Al Hirt’s “Honey in the Horn” is a collection of trumpet transcriptions with full piano accompaniment that is meant to highlight the unique style of one of jazz’s most influential trumpeters.
Styled after his release history with RCA and Victor Records, whose high sales established Hirt as one of the nation’s top recording artists, these solos offer a great overview of Al Hirt’s style and legacy on the trumpet. With the included piano parts, players can take these solos into clubs and onto the stage. The range from High C and below, these are accessible to players from an intermediate level and beyond, making them a great stepping stone for players ready to take on more advanced solos. The chord changes are included as well, so when the player is ready to improvise on his own in the Style of Al Hirt, the opportunity awaits him.
