Basin street blues - Easy jazz trumpet solo!

Welcome to this blog post where, in the video, I am playing the melody (as you might at a jam session or your own performance) to basin street blues, followed by an easy, written out solo (etude).

The solo is quite easy with a limited playing range of one octave, no semi quaver (16th notes) passages, no high notes or sustained passages.

Perfect for early intermediate players interested in playing some jazz pieces!

I have tried to make the music in the video big enough for you to play along with the music if you wish.

The solo comes from this book (also available in C, Eb & bass clef.

If you would like to try some other solos for free and download them, you can -

  1. Subscribe to the jazz etudes newsletter where I send you a whole bunch of free resources!

  2. Watch this VIDEO of summertime and follow the link in the description for the free download!

I hope you enjoy the video and the free resources should you choose to download them!

Warm regards, Darren. Jazz Etudes.
