RECOMMENDED BY FORSYTH:
"This is one of our best-selling jazz titles in the MMO series, perfect not only for trumpeters but also for players of any other instrument in B flat such as clarinet or tenor saxophone. Here, the printed solo part provides not only the basic melodies for 10 popular standards – including Fly Me to the Moon and When You’re Smiling – but also a note-for-note transcription of the embellished versions performed on the demonstration recordings by Bob Zottola.
"This is a wonderful resource if you want to try out someone else’s improvisations before developing your own – all with the support of an accomplished big band."
