The first comprehensive study of modern jazz trumpet playing.
The book contains a personal history of jazz trumpet, a selected discography, and in-depth analysis of phrasing, articulation, valve technique and alternate fingerings, as well as exercises to develop jazz articulation, rhythmic diversity and finger coordination.
"At last! Jazz trumpet players finally have a book of their own! John thoroughly covers the main topics relating to jazz trumpet technique. I especially liked his informative history of modern jazz trumpet. I highly recommend The Art of Jazz Trumpet to both students and professionals."
- RANDY BRECKER
"A great book!"
- CLARK TERRY
