"This book is designed to help trumpeters become more familiar with the language of jazz and hone their reading skills. It can be used as a teaching tool, for practice or performance. I feel like this is a great tool for learning jazz phrasing because when playing duets, players are constantly listening to each other for phrasing, feel and intonation. The duets start out with easier pieces and progress to fairly difficult pieces, acquiring trickier rhythms, using more advanced harmonies and expanding the range of the trumpet along the way. . . " Erik Jekabson

"I love Erik's book. It is the most comprehensive, practical, demanding and entertaining jazz book I have ever had the pleasure of playing through.. It requires the players to listen, play good time and, by the end of the book, create your own music . . . all the elements of jazz for players of all levels". - Mario Guarneri
