Many years ago I would teach eight straight hours of trumpet lessons on Saturday and on the way to the studio I would listen to a program called “Bluegrass Saturday Morning.” There I first heard the music of Alison Krauss. Her voice was magical. I thought of her music when I wrote this piece in 2014 and the title, “Titanium”, seemed somehow to fit. The trombones end this piece most heroically. Chord changes are provided for alto sax, trumpet, or trombone for flexibility in soloing.
Instrumentation: Soprano Sax, Alto Sax, Tenor Sax 1&2, Baritone Sax, Trumpet 1-4, Trombone 1-3, Bass Trombone, Guitar, Piano, Bass, Drums." Also available as a PDF.
