The Triplo Press CHTE Series
The Cincinnati Herald Trumpet Ensemble Series is a collection of original fanfares and arrangements by leader/founder James Olcott of the most called-for popular and utilitarian works for festive occasions. They are specifically intended for and appropriate to any event that may utilize such an ensemble, including concerts, weddings, ceremonies, civic school events, corporate shows, grand openings, and other like happenings. The arrangements utilize B-flat trumpets, are simple and straightforward, and require a minimum of rehearsal time. They are effective, colorful, and have a high degree of impact. The series was reviewed in the Journal of the International Trumpet Guild.

From the ITG Journal, Dec 1990:
"...extremely attractive and useful arrangements for trumpet ensembles... simple, straightforward, and require a minimum of rehearsal time. They do not make extreme demands in terms of range or endurance... music is clearly printed, with no awkward page turns. (Olcott) demonstrates his usual expert arranging skill in providing as much variety and melodic interest as possible in the inner parts while rotating the melody among the players."
