Lock Horns was written for Ben Van Dijk and José Milton Vieira.
After a dramatic introduction, a waltz ballad starts to float.
A beautiful melody rises from both players, each expressing themselves in their own way.
Halfway the waltz, both players try to find each other by connecting into one melody.
But they can’t seem to stop quarrel. In a Latin fight both players push themselves to the maximum and try to prove their point.
In the end, they agree to disagree.
1 Tenor Trombone
