Famous but tough Dizzy Gillespie doodle tonguing lick 3

Posted on February 19, 2012 by Greg London

I was asked a while back from a fellow trumpet player that follows the site if I could show him a Dizzy Gillespie Jazz lick and/or trumpet trick. He showed me a video, and I started working it up, but never had the time to perfect it. What I’m saying is that I’m still in […] Read the rest of this entry…

If you haven’t seen this Jazz video of James Morrison on You Tube yet, you’re in for a real treat.

Nicholas Payton trumpet solo on It Could Happen To You

Posted on May 09, 2009 by Sweets

This Jazz trumpet solo of Nicholas Payton starts off nicely on the head with just guitar and trumpet. I really like how it sounded. Nicholas Payton uses a lot of skips with fourth patterns that sound like he is taking his trumpet solo outside. That is probably why I like this Nicholas Payton trumpet solo.

A simple diminished pattern

Posted on April 12, 2009 by Sweets

Here is a simple diminished pattern. I remember learning this lick from another trumpet player I used to work with. All I did was ask him for any diminished patterns he could teach me on the fly. This is what he taught me. Sound sample on trumpet: How to learn the lick in 12 keys: […] Read the rest of this entry…
