You may want to pick this one up quickly for the length of this musicians popularity may be very short. I love this song and think the arrangement works well for the trumpet quartet but I watched this popular young man on one of the morning shows and I’m convinced this will be his first and last hit song.

This can be done as a solo for all of the melody is in the solo part, or as a quartet or the optional part can be played as in the recording for a fuller presentation.
