The was a big hit for Melissa Manchester and also works well for a trumpet choir. The ensemble parts are very easy and some of the repeated sections in the second and third trumpet parts alternate to give then a break. The Flugel parts are mostly constant but I have them in the easiest register. All of the extra solo licks are written in so even a younger player can sound like a pro. The solo part requires a little more ability than the ensemble parts.

I put an interesting choral at the end to break the ground bass feel.

This can be performed without the bass part.
