TRP-098 Intrada Dramatica [5] Price, J.

Composer: Price, Joseph D.
Number of Trumpets: 5
Key: Bb Major concert
Duration: 3 minutes and 11 seconds
Difficulty: 5
A rather striking and very dramatic work for five trumpets (also written for eight trumpets - see Eight Trumpets in the Triplo Catalogue). This piece has a great deal of rhythmic and melodic counterpoint in very dramatic and harmonically fascinating ways. The juxtaposition of some melodic and expressive content add to the intriguing and exciting aspects of this piece. Intrada Dramatic has a decided "wow" factor without being overly difficult. It can be used as an extremely impressive opener or for a very special one-piece occasion. (Recorded by Tromba Mundi)

TRP-108 Mambo Beat [5] Puente, T. (Olcott)

Composer: Puente, Tito
Transcriber: Olcott, James L.
Number of Trumpets: 5
Accompaniment: piano, guitar (opt.), bass and drums
Key: Eb Major concert
Duration: 4 minutes
Difficulty: 5
Mambo Beat, written in the mid 1950's, was originally an instrumental showcase labeled as "mambo jazz" and has been updated starting at the solo section to reflect the more modern salsa feel. Every effort has been made to make this transcription/arrangement as authentic as possible, giving written examples of the authentic styles for the rhythm section. The piano part is written with stylistic patterns. The bass part should be read as written. The latin percussion instruments (patterns are given as examples) heighten the authenticity of the work but are not necessary. The guitar part is supplemental. The recording is of the beginning of the piece and does not reflect the salsa section, which carries the arrangement to the end. (see the piano part in the written example).
