Something Is Gonna Happen,
Cuz I Can Feel It!
Trumpet Quartet Sheet Music PDF
by Eddie Lewis
Can you play old fashioned New Orleans music in a trumpet quartet?
Apparently you can!
Take your audience on a quick trip to the French Quarter with this lively jazz piece for four trumpets.
Something Is Gonna Happen was an idea I had after several years of being paid to transcribe New Orleans music from the 20’s, 30’s and 40’s. What would happen if I applied what I’ve learned to writing an original piece in that style for trumpet quartet? Would it work?
Yes, it works. People love this piece and it makes a great ice-breaker for a chamber music concert or a recital.
On our seven level system, Something Is Gonna Happen is a Trumpet Pro skill level. This is the fifth of seven levels making it just barely advanced.
The first part does have a written high F, but the rest of the piece tops off at high C.
Endurance can be a problem because it is three pages long. but there are short rests for everyone throughout.
