    Hi jon,
    Hope this helps
    What she did was to remove the solos and you play the solos. Its very cool and worth every penny. One of my favorites is Pretty Road. I will often play the reed part (I think its the reed part) which is written under the Bb trumpet part until the solo. At the solo Maria takes out Jensen's solo and you play it. Also, Sky Blue is a lot of fun too.

    Took me less than 30 seconds per song, but I've got a pretty fast connection.

    Hmmm, I can't seem to find any play-along, only the cd. And I did try to google it too! I'm very interested in that book/play-along :-) Any link directly to the book?

    I've written a couple of new Basie style play-alongs with written out solo chorusses. I think I will record them tomorrow and then they will be downloadable soon after in my webshop.

    Can anyone tell me how this works? Their website, despite having about a billion words, isn't real clear on how it works. Do I have to buy a membership to get the priviledge of buying music? I don't see any prices. And I don't have a teacher so that part doesn't make sense to me.

    You rent it and then have access to tons of play along and some sheet music. Mostly you use your own music.

    I haven't used it much lately. It used to be 10.00 per month or 100.00 per year. I think they lowered the price. There was also a deal if you were in ITG. I think 25.00 per year.

    Before you play along PakWaan, you've got a tough choice to make! Which wonderful horn this time??

    I second the recommendation for trumpets Eleven and all other material by Michael Davis at Hip Bone Music: Hip-Bone Music

    His 20 Minute Warmup is truly excellent as well, and you get to warm up with Phil Smith to boot :) talk about a sound concept. in fact, I would hazard a guess that this warmup probabl6y exceeds most player's practice regiment here :)
