Avalon (Trombone quartet)

By Al Jolson/Vincent Rose/Buddy DeSylva, arr. Eric Heidner

Trombone quartet

Includes score and parts

Digital download

This trombone quartet arrangement of the 1920 jazz standard "Avalon" (named after the town on Catalina Island in California) is a unique from-the-ground-up arrangement, opening with a lyrical chorale that moves into an up-tempo Dixieland section. All 4 parts contain melodic material, and Parts 1 through 3 each have solos, which can either be improvised or played from the written-out lines provided. The Trombone 1 part comes in both tenor clef and bass clef versions, and the score and parts are marked up with cues for clarification. This piece is a real audience-pleaser, yet is quite accessible to lesser-advanced players as well. Make sure to see my multi-track video of this piece on YouTube (a link is provided below).
