Hip to The Blues Book 2 published by Santorella Publications is everything you enjoyed and appreciated from the first series and more. With 22 new jazz duets edited and arranged by Jonathon Robbins, this time written in accommodating keys. All three winds (Eb, Bb & C) have the ability to play together in any combination.
The CD is recorded in the same fashion as Volume 1 whereas the duet is played in entirety (both parts) if your stereo is evenly balanced. Move the balance to right or left channel to isolate the top or bottom (1st or 2nd) part and play along with Chris Tedesco, one of the best studio trumpet players in Los Angeles today. Originally written for trumpet, so this is where this whole series all began. Includes the following Jonathon Robbins originals.
The Five Seventeen • Blue Boppin' Bossa • Assembly Line • Ba-do-ba-dee-bop • Lazy Summer • Two Note Blues • Mr. Modulation • Strolling Down the Avenue • The "Do Nothing" Blues • Road Trip • Runaway Blues • Hazy Sunset • Rainy Afternoon Blues • Blue Lullaby • Variations • Monday Morning Blues • I can't Stop • Making the Best of It • Kickin' Back • Deep in Thought • The River Keeper Blues • Until Next Time
