Hunt House Days Solo for Tuba and Piano
Hunt House Days is a solo for Tuba 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 tuba and piano parts, a SmartMusic accompaniment file, an MP3 of the piano accompaniment, plus a brief description of the solo.
Audio recordings of the trumpet solo version are available on the MRNS Music Channel on YouTube.
Description: Before moving to Truro, my brother stayed at fellow Muppet performer Richard Hunt’s house on the cape. A lot of jamming took place there, which led me to write this blues-oriented solo. In an effort to teach swing style, I start it in 12/8 time then switch to 4/4 swing near the end. This solo is catchy and fun!
