The World of Jazz Trumpet: A Comprehensive History & Practical Philosophy

£37.99

Product description

For the first time in the 100-year history of jazz, one of its own musicians has written the most comprehensive volume on all of the historical and methodical aspects of his instrument. Scotty Barnhart, jazz trumpet soloist and a university professor of jazz studies, has written an incredible historical survey of jazz trumpet from a unique insider's point of view.
Barnhart digs deep and examines the political, social, and musical conditions that led to the creation of the only truly American art form. He chronicles the evolution of jazz through the contributions and innovations of trumpet legends from early jazz (Louis Armstrong) and swing (Roy Eldridge), through bebop (Dizzy Gillespie), and beyond (Miles Davis, Woody Shaw).
