    The main theme for the movie "The Man Who Would be King" written by Maurice Jarre has a most beautiful trumpet solo in the middle which just gets to me every time I hear. I love it so much I am will to purchase the whole kit for wind ensemble for our group to play it. But try as I might for the past several years, I have not been able to locate it on line. The typical wind ensemble packs exist for his "Laura's Theme" from Dr. Zhivago or "Lawrence of Arabia" but not "The Man Who Would be King". Can anyone out thee point me in the right direction or provide a contact. Thank you,
