This book, BIG GOLDEN TRUMPET ENCYCLOPEDIA, is by far the best of its kind. It really should be called the “Gigging Trumpet Players’ Bible.” I believe this book to be what every trumpet player should have, whether he plays for fun or professionally. This collection of pop, standards, and oldies but goodies, can serve all the needs of every player.
The trumpet is one of the most colourful and romantic musical instruments of all time, capable of super range, such as that of Maynard Ferguson or the sweet sounds like those of Bobby Hackett. This versatility makes the trumpet one of the most popular instruments today among the young beginning music students.
Some of these arrangements are for solo performance, others for duet performance, which makes this book ideal for the serious student looking for a variety of performance material and perfect for the players who play just for the fun of it.
In the samples you will find the full list of tunes, including those by Al Hirt, Louis Armstrong, Harry James, Herb Alpert, and Danny Davis. The keen observer will also note that the book opens with a section from Herb Alpert’s “Know Before You Blow” to help get your chops set and ready to play efficiently.
