10 Harmonic Duet Etudes with play-along accompaniment for Bb Trumpet
Charles William Porter
SOUND-WORLD DUETS takes you on a journey through ten distinct realms of sound. Part evocative music, part technical manual, Sound-World Duets will challenge your playing skills and also expand your understanding of how certain atmospheres are created through music.
The CD (download link to mp3's included inside book) offers a variety of fun play-a-long options for each duet, including: accompaniment backing tracks, accompaniment backing tracks with pre-recorded partner 1 or 2, and partner 1 & 2 backing tracks without the accompaniment.
Each backing track features a unique instrumentation and style, ranging from a standard jazz rhythm section to an afro-cuban ensemble, a woodwind quartet with tympani, strings and percussion, a polka brass band and even a heavy metal band. Though the duets can be played without them, the backing tracks add to the diversity of each sound world, making the journey even more exciting!
