100 Cookin’ ‘n’ Burnin’
Dedication: Jawn Glass
Recording Reference: Celebrations
Cookin’ ‘n’ Burnin’ is a double tongue duet completely in the key of C, no accidentals, modulations or chromaticism of any sort. I dedicated this duet to Jawn Glass, my good friend from Andress High School, because he was always better at double tonguing than me. He was on my mind from the moment I sat down to write it.
Cookin’ ‘n’ Burnin’ is one of the Tonalization Duets. Because the key of C is typically the easiest key for most trumpet players, I decided to make this duet very fast and difficult.
