Excellent book for the mature player
Clarke's fourth and final book has truly difficult characteristic studies a la Arban and Clarke's own superb cornet solos. The solos are really tough and rely a lot on reptitivc triple tongueing. If you are a serious trumpet player, you will get this book. It's tough, but rewarding.
