    Love it! First used these arrangements on SmartMusic where it is listed under "solo", then had to play them with friends. They use SmartMusic - I bring this book. Great recording musicians! I am learning styles listening to the recording and imitating, also book contains lots of style tips. Every arrangement...

    is great. It has encouraged me to increase my range to play high parts, to learn to listen and blend with the recorded trumpet section, and to find others to play with. Now I am looking for a big band - and I think I have found a big band ensemble class at the local community college! There is a lot more to swing than eighth notes and this music book helps me understand that. I am a comeback player who took a 38 year break after high school. I've been playing 18 months and this is just what I need to get to the next level.
