21st Century (2017). Click is an original three movement work for 6 trumpets and optional percussion. What it lacks in a colorful title, it makes up for it with driving rhythms, memorable melodies and fun parts for all players. There are interesting parts for 5 percussionists and, although not necessary, would add substantially to the performance of this piece. The first movement is a flashy opener and is shifty rhythmically. The second opens with ethereal sounding cup mute support under a flugel...
A lyrical piece inspired by the view of our planet from space. This work featues the quintet in a peaceful mood and offers the opportunity for some soloistic playing by the flugel horn player. Score & parts. Duration: 3:30 minutes. - the publisher

20th Century (1999). The Chorale (lento espressivo) is reminiscent of the subtle and haunting polyphony of the Renaissance in which sombre phrases slowly overlap and are heard in a perspective of infinity. The structured changes of uneven time signatures(7/8, 5/8, etc.) that characterize the subsequent fast and spectacular Toccata require intense concentration and involvement from each performer. It is a course of gripping rhythmical, technical and musical virtuosity. Chorale & Toccata is dedicat...

In 1814-15 several battles were fought at Fort Bowyer (which was later demolished and replaced by Fort Morgan) at the entrance of Mobile Bay. The piece was...
For solo trumpet and trumpet quintet (6 parts total). The first movement, "Crossing the Cuyahoga", is a heroic fanfare depicting the almost overwhelming scene of towering buildings as one crosses the river into Cleveland, Ohio. The serenity of the evening lights of the city as viewed from far away are the inspiration for "The Skyline at Night", depicted by a lyrical song on flugelhorn accompanied by sustained notes in the cup-muted trumpet parts. The last movement, "The Emerald Necklace" is a d...

Romantic. Opera. This is an arrangement of the overture from Rossini's well known opera entitled, “The Barber of Seville”. This arrangement remains true to the original form. However the key was was moved up a half step from the original key of E Major to F Major to make the parts more playable for B-flat instruments. The Flugelhorns play the role of the lower voiced instruments from the original score while the Trumpets fill in the brighter sonorities. An E-flat trumpet part is provided as an al...

21st Century (2011). Gilded Fanfare was written for James Olcott, in honor of his retirement, and to be premiered at the Ohio International Trumpet Guild (OITG) conference in March of 2012. I feel fortunate to have been included amongst 9 other composers, all hand-selected by Jim for the occasion. “Gilded” has a double-meaning in this case. The title is a pun on "Guild" (from International Trumpet Guild), but also refers to being "covered in gold" - i.e. one's retirement years being the "goldenye...

For 6 Bb trumpets. This is a lesser known Christmas piece dating from the 1500s. It is rhythmic and colorful with melody in several voices. The opening is a call and response between a soloist and the remainder of the group. There are some sections with some fast tonguing, but the piece is not too difficult for a group to put together and be enjoyed by audiences. --the publisher
