Meditation for Trumpet and Piano
A hauntingly beautiful lyric piece by one of the early members of Blood, Sweat and Tears, this was written for Roy Poper in 1999. It has been recorded by Roy with Dick Halligan (hear the audio sample below). Trumpet part in both Bb and C. My own "solution" has been to play it on the E-flat trumpet with a bucket mute. The trumpet part should just float through the harmonies without causing disturbance.
The CD L. A. Trumpet Works, by Roy Poper, contains the whole piece as well as the Dialogue for Trumpet, Piano and Percussion (BQ-46) and others. Click here to go to that CD in Books and CDs.
