    ... And his "method" starts with a genuine Parduba #5 mouthpiece as he played since playing trumpet with Benny Goodman's orchestra. Like so many other method books, it is just as likely a publisher's paid artist endorsement put together by someone else and just as similar to so many other method books.

    There is one available on Amazon--used for $546.74 including the shipping. I suspect you will have some time to gather the money if you need it.

    It was a collaboration between Harry and his father Everette James.

    It is a method book, yes. Similar to others, hard to say. There is quite a bit packed into that small book.

    They come up on Ebay regularly, for not more than a few dollars, $25 or so.

    I have my own copy and have sold two copies on Ebay.

    Harry's personal method was a drinking water glass full of Beefeaters gin to warm up............. Back then they couldn't write stuff like that in a method book.

    I seem to remember reading somewhere that Harry's father (who was his first teacher) required that his son master a page in the Arban's daily. Now that's a method!
