We are proud to be working with Pro Art Music to help get parts of their classic catalog back into circulation. Lowell Little’s books for brass are staples of our literature, and having this wonderful book in the shop is a privilege and an honour.
According to Little, having the ability to improvise (ad lib) is a “must” for the Jazz Musician of today. ‘Know Your Trombone” provides the fundamental essentials and ear training for the student to improvise fluently.
Obviously, nothing can be created musically that is not already a part of the student’s past experience. An improvisor is severely handicapped the moment he has to think about playing his instrument, or fails to mentally “hear” in advance what he is going to do next.
Mastery of the material in this book will enable the student to “forget his instrument and himself” and free his mind to create musical ideas (improvise).
