Maximum Mastery for B-flat Trumpet
12 jazz etudes by Tim Hagans, Greg Gisbert and Scott Wendholt
Twelve innovative jazz etudes written and performed by three of today’s most progressive jazz trumpet players. Tim Hagans, Greg Gisbert and Scott Wendholt are joined by an all-star New York rhythm section of Phil Markowitz on piano, Jay Anderson on bass and John Riley on drums. Hear how Tim, Greg and Scott approach each etude on the first track and then play along with the rhythm section on the following track. An added bonus at the end of the book is the music to Three Wise Men (Tim, Greg and Scott’s three trumpet tour de force from the Brass Nation CD) complete with their transcribed solos. An important resource for all jazz players.
Includes book and play‑along CD with performances by Tim Hagans, Greg Gisbert and Scott Wendholt.
Each one of these etudes is a gem. Well produced, swinging, and a complete must for every serious trumpet player . . . . for that matter, serious players of every instrument.
A great book for all jazz players. Tim, Greg, and Scott are three of the most creative soloists around. This book is a rare opportunity to gain insight into their improvisational and compositional approaches.
