Jazz Phrasing Studies by Greg Fishman. Includes CD’s This book features ten melodic pieces which are easy to play, yet convey the essence of mainstream (Swing/Bebop/Bossa) jazz vocabulary. The pieces are catchy and melodic, demonstrating the use of sequence and voice-leading to make a musical statement.
This book includes a play-along CD featuring master trumpeter Victor Garcia playing each song with a world-class rhythm section. The CD also includes tracks featuring Greg Fishman demonstrating each song on alto saxophone, giving trumpet players the option of playing along with Victor Garcia on trumpet or with Greg Fishman on alto saxophone.
In addition, there are play-along tracks featuring just the rhythm section. These tracks are great for practicing the songs, chords, scales, voice-leading lines and soloing over the chords progressions.
Jazz Phrasing for Trumpet will provide valuable insights into a melodic approach to jazz improvisation. This book is recommended for trumpet players of all levels who wish to improve their tone, articulation, phrasing, and understanding of thematic development.
