    My question to you all is this: What is your favourite solo piece you have ever played or heard? can be just one person on the stage, or trumpet + piano, or trumpet + orchestra, can be a piece originally written for another instrument, but also available for trumpet now.

    I'm asking because I need inspiration :-)

    feel free to write down multiple pieces, or add youtube video's.

    now my favourite pieces:

    La Virgen de la Macarena
    (search youtube for virgen macarena arturo sandoval)
    and
    arutunian concerto
    (search youtube for arutunian sergei nakariakov, it's a 2 part video)

    your turn :-)

    Tiger Rag
    Rondo for Lifey
    Trumpeters Lullaby

    It seems to change from week to week

    I have lots of favourite solos - but I would need you blokes to play them. My limit is "My Way" arranged by Ed Wilson of the Daly-Wilson Big Band - it's melodic, slow enough for me and explores my range exactly. :thumbsup:
