    That might work with what he wrote!

    Good job!

    Mike! YOU'RE A GENIUS!

    That's it! Bugler's Holiday!
    CONGRATULATIONS!

    Let me send you a fine cigar my friend. I have wondered about the title of this song since 1967.

    Also, I instantly looked for it on YouTube and found a version of it by The Canadian Brass:
    YouTube - Bugler's Holiday - Canadian Brass w Victoria Hall

    Of course it took three trumpeters to do what Al Hirt could do alone.

    I've heard of a technique called "double-tonguing" and read on YouTube that some trumpet players use "triple-tonguing" in order to play this staccato piece.

    Triple tonguing is pretty much essential for Bugler's Holiday, even with 3 players. It is a fundamental technique, despite its esoteric name.

    Thanks Veery!

    You mentioned that triple-tonguing is a fundamental trumpet technique.

    Unfortunately... I'm more of a fun-DUH-mental person when it comes to music. Aaaaahhhh!

    So, I sincerely do appreciate your comment. In grade school I just could not get the hang of Music at all and my older brother, now a professional musician and music instructor, told me when I was eight years that I couldn't sing.

    And that I was stupid. Well, at least I got over that part.

    But I never caught on to singing or music, so it's an honor to be among folks like you here on this website my friend.

    Here is another, very rapid version, of Bugler's Holiday, really cool:
    YouTube - Buglers Holiday

    Thanks again Veery, take care.

    If I had to guess, I would say that is Al Hirt with the Boston Pops on the "Pops Goes The Trumpet" album.

    I think the name of the song you are referring too is called ..."the Bourbon street Parade" it starts with a fanfare...and is usually the first song in his set.
