Written for a wide variety of musicians, 15 Easy Jazz, Blues & Funk Etudes will appeal to both aspiring players and to more experienced musicians. For the younger player, particular care is given to range, rhythmic figures and overall playability. The more accomplished musician will appreciate the high level of musicality, the lyrical compositions and the opportunities to improvise. Either way, the format is simple: Bob Mintzer plays and demonstrates each etude with a stellar rhythm section on the included recording. You learn each etude slowly. When ready, you play the etude with the audio accompaniment.

  • March 19, 2012 Great for students

    A great introduction to jazz for trumpet students who've been learning for a year or so. Some of the tunes will extend the range of younger students, but there is always the option for them to take portions down the octave and several of the tunes don't go...

    any higher than third space C.Overall a good chance for students to get started with jazz phrasing playing along with some of the world's best musicians. I find the tunes "Funky" and "Waltz" good to get started for kids with limited range.
