Many people will recognize some of these wonderful jazz studies from Bower’s other great book “Bop Duets”. “Bop” is subtitled “22 Stylistic Studies for all Treble Clef Instruments”. These studies were written by Bugs Bower and edited by the great Warren Vache. They are challenging while remaining absolutely playable by the intermediate trumpeter. They include chord symbols throughout so you can perform with a rhythm section or improvise. Each is a complete Bower original and there is a ton to digest here.
