The Jazz Articulation Big Book 2 carries on exactly where Volume 1 left off (116 pages), first with a quick refresher on the different approaches you will come to recognize between old-style swing feel and modern jazz articulation. Once you are comfortable with early styles of articulation, ghosted notes, doodle tonguing, accents, target notes, and maintaining airflow without blocking, you are taken through a series of 12 exercises in swing articulation highlighting and isolating the biggest hurdles you will have to clear before you are performance ready.

After Erik’s thoughts on the biggest changes in jazz articulation over the years, and his freshly composed set of exercises that you can use to put each of these concepts into practice, the book concludes with 24 more complete, note-for-note transcriptions from trumpeters like King Oliver, Armstrong, Beiderbecke, Eldridge, Gillespie, Navarro, Davis, Brown, Louis Smith, Buck Clayton, Sweets Edison, Dorham, Little, Terry, Mitchell, baker, Hubbard, Marsalis, Ambrosetti, Brecker, Kisor, and more.

To the left you will see a big set of samples to give you an idea of what you are in for. When you are ready to get serious about your interpretation of jazz style, click above for an immediate digital download so you can dig into this incredible method.
