The World of Jazz Trumpet: A Comprehensive History and Practical
In The World of Jazz Trumpet - A Comprehensive
History and Practical Philosophy, acclaimed jazz trumpet soloist Scotty Barnhart
examines the political, social and musical conditions that led to the creation
of jazz as America's premier art form. He traces the many factors that enabled
freed slaves and their descendants to merge the blues, gospel, classical
marches, and African rhythms to create a timeless and profound art that, since
its inception, circa 1900, continues to have a major impact on all music. The
World of Jazz Trumpet is a must-have study of the jazz trumpet for students,
instructors, and professional musicians, as well as for anyone who appreciates
the genre. Readers will appreciate Barnhart's personal and professional
connection to a major part of American and world history. This book fills a
major void in the world of jazz education as well as in general music education.
With entries on 800 trumpeters, it is destined to become required reading in
thousands of colleges, schools and homes around the world.

Australia's best trumpet player (and one of the
finest in the world), James Morrison, blasting out a tune at the Twilight In
Taronga concert. Taken with my 300mm Sigma lens, ISO cranked up to max with some

One of the greatest trumpet players of this
time doing what he does best at the Rotterdam Northsea Jazz Festival 2008.

A book about Big Band musical personalities
caught backstage, on-stage, at rehearsal, in dressing rooms, in back seats of
cars, in band buses, radio stations, night clubs, and local park outdoor stages,
and high schools. Richard Grudens has asked the right questions of these
formidable stalwart performers of the past and present. His interviews with
Harry James, Benny Goodman, Count Basie, Teddy Wilson, Billy Eckstine, and Buddy
Rich are rare gems mostly because these personalities, at this particular time
of their lives, resisted interviews and personal studies for one reason or
another. Others like Frankie Laine, Woody Herman, Lionel Hampton, Tony Bennett,
and Sarah Vaughan, were willing and gracious hosts who revealed valuable
information for future historians of the genre to ponder. Each interview and
encounter was expertly and charmingly photographed by former news photographer,
Camille Smith who was able to catch each subject in his own special way, and
some captured on film by Grudens' long-time friend, Gus Young.
