This book teams up Grammy winner Lennie Niehaus and jazz trombonist Rick Simerly for a set of exciting jazz solos written for the intermediate trombone player. These 14 jazz solos were specially written for Jamey Aebersold's popular "Volume 54 Maiden Voyage" Play-A-Long and since they are by Lennie, you know they swing and are fun to play! To make it even better, we've included a Play-A-Long/demonstration CD with jazz trombone master Rick Simerly playing the solos with the Volume 54 accompaniment tracks to demonstrate proper jazz feel and interpretation. Lennie writes, Rick plays. You listen, play and learn. Enjoy!

    Nowhere in any of the descriptions of this book did it say that it was identical to the trumpet version of the same book. Same exact exercises, played an octave lower. One could reasonably expect that something trombone-oriented would have been presented. Rather it is just a collection of...

    8th-note lines that play and sound like an etude. Boring lines, and fairly non-musical. Lennie Niehaus may have written them, but personally I think he dialed this one in. I know that's harsh, but I think it is an honest assessment.
