This is the 3rd book in Erik Veldkamp’s incredible Play Along series, full of original tunes in all styles for trumpet. Level 3 is the start of the intermediate difficulty solos, and with a touch of added range and rhythmic complexity Erik is able to weave together some really amazing tunes.
Unlike other play along books that stick to classical or straight ahead jazz, Erik’s series covers ALL modern styles. This collection alone ranges from Disco, Blues, Swing, British Rock, Latin, Pop, Marches, Hip Hop, Country, Bossa, Tango, Flamenco and more. There is so much variety here it is hard to convey, so I am putting three full recordings below to give you an idea. You can play along using the sample pages, then grab an immediate PDF download above.
