Cranberry Marmalade Solo for Trumpet and Piano
Cranberry Marmalade is a solo for Bb Trumpet and Piano from the collection Scenes from the Cape. This collection is dedicated to my brother, Jerry Nelson, who was a musician and puppeteer with the Muppets.
This MRNS Music Digital Download will include the Trumpet and Piano parts, plus a brief description of the solo. The entire collection may be purchased as a 2 book set (solo and piano books.)
Audio recordings and Performance Tips Videos are available on the MRNS Music Channel on YouTube.
Description: My brother loved many styles of music, so I thought I would write a rag time. Articulation is a key element in this solo and there are a lot of syncopated rhythms in 2/4 time. Endurance and range are a bit of a factor too.
