Amazing Phrasing is for any trumpet player interested in learning how to improvise and how to improve their creative phrasing. The 50 ideas are divided into three main sections: Harmony - explores scales, arpeggios, chord substitutions, harmonic embellishments, and other harmonic phrasing ideas; Rhythm - covers legato tonguing, swing feel, rhythmic displacement, how to manipulate time, and other aspects of rhythmic phrasing; Melody - discusses contour lines, making patterns musical, developing a motif, building a solo, and many other melodic phrasing ideas. The companion CD contains 26 demo tracks for listening, as well as many play-along examples so you can practice improvising over various musical styles and impressions. ©2002, 102 page. Book & CD.
