The Ultimate Collection of Jazz Duets Vol. 4 for B♭ trumpet and 𝄞 treble clef instruments by Rich Willey


When practicing alone, you improve only a fraction of your skills. Music is about communicating. It’s about teamwork and listening.

The more time you spend playing with others, the sooner you will become a mature player. Duets are a great way to increase your time spent in “ensemble” playing.

Vol 4: The Ultimate Collection of Jazz Duets, Volume 4, for B♭ Trumpet and other Treble Clef Instruments, 24 Jazz Duets with Play-along Tracks

Rich has written 24 fun and very hip duets written on chord changes of favorite bebop and jazz standards for intermediate to advanced players. Volume 4 uses chord changes from the following standards:

• My Romance • Well You Needn’t • Blue Bossa • St. Thomas • Ceora • Willow Weep For Me • I Wish I Knew • There Is No Greater Love • Tangerine • The Way You Look Tonight • A Day In The Life Of A Fool • On The Sunny Side Of The Street • Triste (more or less) • Contour • Solar • Recordame • My Old Flame • All Of Me • Lazy Bird • I Love You • Time After Time • All The Things You Are • Tune Up • ’Round Midnight

Comes with instructions for downloading mp3 play-along tracks (two tempos per duet), MIDI play-alongs for Band-In-A-Box/sequencing programs (permits use with all treble clef instruments), and MIDI “mock-ups” of duets with rhythm section (for those who wish to hear these duets before playing them). Play-along tracks contain no melody instruments, only piano, bass and drums.

Beautifully printed on high-quality paper and GBC comb-bound with protective mylar outer covers. If you order this in PDF format you’ll be able to download it immediately upon submission of your order.

Customer Comments

“I played through Rich Willey’s duets with my son the other day, and we enjoyed them very much. The duets are dripping with the bebop language and all have a nice flow to them. They swing and are quite lyrical at the same time. I would recommend these duets for players young and old. I think there is something there for everyone.”
BOB MINTZER, Saxophonist, composer & arranger, leader of Grammy Award-winning Big Band, professor at Manhattan School of Music
