Edition: Jazz Big Band Arrangement

Description: Latin - Medium

Publisher: Lush Life Music

"Cerezo Rosa," or "Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom White" as it is otherwise known, is probably Perez Prado's most well-known piece. In essence, it's a trumpet solo with big band backing, and is instantly recognizable for the valved and lipped slur / scoop at the start of the soloists phrase. The solo part has been written for the 4th trumpet, the unsung member of the section who rarely gets the limelight. All of the rhythm parts are written out in full, though your pianist and guitarist are equally free to play their own interpretation from the chords provided. The lead trumpet has to reach a high E6 once, and some high D6s, with an option to scream to high F6 too (as does the soloist in the last measure), in true Prado style. Other than this, the chart is very straight forward, and moves along in a great Latin groove. There are no sax doubles. Latin @ 110 b.p.m.
