It Don’t Mean A Thing…(20 Swinging Play-Alongs) By Erik Veldkamp


Digital Download

Are you looking for a trumpet play-along book that is focused on straight ahead swing? Then this is the book for you! These 20 tunes are steady swing standards, brought back to life and paired with beautifully rendered backing tracks, and complete with demo recordings by the author himself.

Erik Veldkamp is back at it with this wonderful swing collection, focused on tunes by Charlie Parker, Horace Silver, Bernie Miller, Billy Strayhorn, Arlen & Koehler, Duke Ellington, Kern & Mercer, Dizzy Gillespie, Wes Montgomery, and many more. When you check the song list below you are guaranteed to know them all, so you know exactly what you will be getting. In the sample pages I picked out three favourites for you to try, and I attached recordings of Erik playing each one, so please dig in and see what’s in store.

Check out the full song list and audio recordings below, samples to the left, and click above for an immediate digital download.
