Bobby Shew’s “Exercises and Etudes for both Jazz and Classical Trumpet Players” is an astute collection of motifs gleaned from many years of experience and many different players. These exercises will develop technique and finger dexterity as well as sharpening aural skills and harmonic perception. Assiduous practice of this material will provide the player with vastly increased intimacy with their instrument and greatly shorten the distance between thought and execution. Bobby Shew is one of the giants of the current jazz age with deep experience in both performance and education. Bobby Shew is a Yamaha Performing Artist.
