  • February 21, 2012 Fantastic Book

    I have been playing to backing CD's for a number of years and the quality can be variable to say the least. This book however is in the top bracket and I give this rating for the following reasons 1) the quality of the backing track 2) the arrangements...

    . With a mix of verse/instrumental and verse/instrumental/verse I've found them great also for playing at open mics and also for singing and playing on the same piece. 3) The range of music from up beat to romantic and from latin to waltz 4) Having a written solo and the written chords so you can have a go yourself when you're a bit more confident. The written solos are also very empathetic to the trumpet 5) A good mix of well known stds as well as good songs 6) The key signatures and range fit perfectly for the trumpet I also bought his Broadway book and that's equally as good. Both are money well spent.

  • September 17, 2011 Very Appropriate

    After retiring from the Air Force (22 years and 20 of that with the Air Force Band) and 25 years with a printing company, I started playing at Nursing Homes, Assisted Living Facilities and church functions. This book is an absolute staple for the people I play for. It is...

    all music from their era and seeing fingers and toes tapping to the music is all the payment that a person needs. Carl Strommen is a genius with his arrangements. And as a matter of fact, the purchase of this particular book was for a friend (outstanding trumpet player - Jerry S. from our old college "dance" band days) that may join me in playing for a "Happy Hour" at one of the Assisted Living Facilites. His life will never be the same after he sees the reaction to his playing. Thank you SheetMusicPlus for having this kind of music. I have 4 of Carl Strommen's books and hope you can convince him to do more just like this one. IT IS JUST A LOT OF FUN!

  • February 13, 2009 Strommen arrangements rock!

    My only wish is that there were more trumpet accompaniments available by Carl Strommen. I've enjoyed every one immensely. Even the most seasoned pro will enjoy the flexibility in these arrangments and Strommen's style.

  • January 29, 2009 Great Songs and Arrangements

    This is an excellent book with great arrangements that are easy to learn and follow. It is challenging yet not so hard that you can't enjoy playing and the selection of tunes are great.
