The first time I heard Charles Lazarus’ “Solo Setting” I was absolutely mesmerized. Not only was the technique, sound, and facility I was hearing completely unparalleled, the creativity and innovative arrangements were truly unlike anything I had ever heard before. It is my great pleasure to have the album transcriptions available for the first time ever, bundled together with the full album audio, so you can enter the Lazarus soundscape and work through the arrangements on your horn. There are audio samples below, for the uninitiated, and if you make it to the end of “Kilauea’s Fountains” and your jaw is not on the floor, I simply don’t believe you!

“Solo Settings” is full of dazzlingly original music for solo trumpet in a variety of settings featuring eclectic grooves and percussion from around the world. Filled with virtuosic playing, inventive writing, and unique instrumental pairings, it will capture your imagination.

This album transcription includes ten of the thirteen tracks, the most appropriate for personal practice and performance, and each have flexible instrumentation so you can make them work on your own or with a variety of different collaborators. Don’t have a band? Don’t worry, the solo parts will keep you busy for a very long time! Be sure to listen below and follow along with the samples to the left.

    This has LONG been a favorite album of mine. Charles is such a fine player, and he really shines one this one. Be aware, however, some things are VERY different from the original recording.. The differences are sometimes quite subtle, other times not so much. Still- completely worthwhile.
