Trombone Unaccompanied Tenor
An Extension of Standard Trombone Technique and an Introduction to Some New Ones. Composed by Alan Raph / Bill Watrous. Classical. Student book. With Standard notation. 48 pages. Carl Fischer #O005130. Published by Carl Fischer (CF.O5130).

Item Number: CF.O5130

ISBN 082580342X. Text: Bill Watrous / Alan Raph.

Oriented towards the jazz and commercial tenor or bass trombone player, this book is a set of 47 one-page "units," each with a few short exercises on each concept. Unlike many technique books, this book does not just present a series of large etudes with many technical problems. Instead, each unit focuses on a specific trombonistic technical issue (lip-break articulations, glissando, chord progressions, etc). It also contains a nice section on "doodle" tonguing. The included demo CD contains recorded examples by Watrous (tenor) and Raph (bass) of most of the exercises.

    Many of the techniques in this book are intended for special performances, such as "growling" and "multiphonic" but the tonguing techniques are very helpful. I think this book is a must-read for anyone interested in playing music at more than a beginner level. And be sure to search for...

    videos featuring the author... he is quite amazing to hear!

    Trombonisms is a wealth of information for all brass players, not just Trombones. The techniques discussed really do work and explanation is articulate. The book is best known for the doodle tongue approach but information on slide technique and range extension is invaluable. Best book by far for trombone technique...
