Arthur Pryor (1870-1942) was one of the best-known trombonists and bandsmen of his day. Trombone soloist for John Philip Sousa's celebrated bandpl beginning in 1892; he later functioned as assistant conductor of the Sousa band (1894-1903) before starting his own ensemble. His more than 300 compositions include novelty tunes, ragtime pieces and operettas, but of course he is best remembered today for his virtuosic solos for his own instrument. This book collects eight of his most popular solos in one volume and includes Blue Bells of Scotland, Fantastic Polka, The Little Chief (Polka Caprice), Love's Enchantment (Valse de Concert), Thoughts of Love and more. This is a book every trombonist will want to have in his or her library.
Arthur Pryor was one of the most popular bandsmen of his day. He was the trombone soloist for the famous John Philip Sousa band in the early part of the 20th Century. Pryor later organized his own band that was renowned around the world. He was one of the first solo performers to use phonograph recordings to preserve his performances. To this day, his recordings of his own works are considered to be some of the best trombone performances ever recorded. Pryor's works for the trombone are melodic, idiomatic and virtuosic. This collection preserves many of his best known compositions like Thoughts of Love and Blue Bells of Scotland, but also makes available once again some of his other delightful works.

    These pieces are very enjoyable but a number of them are fairly difficult for the average player.Well worth listening to Bousfield and Alessi performing them to get an idea of the different interpretations one can use! If you can master all of these you are on the way to...

    becoming a virtuoso performer , if you can't just enjoy trying!
