All The Things You Are - arr. Gerry Mulligan Awakening, The - Metheny & Mays / arr. Curnow Back In Time - Pat Metheny / arr. Bob Curnow
 One of those mystery charts that hardly anyone knows about, this chart is a beauty.  Bob Curnow is well known for his orchestrations of Pat Metheny's music, and this arrangement will fit right in with The First Circle and Minuano.  Pat Metheny is known for his beautiful melodies, and "Back In Time" is no exception.
Begin the Beguine (for Doc) - arr. Bill Holman Bugle Call Rag - arr. Bill Holman Doctor Is In, The - Bob Curnow
 As recorded on "Tonight Show Band, Vol.  As recorded by the Tonight Show Band on "Once More With Feeling" (Amherst),  this wonderful chart is the hottest "flag-waver" of all time.   Set as a medium-up swing feel, this chart features trumpet throughout and is exciting from beginning to end, including a great shout chorus to highlight the entire ensemble.

 Here is a chance to dazzle your audiences and  show off the Trumpet Section, without a lot of hassle.  This chart is a blast!  It is one of the more popular charts from Maynard's Birdland Dream Band.  As recorded by the Tonight Show Band on "Once More With Feeling" (Amherst), this bright, swinging chart is a blast !  Bill Holman is at his best, weaving descending unison lines with the tune stated by trumpet and tenor sax (both of which are given solo space).
If You Could See Me Now - arr. Bill Holman Introduction to a Samba - arr. Bob Curnow Invention for Guitar and Trumpet - Bill Holman
 Tadd Dameron's ballad "If You Could See Me Now" receives sensitive and thoughtful treatment in this arrangement by the great Bill Holman.  Originally recorded by Cannonball Adderley on his album Domination and inspired by Oliver Nelson, Bob Curnow's adaptation/arrangement of "Introduction to a Samba" features the alto saxophone and trumpet duet stating the melody supported by a traditional samba feel.  Once used in the Blackboard Jungle movie, this piece is one of Holman's earliest compositions to be recorded by Kenton.
It Could Happen To You (Edited) - arr. Willie Maiden It Could Happen To You (Pro) - arr. Willie Maiden Just Friends - arr. Tommy Newsom
 It Could Happen To You is one of the best known standard tunes, and this arrangement certainly does it justice.  The Pro (original) version of "It Could Happen To You" is absolutely wonderful.  As recorded by the Tonight Show Band on "Once More With Feeling" (Amherst), this is one of Tommy's "classic" charts .
Kelly's Theme - Bob Curnow Minuano (six eight) - Metheny & Mays / arr. Curnow My Funny Valentine - arr. Willie Maiden
Kelly's Theme - Bob Curnow
Retail Price: $45.00
 A ballad for Solo Trumpet, this is an ideal selection for your festival requirements.  This is another Masterwork by Metheny and Mays and destined to become the same kind of classic as The First Circle .  This absolutely beautiful arrangement by Willie Maiden features a trombone and tenor sax solo, along with the primary solo by (guess who) the trumpet player a la Maynard.
My Old Flame - arr. Marty Paich My Old Flame - arr. Tommy Newsom Oblivion - arr. Bob Curnow
Oblivion - arr. Bob Curnow
Retail Price: $55.00
 Although this has been in the catalog for a while, it is now notated in Finale, and the new edition comes with a full score for the first time.  As recorded by the Tonight Show Band on "Once More With Feeling" (Amherst), this is a lovely, warm ballad setting of this great standard tune.  Piazzolla wrote many beautiful melodies, and this one is perhaps the most haunting.
Of Another Time - Bob Curnow Party's Over, The - arr. Willie Maiden Peanut Vendor, The - arr. Pete Rugolo
Of Another Time - Bob Curnow

 Here is another fantastic trumpet feature for a fantastic trumpet player.  The Stan Kenton Orchestra was always an ideal showcase for the outstanding soloists within its ranks.  Of all the pieces Hank wrote for the Stan Kenton Orchestra, this is arguably the best one.

   "(A) Relative Calm" is a beautiful ballad that features trumpet throughout. Oliver Nelson arranged this tune to feature the legendary Art Farmer and was recorded on the album “Listen to Art Farmer and the Orchestra”!  Buddy Childers, that is! Willis wrote this for Buddy in 1954, and it is recorded on the Kenton Showcase album (This music is available from Mosaic Records in their Russo/Holman CD set.

 As recorded by the Tonight Show Band on "Once More With Feeling" (Amherst), Holman takes a fresh look at this wonderful old jazz standard.  Exactly as recorded by Oliver Nelson's Orchestra and featuring Joe Newman on trumpet.  One of Maynard's most beautiful ballads from the Dream Band period.
There Will Never Be Another You - arr. Bill Holman Too Soon Tomorrow - Pat Metheny / arr. Curnow Well, Git It - Sy Oliver / arr. Bob Curnow
 This is one of the great "unrecorded" (or "missing") solo features written for the Stan Kenton Orchestra.  Pat Metheny is the master at composing moving, gorgeous ballads, and Too Soon Tomorrow is no exception.  Every band from Tommy Dorsey to the Tonight Show Band to Ted Heath seemed to have a version of this great Sy Oliver tune.
What Is This Thing Called Love - arr. Tommy Newsom Where's Teddy (edited v.) - arr. Bob Curnow Where's Teddy (pro v.) - Willie Maiden
 As recorded on the Tonight Show Band CD "Once More With Feeling" (Amherst Records), this chart is one of the "hippest" that Tommy ever wrote for that band.  This "edited" version of "Where's Teddy" (as played and recorded by Maynard Ferguson's Birdland Dream Band) is much more playable for the trumpet section as a whole than the original "pro" version (which is also available). This is the original chart as played and recorded by Maynard Ferguson's Birdland Dream Band.
