Cranberry Marmalade Solo for Trombone and Piano
Cranberry Marmalade is a solo for Trombone 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 Trombone and Piano parts, a brief description of the solo, a SmartMusic accompaniment file, and an MP3 accompaniment file.
An audio version of the trumpet version is 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. This solo begins in the key Bb and moves to Ab towards the end.
