"Atlantic crossing" is a modal tune with a light straight 8ths feel. I wrote this to get the kind of feeling of being alone on the quiet water. It features some wave sound effects in the brass and some room for your trumpet soloist to blow. A good teaching opportunity is the Mixolydian scale and modal Jazz as a whole.
- Lead trumpet to F
- Wave effects in the horns
- Trumpet solo on the mixolydian scale
