“At the Trocadero” PDF and MP3 package

“At the Trocadero” is an original tune I wrote with Wayne Hawkins that tells the story of my parents and their favorite club when they were dating in 1955. The building of the now-forgotten Trocadero Club still stands at 39th and Main in Kansas City, Missouri, but the music is long gone. “At the Trocadero” paints a picture of what it might have been like those many years ago. Wayne’s composition put my lyrics into a call-and-response form between the vocalist and tenor sax. Combined with the tenor functioning as a character in the song itself, the tune offers a fresh diversion from standard-form ballads and allows the featured artists plenty of room to express themselves. This package has been put together for players, students, or educators to practice or perform.” – John Armato
