    Hi guys! I have this song I really like, and there's a trumpet part I'm interested in trying. I'm useless when it comes to playing by ear, so if anyone knows how to transcribe music, please help. The main trumpet part starts at about 1:57. I can find transcriptions for the song, but not for Ella's rendition. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help!

    That's just the melody to, "I can't get started".
    Find a lead sheet to that tune, and you've got the solo. ;-)

    Very polite of you to provide that. But I just wonder what the difference it is to a questioner if he gets answers without doing/learning anything to get them vs having to do the work and find out for his/themselves.

    Kehaulani, kind is the word that comes to mind. I thought about providing a transcription, but hadn't gotten around to it. Now, if additional requests from the OP start to show up, THEN I would say "You need to discover the satisfaction of doing this for your self." A one-time courtesy like this warms the heart. Mine, anyway.

    Someone had to transpose it, and that's good enough for me.
