I was revisiting, recently, the film of A Chorus Line and it has some superb wind playing in it. Would anyone know who played the lead trumpet part? Thanks.

For an example, go to ca. 223.

Bob Millikan played the show for 15 or so years in NYC. Don't know if he's on the film, but he's a hell of a lead player.

I believe Randy Brecker played on the soundtrack.

working overnights anyway. I found something after getting some pictures of album covers up on google. On the original cast recording it lists three trumpet players: Al Mattaliano, James Morealle, and Bob Millikin, with Millikins name having an asterisk as a regular session musician for columbia records I guess. Hope that helps a little.

Most def a NY session.

At that time, those 4 plus Marvin Stamm, Johnnie Frosk & Bob Millikan were the mainstays for any recording session - jingles, record dates, TV shows, movies & such.

Yes there were other trumpet guys who were busy in the studios, but that bunch were the busiest.

So what you're saying is if my community theater does Chorus Line I'll have no pressure measuring up...Not!

The movie music was very different from the show books.

Don't get me wrong - the show books (both the original and the 2006 B'way revival version) have some challenging sections. It is a very fun show to play.

And some original theater songs were deleted and some new ones added (or modified) for the film.

I just finished a run of “A Chorus Line” at Rabbit Run theater. It is quite a book, 3 trpt parts and 3 t-bn parts too. The first number blows your lips off!

That is indeed a line up of hall of famers
