For the past 40 years Nick Lane has been an active member of the Los Angeles music scene, contributing his trombone stylings and arranging/composing skills to countless live gigs and recordings, all while battling smog, earthquakes and the occasional slow speed chase.

Pinot Noir Brass Quintet (10)Pinot Noir Brass Quintet Christmas Classics The Pinot Noir Brass Quintet is a new brass ensemble comprised of 5 of LA's most sought after brass performers. With Rick Braun & Jeff Bunnell on trumpets. John Dickson on French Horn, Nick Lane on trombone and Doug Tournquist on tuba. They are all performers with too many credits to mention but they unite here for some fresh new approaches to classic Christmas songs. Look for a CD from the group soon, but until then, they offer a couple of pieces that might be playable by your brass group.

Brass Quintets (5)Looking for Christmas themed Brass Quintets? Nick's got a sleighful! “The man is richest whose pleasures are cheapest.” - Henry David Thoreau Writing music (and hearing players bring it to life) has always been one of my greatest inspirations. Pulling all-nighters, copying parts, showing up at the session/rehearsal sleep deprived…yet the joy of hearing the music come to life always made it worthwhile. Yes, published music is fine…but I’m past thinking about monetary gain. So I’m making a bunch of things available through this website for $5 each with pdf charts delivered, usually the same day. Take a look and a listen….with special thanks to my fellow Pinot Noir Brass Quintet compatriots: Jeff Bunnell & Rick Braun on trumpets, John Dickson on French Horn and Doug Tornquist on Tuba.
Big Band (6)All big band charts are written for 5 saxes, 5 trumpets, 4 trombones, piano, guitar, bass & drums.
