Thanks for the many wonderful ideas. Some stats: Softly As In A Morning Sunrise barely edged out Bjork’s Hyper-Ballad for the most-suggested. In The Wee Small Hours made a good showing, and Duke’s I Like The Sunrise also did respectably. I wanted to go with Misty Mountain Hop, Led Zep, as I’m being warned the weather is unstable. But final props and the free discs go to:
“Sunrise of the Interplanetary Dream Collector” by Terry Riley. Wonderful piece of music and the melodic line should translate well to solo trumpet. (It’s the first track on Cadenza on the Night Plain and the score is available through TerryRiley.com).
We shall see. I’m heading up there now.
