Herb Alpert – Spanish Flea

This transcription is limited to 2nd trumpet. I already had a 1st trumpet chart, so I didn’t need to transcribe it.

Herb Alpert – Tijuana Taxi

herbalpert02The Herb Alpert stuff is a lot of fun to play. In moderation, of course. ūüėČ

This chart includes 1st and 2nd trumpet parts, harmonizing in those unique “Ameriachi” thirds.

Herb Alpert – A Taste of Honey

herbalpert03This one is only a trombone chart. I already had trumpet charts so didn’t need to transcribe them. But I needed to help out my good buddy on trombone…

Chuck Mangione Transcriptions

mangione01Chuck Mangione is,¬†without question, the artist who most influenced my trumpet and flugelhorn playing style. About a million years ago (maybe a little less) I transcribed these charts for some of Chuck’s lesser-known pieces. I can’t recall which music scoring software I was using at the time, except that it was really clunky and difficult to use. And it was free.

Chuck Mangione - You're The Best There Is - Flugelhorn Chuck Mangione - Steppin' Out - Flugelhorn Chuck Mangione - Memories of Scirocco - Flugelhorn

Diesel – Never Miss Your Water

I didn’t know this song before I was asked to play it. Quite like it now! This was an early transcription of mine; I wrote the part so it could be shared with a tenor sax.

James Brown – Sex Machine

This one’s here for completeness. If anyone ever actually needs this trumpet chart I think I’ll fall over!

Looks like the Bandhub collab video has gone, along with all evidence that I once played this. All that counting and performance anxiety for nothing… … …

TLC – Waterfalls

This one started its life as a MIDI file. It’s great to have a head-start on a transcription, although often it doesn’t count for much. I extracted the trumpet lines, made it human-readable and adapted it for use.

I think this one is pretty good, and the Bandhub collab turned out to be great!

Neil Diamond – Solitary Man

I think this chart started its life as a MIDI file. But once the clutter was gone it became human-readable.

Hunters & Collectors – Holy Grail

This was the first Bandhub collab that I organized myself. It was a lot of fun to bring together a bunch of people I didn’t know, most of whom were scattered across the planet and unaware of Australian band Hunters & Collectors.
