"Highlights of Blood, Sweat & Tears And Chicago", arranged by Dwight Tibbetts.
Tuba part is 6 pages long, and the '25 or 6 to 4' tune is towards the end. Basically a medley of Chicago hits.

Let us know if you find a source.

Does anyone really care? I can't imagine why.

25 or 6 to 4 on the tuba reminds me of the joke about knowing that a tomato is a fruit, but knowing better than to put it in a fruit salad.

I talked to our horn player about this piece last evening at quintet rehearsal. She is also our librarian and treasurer. Our music library is HUGE :!: Anyway, she accumulated many pieces from her previous quintet many years ago, including this 'Chicago' piece. She told me it was sort of a one-off piece and (I think) got it thru someone who was in Tibbetts' quintet many years ago. We have many obscure/rare/one-off pieces that were never really put into print.

Glad you were able to contact Mr. Tibbetts. Looks like there are at least a couple ppl here who are interested in buying copies of this piece from him. It is (probably) the only 'complete' Chicago-hits piece for brass quintet out there :idea:
I will tell you it is a workout though - 6 pages and never comes off the face :P But you can play sections from it and not the whole thing if you choose.

Schleppy, there is one more way of transfer like when you helped me out on a hymn file, I couldn’t open (I have no idea of DG’s computer setup). More cumbersome, but working.

Make screenshots on your big desktop monitor, and send them as.png or .jpg.
