Joe Allard’s Advanced Rhythms includes 134 rhythmical exercises ideal for transposition, sightreading in syncopation, and authentic phrasing with a beat.
I have chosen to include this book in both the trumpet methods section and the jazz methods section because the cross-over appeal is extremely high. For anyone working on their improv, this is a perfect tool for honing your chops. For anyone who plays in a big band, orchestra, or local band, you know how important it is to be able to read anything put in front of you. The only way to do it well, is to do it often. Joe Allard knew this, and this method gives you 47 pages of fantastic reading material to go through.
