  • July 12, 2011 Some nice things

    I bought this title for our trumpet student, but it says on the book it is for Bb instruments, not just trumpet. The range is pretty extreme in some cases on the higher notes so not for most beginning/intermediate players - it can be played down an octave. Nice arrangements...

    and great tunes - background tracks are well done. On the expensive side for a play along and 2 CDs included, but not of different songs (one with full performance and one without the main solo line).

    Difficulty Level:
  • February 26, 2006 Too much ad lib

    I heartily agree with the previous reviewer: the music in the CD is actually quite approachable to play; however, Linkin ad libs so much that you might as well be listening to another book/CD. In my opinion, this greatly diminishes the value of this type of book.

    Difficulty Level:
  • February 03, 2003 Clarinet artistry

    Larry Linkin's clarinet artistry is very impressive. Unfortunately, his solo performance is so "ad lib.", that the CD and music set are not useful for learning. Great listening, poor for development of a student's ability.
