This reissue of Music for Brass Trio, A Comprehensive Bibliography has 80 pages listing 544 original and transcribed works for three brass up to and available in 1976 of which many are still available. Included are 169 works for the Trumpet, Horn, and Trombone trio with detailed performance annotations and 63 works for the Two Trumpets and Trombone trio. An additional 312 original and transcribed works are listed for three heterogeneous brass instruments with keyboard, in chamber ensembles of up to nine performers, and with small orchestra using only three brass.

At the time it was the most comprehensive guide with 544 entries of music for three brass and it remains an important resource as many of the works listed are still available. The bibliography was adopted by university libraries and distributed by major music companies including Robert King Music.
