PE1 Louis Armstrong's Great Trumpet Solos transcribed by Peter Ecklund. The solos in this book are from recordings from 1925-1937, including some of Louis' most famous solos. For reasons of copyright we are unable to reproduce the melodies of the tunes - what you get here are the improvisations. The recordings have been issues many times on CD, LP and cassette. (They are frequently remastered at the wrong pitch. You will have to find a way to correct ofr this problem by using a CD or cassette player with pitch control). . . Practice each solo as if it were an etude, starting very slowly but playing it in time as much as possible. When you have it under your fingers, try playing along with the recording, imitating Louis as well as you can. Play close attention to the rhythm. Some of thte figures in this book are slightly simplified to make them possible to read, so you won't really understand them unless you listen carefully to the recordings. When you can play a solo as Louis played it, try playing it your way, experimenting with the rhythms and the notes while staying within the meter and the chords. Excerpted from Preface by Peter Ecklund.

CC1065 Trumpet Routines, by William Vacchiano; reproduced from the author's manuscript. "Repetition", Vacchiano teaches, "is the mother of perfection." Drawing on more than 40 years' experience as one of the foremost orchestral trumpet players (New York Philharmonic) and teachers (Juilliard) of his time, Vacchiano has contrived an ingenious set of 11 routines that challenge every aspect of musicianship and technique. Each routine is made up of a series of excercises wherein are heard echoes of Wagner, Mahler, Stravinsky, Rimsky-Korsakov, et al. Vacchiano has artfully created his method from the idioms of the standard repertoire. This approach should be especially helpful for players preparing to confront the rigors of the orchestral literature.
