    What are some of the "must have" duet books that every trumpet player should have around?

    The Amsden Duets are fun. The duets in the Mel Broiles books are challenging and entertaining.
    That's a start :cool:

    duet books

    The Chris Gekker book of duets is good. Some of them are a little weird but they really make you think. They also are great for intonation and multi meter stuff.

    The "Bop Duets" book is a must have, IMHO. It's written by Bugs Bower and another gentleman, whom I am drawing a blank on at the minute. A great book for sightreading jazz.

    G'Day folks,
    I am posting for the 1st time on this forum and boy am I glad I heard about it. What a fantastic crowd!

    All of the duet books suggested thus far are fantastic. Let me throw out the books written By Rich Willey. I noticed that a post included his Dixie Duets but he has also written several volumes of Bop Duets. These books are written over some very standard changes. Both parts are challenging and contain some great "be bop language". In addition, they are just plain ole' fun to play. If you get the chance, I would highly recommend them. Not to mention, Rich is a great guy and an amazing player. I am sure he would be happy to discuss his books with anyone.

    My Best,
    T-
