1.0 out of 5 stars rework, November 14, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Trumpet Technique (Kindle Edition)
Frank Campos starts this book with common sense ideas. Efficiency is so important - lips, breath and tongue. However, when he gets to the lip section, he is not imparting common techniques. He encourages the reader to push the mouthpiece up. I can only guess that he has a 2/3 upper lip placement for the way he plays. Everyone plays different - is he going to tell Wynton Marsalis to go from his position (1/3 upper lip) to Campos's physical style??? He talks about the smile muscles and their usefulness in a trumpet embouchure - huh - that is information discarded 30 years ago. Unless a player with his same physical makeup is using these techniques, it is not a match for the majority of trumpet players.

The book has good ideas interspersed throughout, however with such poor prime physical recommendations about the embouchure I rate this book a D-.

1.0 out of 5 stars Is there a doctor in the house?, December 22, 2011
I think it's amazing that some so called mental health professionals give out advice to serve their own poor interests, but not those of half of their clients/readers. I believe Dr. Pertot falls into this category. Life can be lonely and a woman with low libido combined with poor sexual attitudes makes it more so.

1.0 out of 5 stars Weak, November 26, 2011
This review is from: Virtuoso Trumpet (Audio CD)
Schlueter is an average performer. His rhythms are weak if not wrong, so his style is correspondingly not strong. His sound is very mellow for a top notch classical trumpeter. Thumbs down.

1.0 out of 5 stars Buyer Beware, May 25, 2011
I'm astounded that this is the sixth edition of anything that comes with a multitude of mistakes and wrong information. This should come with a disclaimer of some sort or "a buyer beware" notice. Last week I bought the Volume I (Bb version) to replace a 35 year old C copy. Right off the bat I started playing a standard "Joy Spring" by Lee Morgan, oops I mean Clifford Brown (who will know the difference) and starting at the last beat of the fourth line there was a triplet instead of the correct sixteenth notes and continuing on line 5, bars 2 and 4 had incorrect rhythms and notes. Miles Davis's "Solar" has a rest instead of the mostly harmonic minor run in the last measure. Charlie Parker and Bennie Harris's "Ornithology" is missing several bars of triplets replaced with rests or other wrong notation. I'm just getting into this volume, but it is totally disturbing and frustrating that Hal Leonard has done such a poor and shoddy job of compiling this. It is a total waste of my time, efforts and money to revise something that should be in far better shape than it is. Hal Leonard puts out a statement on the Preface ; "The book is professionally copied and meticulously checked for accuracy in melody, harmony and rhythms." Perhaps the harmony is correct (no copyright there), but the melody and rhythms are incorrect on standards and as I've said, just started to get involved with this volume.
