The drums, bass, and piano come in, and play for sixteen counts, then the trumpet melody 
in, which goes like this:

e|------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------13-------|
G|-----------------13-15-13/15~----13-15----------|
D|----15-15-----15--------------------------13-15-|
A|------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------|

Wait seven counts, then play it again:

e|------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------13-------|
G|-----------------13-15-13/15~----13-15----------|
D|----15-15-----15--------------------------13-15-|
A|------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------|

Wait seven more counts, then play this:


The slide from 12 to 13 is optional, you can just play 13 and 16, but the slide gives it 
more jazzy sound

About the artist behind Cantaloupe Island Tab:

Herbert Jeffrey Hancock (born April 12, 1940) is an Academy Award and Grammy award-winning American jazz pianist and composer. He embraces elements of rock and soul while adopting freer stylistic elements from jazz.

As part of Miles Davis's 'second great quintet', Hancock helped redefine the role of a jazz rhythm section, and was one of the primary architects of the "post-bop" sound. Later, he was one of the first jazz musicians to embrace synthesizers and funk. Yet for all his restless experimentalism, Hancock's music is often melodic and accessible; he has had many songs "cross over" and achieved success among pop audiences.

Hancock's best-known solo works include "Cantaloupe Island", "Watermelon Man" (later performed by dozens of musicians, including bandleader Mongo Santamaria), "Maiden Voyage", "Chameleon", and the singles "I Thought It Was You" and "Rockit". His 2007 tribute album, "River: The Joni Letters" won the 2008 Grammy Award for Album of the Year, only the second jazz album to win the award.
