The American pop and rock composer Leon Rene wrote “Rockin' Robin” under the pseudonym Jimmie Thomas. It was recorded by Bobby Day in 1958 and became his most popular song, reaching number two on the Billboard Hot 100 and number one in R&B sales. It was later recorded by Michael Jackson in 1972, and was the best-selling hit on his debut solo album “Got To Be There”. This arrangement is written for a soprano cornet soloist, and is a rousing crowd-pleaser, designed to get the audience clapping along. It was written for, and first performed by, Charlie Welch of Horbury Victoria Band. Whether it is a Christmas piece is up to the concert planner to decide - but it definitely works in a festive programme! The solo part is a guide, which the soloist is welcome to diverge from if desired! In particular, the section between H and K has a free “jazz solo” feel and can be simplified or embellished to suit the player. A soprano duet version is included for use as an unconventional novelty feature. Whilst a Bb version of the 2nd duet part has also been included, this is not the recommended instrumentation, and it will be a challenge to play! Alternate clef trombone parts are provided.
