Trumpet
Instrumental Solo Part and CD. Published by Music Minus One (MO.MMOCD3853).

Item Number: MO.MMOCD3853
ISBN 1596157410.

Along with Louis Armstrong, Bix Beiderbecke was one of the first jazz musicians to become renowned for his improvised solos. His unique style comes out of an interesting mixture of musical influences, some still well-known and some almost forgotten. His improvisations were based on the harmonies of the wonderful popular songs of his time, many of which are now recognized today as standards. His use of vibrato, a clear and bell-like attack, accurate intonation and an overall "solid" style make his music a modern revelation to those who haven't heard him. Join jazz trumpet master Peter Ecklund in this exploration of Beiderbecke's unique style. He demonstrates each of these golden musical standards, then you step in and perform as soloist with the band!

Includes a newly engraved, authoritative printed solo part, and a compact disc containing a complete version with soloist, in digitally recorded stereo; then a digital stereo version of the accompaniment, minus the soloist.

  • October 31, 2007 Terrific Package

    This is one of the most inspiring sets of CD/sheet music I've ever tried. The trascriptions are very accurate and the backing group is well-balanced and sounds authentic. Great fun to play and a real learning experience. Wish there were more packages this good.

  • June 30, 2007 Great Opportunity to Play Dixieland like Bix

    I've purchased and played along with many Music Minus One CD's over the years. This is one of the very best and most enjoyable for me. There are 20 tracks: 10 with the full band (including the trumpet) and 10 without the trumpet. The transcriptions of Bix's...

    solos are very accurate (including even the false fingerings Bix sometimes used) and the chord changes are included throughout. The accompanying dixieland band is very spirited (I love the bass sax). Overall, a winner in my book.
