13 etudes by Michael Davis
Thirteen inventive etudes covering all aspects of contemporary trumpet playing composed by Michael Davis and performed by Randy Brecker, Phil Smith and Jim Hynes. These studies run the gamut of styles and approaches: scales, intervals, four part chorale, jazz phrasing, rock horn section, upper and lower registers, lead playing, etc. The accompanying CD enables you to play along with a trumpet quartet, an acoustic rhythm section, a rock horn section, a big band brass section, as well as contemporary keyboard tracks. A groundbreaking resource for trumpet players of every level.
Includes book and play‑along CD with performances by Phil Smith, Randy Brecker, and Jim Hynes.
Michael Davis has hit a home-run with Total Trumpet. This method provides a much needed resource and bridges the huge gap between the practice room and the gig.
Total Trumpet is tremendous! I highly recommend it.
