Wynton Marsalis soloing with Lincoln Center 1

Posted on August 22, 2009 by Sweets

Here’s a nice Jazz trumpet solo by Wynton Marsalis on trumpet with the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra. There are some very nice Jazz licks that are used in this trumpet solo. It is also just a very enjoyable Jazz trumpet solo all together. I don’t know the name of this tune, if anyone could help […] Read the rest of this entry…

Leroy Jones trumpet solo on Bourbon Street Parade 2

Posted on August 06, 2009 by Sweets

Leroy Jones doesn’t start taking his trumpet solo until the 3:15 mark on the video. Craig Klein took a very energetic trombone solo as well but if you want to skip ahead, feel free to do so. Leroy Jones does some circular breathing on a G above the staff, pretty cool if you ask me. […] Read the rest of this entry…

Roy Hargrove and Art Farmer soloing together 5

Posted on July 22, 2009 by Sweets

Two very different Jazz trumpet styles, Roy Hargrove with a more edgy sound and built up trumpet solo and Art Farmer playing a flumpet had a more mellow sound and went right into soloing strong without the build.  The duet is pretty catchy sounding, but the Jazz trumpet solos is what I’m interested in. Who […] Read the rest of this entry…

Randy Brecker trumpet solo at Jazz Land

Posted on July 19, 2009 by Sweets

I’ve always enjoyed the unique Jazz trumpet style of Randy Brecker. There are some really nice diminished patterns that Randy Brecker repeats of few times in this trumpet solo. The trumpet solo starts off with a harmon mute, then Randy plays the rest of the solo open. Why he did this, I don’t know. It’s […] Read the rest of this entry…

Awesome Freddie Hubbard trumpet solo on Cherokee 2

Posted on July 09, 2009 by Sweets

I just had to share this awesome muted Freddie Hubbard trumpet solo on Cherokee with you. I’ve never heard Freddie Hubbard play the trumpet so fast and have so many good ideas at the same time. When you watch this Jazz video, keep an eye on Freddie Hubbard’s fingers and see how clean his trumpet […] Read the rest of this entry…

Scott Englebright trumpet solo on Maynard Ferguson 3

Posted on June 28, 2009 by Sweets

If you haven’t watched this great Jazz video of Scott Englebright (aka “Scooter”) performing the tune Maynard Ferguson you’re in for a real treat. That’s right, Maynard Ferguson is the name of the tune. I always thought that was a weird name for a tune. What do you think? This was when Scott Englebright was […] Read the rest of this entry…

Jon Faddis playing trumpet high notes on Mood Indigo

Posted on June 26, 2009 by Sweets

You’re really going to love this trumpet solo of Jon Faddis on Mood Indigo if you haven’t heard it yet in the many references I’ve made to it. If you have heard it, you’ll still love to hear it again because it’s just that good. Jon Faddis plays a bunch of lip trills on a […] Read the rest of this entry…

Freddie Hubbard trumpet solo on Open Sesame

Posted on June 20, 2009 by Sweets

This Jazz trumpet solo of Freddie Hubbard is really great. Very melodic and builds very nicely. The tune Open Sesame, from the album Open Sesame, switches back and forth between G minor and C minor (I think – let me know by commenting). Lots of cool minor Jazz licks to take advantage of in this […] Read the rest of this entry…
