If there was one song that would encapsulate the laid back, easy-going nature of the bass trombone player - this is it! Roger Miller's classic 1964 song has now been skilfully arranged by Lee Rogers which can feature either the bass trombone or Eb Bass. The band parts also enjoy the laid back nature of the soloist with the melody featuring throughout different sections. Recorded by Dean Martin, The Proclaimers, Jerry Lee Lewis & countless other, this item is pure entertainment and just begs for the soloist to endure the "hobo" look as the song's lyrics describes. A must for all bands.In stock: Estimated delivery 1-2 days
Pomp & Circumstance March No. 4 was completed in June 1907, shortly after his fiftieth birthday. Like the first, it contains an equally impressive ‘big tune’ in the trio section, but it also matches No.1 in that it has a lively, rhythmic march element to envelope it. Unlike No.1 though, Elgar cleverly superimposes one on top of the other for the final, extended coda. Several attempts have been made to fit words to the main tune, the first of which were by the composer’s wife, Alice, for her song The King’s Way to celebrate the opening of a road in London. The music was then set to Alfred Noye’s Song of Victory before a later attempt to make a patriotic Song of Liberty for World War II by the author A P Herbert. Item Code: TPBB-048 Duration: 4'50"
