THUMP is a piece originally for Wind Band that has been adapted for Tuba Ensemble. It portrays that feeling of drive and purpose that one has when fulfilling a difficult task or mission with confidence. Its music is meant to be heroic, and yet you can hear that the hero or heroine has obstacles to overcome. You may hear it as the background music to an army marching to battle they know they can win, or perhaps an overture to a Klingon Opera, as the Star trek fan in me may have imagined sometimes while writing this.
Dr. Cottrell currently performs on tuba with the Key City Brass Quintet and trombone with the "oldies" rock band Johnny D and the Doo-Wops. He also plays trombone for the local dance band Fanfare, lead trombone for the West Texas Jazz Orchestra, and trombone and euphonium with the San Angelo based combo Jazz Concho. He has also performed with the Irving Symphony, the Dallas Wind Symphony, the Dallas Tuba Quartet, Cap Rock Pro Musica Chamber Orchestra, Martha and the Vandellas, Dash Riprock and the Dragons, the Hi Roller Band, and numerous other ensembles on trombone, euphonium, and tuba. He has been featured as a soloist with several ensembles over the years such as the San Angelo Symphony, the Mansfield Wind Symphony, the Summit High School Jazz Band, and the Hardin-Simmons Concert Band. Jeff's first love is composing and arranging. He has numerous published works that have been performed across the country in various venues, and in 2006 he was honored with The International Tuba-Euphonium Association's Harvey Phillips Award for Composition Excellence for euphonium featured in jazz/rock/fusion.
