"Rose Room", also known as "In Sunny Roseland", is a 1917 jazz standard; music by Art Hickman, lyrics by Harry Williams. Duke Ellington later used the song's chord progression in his 1939 composition "In a Mellow Tone".

This charming arrangement was made famous by Vic Meyers and His Orchestra, and features a trumpet soli section in the style of seminal 1920s trumpeter Bix Beiderbecke.

Melbourne's Cairo Club Orchestra commissioned me to transcribe and arrange this score from the 1928 recording, and to transpose the vocal chorus from its original key of A into D major, so as to suit their leader, vocalist and trumpeter Peter Milley.

Commissioned note

Difficulty note

Suitable for authentic, 1920s-style dance bands ('pre-big-band'). Jazz bands. Big bands (stage bands). Perhaps a subset of an orchestra or concert/military band.
