Meet James Morrison - an international trumpet virtuoso from Australia, who is known for his startling originality and passion for playing the trumpet. Having played with the likes of Dizzy Gillespie, Wynton Marsalis, Ray Charles and B.B. King, Morrison shares his four decades of experience in this instructional DVD.
Learn his innovative techniques with tutorials in topics like breathing, range, endurance, articulation and projection. There is some playing during his description of jazz technique such as "shakes", "falls", "doits", and so forth, but the bulk of the DVD is a spoken lecture divided into chapters. Chapters include: breathing, sound, range, endurance, articulation (great teaching example done on this chapter with James playing), projection, warm ups, tuning, equipment and circular breathing.
