The whole piece is then brought to a memorable closing with the final section – Hot ‘n’ Cool, featuring a jazz/big band style.Good key players make this piece playable by most bands.

    Manhattan Spiritual - Tim Paton

    I have arranged this incredibly memorable Big Band piece by Billy Maxted as a feature for the Timps and Kit, inspired by the man who made it famous, that spectacular drummer and showman – ERIC DELANEY -who, at the age of 83, is still performing in the UK and further afield. A book by Eddie Sammons about his astonishing career, including contributions from many famous artists and lots of amusing anecdotes, should be available in 27. The City of Lincoln Band inform me that this was one of their most popular items on their visit to Germany.The Timpani and Drum Kit parts will need good players. To get the best effect, a set of three timps is required, although an optional part for two timps is included. The timps and drums are coordinated, so the parts need to be played as written. For those bands with more than two percussionists, there is a third part, which, although optional, would certainly add to the overall effect. Although the Timp & Drum parts are technically demanding, the remainder of the parts are within the capability of most players.”I’m sure this item will be a huge success with popular light music audiences everywhere”.
