Here is my "Brass Tacks".
Instrumentation: Trumpets, "French" horns, one tuba and (gasp) euphoniums.
It's good to know that we can always count on you for a musical smile! You also have the occasional bit of unexpected musical mischief!
If I could use one adjective to describe your stuff, i'd use "puckish." That's a compliment.
Good, idiomatic writing, especially as regards choice of keys.
Last transition out of Bb back into Dmi is nice.
Love the "Peter Gunn"-ish ending.
Of course, the presence of euphoniums adds immeasurably to the quality of the performance.

You've done it again!
Experience what is necessary to build upon self character, for that is Life's most significant learning event.
I knew we could count on you for another great piece for Horns.
Love that finishing chord!

Thanks for giving it a listen, Mr. Ron.
Very well done brass writing in this, Larry -- and
quite a good rendering, as well. Snorlax's puckery
notwithstanding (he's an alum addict, you know),
this would be well worth scoring up and getting
out there... I would think many a brass ensemble
would find this an inviting offering!
