This third edition in the new Signature series of jazz trumpet titles from Music Minus One is more jazzy and less laid back than the previous editions. Try to match top American soloist Bob Zottola on these eight Great American Song Book classics, then play-a-long to the backing tracks and take the lead yourself.
The art of jazz improvisation requires a detailed knowledge of the original vocal lines to the Great American Song Book classics that form the heart of the jazz repertoire. Learn them here as sung by some of the great singers of the 20th Century, and then discover how to play them in the style of US trumpet great Bob Zottola and finally take the lead yourself.
The package contains a beautifully presented sheet music album featuring a transcription of the original lead vocal line in parallel with Bob Zottola's suggested ornamented trumpet line. The enclosed CD features the tracks both with and without the lead trumpet line, so you can hear Bob Zottola's example and then take the lead yourself. A great practice aid or a wonderful gift for the trumpeter in your life.
