Erik Veldkamp’s 60 Progressive Swinging Blues Duet Collection comes to a grand conclusion with Volume 5. These 12 Swinging Blues Duets are the most advanced, more creative, and the most exciting of the whole lot.
Volume Five is made up of intermediate+/Advanced Duets for Trumpet. Here you see top parts venturing effortlessly above the staff, bottom parts that demand facility in th extreme low register, and counterpoint that requires lots of focused reading. The interval leaps are big and require fast arpeggiated articulation as often as they require great flexibility with the slurs. The blues groove is not only present, it is insistent, and everyone who listens to you from the stage or your studio will be snapping their fingers and tapping their toes. To get an idea of the difficulty please listen to Erik below, you are going to be very glad you did.
