Erik Veldkamp’s “The Swing Starter Kit 2” is the much anticipated follow up to his best-selling call and response jazz series. Erik knows that to learn to play in the jazz style, for both beginner players and established professionals, it is best to do so by imitating a great model. To make this possible at home, Erik Veldkamp wrote 45 more play-alongs for trumpet (91 in total across both books). The first 31 in this book are in a call-and-response (or question-and-answer) format. Along with a rhythm section, you hear Erik play the phrases first with correct jazz articulation and style, then you imitate it immediately after. For some reason, a book like this has never been written, until now, and I am thrilled for you to see it.
This book is divided into 3 parts:
1. 15 basic swing exercises with a drum track to accompany you;
2. 15 swing exercises with a rhythm section accompanying you;
3. 15 swing studies with a rhythm track (+ complete demo recordings)

In the samples, I am placing the first of each section so you can see how simply these begin. The audio for the respective pages is below, so you can play along for free. I guarantee that if you are an aspiring jazz player, or a teacher of some, this book is going to become the backbone of your jazz-style practice.
