A piece for two Bb Trumpets & Piano or Keyboards, in the rumba style of Cuba, with an optional Double Bass or Bass Guitar part.

I composed this piece on a wet day in Norway, whilst picking rhubarb in my garden!

The rumba was originally a marriage dance. Many of its movements and actions which seem to have an erotic meaning are merely depictions of simple farm tasks. The shoeing of the mare, the climbing of a rope, the courtship of the rooster and the hen,etc. It was done for amusement on the farms by the black population in Cuba. However it became a popular ballroom dance and was introduced into the USA about 1933. It was the Americanized version for the Cuban son and Danzon. It is in 4-4 time. The characteristic feature is to take each step without initially placing the weight on that step. Steps are taken with a slightly bent knee which when staightened, causes the hips to sway from side to side in what has come to be known as Cuban Motion!

If you need a drum set part, you will find one attached to the trombone bass clef arrangement.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.
