Louis Armstrong’s 44 Trumpet Solos and 125 Jazz Breaks is one of the classic Armstrong collections. The breaks in this book depart in principle on
production from any breaks on the market. They are genuine inspirations obtained, not by the old method of the artist writing down his breaks one note at a time, but from actual recordings. Special phonograph recording apparatus was employed to make them. They are red hot inspirations extracted from red hot jazz recordings.
If you want to get hot and stay hot, memorize these breaks. They will prove invaluable to all jazz trumpeters as they can be used in playing any and all dance melodies.
The solo list is so extensive that I have included the table of contents page to help you get a more complete overview. This book is an absolute blast to play through, so check out the samples and give it a try, then grab an immediate PDF download above.
