Whilst at the RNCM, I wrote a piece for the college trombone quartet, which was featured in a radio broadcast. I later created a full brass band version. “NOBILITY” is a grand opening, shortly followed by “SENTIMENT”, which is smooth and sweet. “HUMOUR” takes the melody we have just heard in Sentiment, and makes fun of it. “HOT ‘N COOL” finishes it off in a jazz big band style. Good key players make this playable by most bands. “Four Moods comprises distinct stylistic differences, beginning with Nobility and Sentiment, then continuing with Humour, which parodies the theme of the previous movement in an amusing manner (complete with ‘rude’ trombone glissandi) and concluding with Hot’n’Cool, mixing jazz/rock with swing styles”.
