Trumpet solo with percussion ensemble:

Spanish MemoirsSPANISH MEMOIRS (2004) for solo trumpet & percussion quartet by Howard J. Buss. Spicy, zesty Latin rhythms are juxtaposed with soaring lyrical melodies influenced by jazz. Percussion: Perc. 1: Vibes, snare drum, conga drum, tambourine, and wood block; Perc.2: Marimba, sand blocks, and claves; Perc.3: Marimba and guiro; Perc. 4: Marimba, bass drum, suspended cymbals, bongos, maracas and tam-tam. (10’) Grade V.
"...sure to be applauded by soloist, ensemble and audience alike. A melodious trumpet part, an animated accompaniment featuring toe-tapping rhythms, some flashy mallet playing, and the influences of the jazz and Latin idioms will go a long way to ensure the success of this piece." - John R. Raush, Percussive Notes - June 2005. 
Recorded on the CD Spanish Memoirs by Diego Arias and Yu-Jung Chung et al (IBS Classical).
