John ColtraneAis jazz composition, Giant Steps, is regarded as one of the most difficult songs for improvisation. This is especially true for trumpet players because of the inherent limitations of their instrument. AiTrane for TrumpetAi is a highly structured approach to help trumpeters achieve this pinnacle goal of playing Giant Steps as a jazz soloist. Using a progressive system of 79 exercises and jazz etudes, AiTrane for TrumpetAi helps the trumpet player become more accustomed to the key center shifts in a way which is idiomatic to the trumpet. All other literature written to help students learn Giant Steps is written for the saxophone. AiTrane for TrumpetAi is specifically written for trumpet, by a trumpet player, and covers the full trumpet range while approaching the harmonies in a more trumpet-friendly styleAlthough we have more flexibility, greater range and more facile technique than a singer, we are not quite in league with pianists, violinists or even sax ... I categorize aquot;Instrumental style is evolvedfrom manual rather than vocal capability.
