Trombone Break from Ellington’s Nutcracker Suite (Entr’acte)

This month I went on tour with a big band and had a blast playing Duke Ellington’s Nutcracker Suite. This was a perfect excuse to do a little transcription of the solo trombone break in movement 5, the Entr’acte! In the recording, it is played with what sounds like either a closed plunger or a cup mute.
