50 Hot Trumpet Licks By Ziggy Elman


Digital Download

From the foreword, but the composer:

It is the purpose of this book to help the trumpet player gain a clearer insight into the style of one of America’s premier hot men, and apply this style to his own purposes.

The licks contained in this volume have all been transcribed from the most popular swing records of the past few years. Many of them from records made with Benny Goodman and his orchestra, others from my own recordings under the Bluebird label. In addition I have included, for the purpose of variety, licks as played by some of my colleagues who are famous for their trumpet virtuosity. Only the important phrase marks have been included, as it is desired that the reader get the ‘feel’ of the licks himself. A hot chorus is presented at the conclusion exactly as I play it.

Trumpet technique requires lung and arduous practice and the helps and hints in this little volume will prove a handy short-cut to improving your own style.

Take a lookout a few sample “licks” to the left and then click above to get an immediate PDF download of the entire book.
