Flow Studies with a Jazz Flavor for Bass Trombone by Ryan Haines is appropriate for high school through professional trombone players.
Flow Studies with a Jazz Flavor for Bass Trombone teaches trombone players to effectively use their air flow through utilization of jazz-oriented figures, tonalities, phrasing, articulation, and styles. The etudes are based on jazz concepts and inspired by jazz standards, so players can develop their knowledge of jazz styles and learn to transpose motives through multiple key centers. These etudes are challenging and rewarding for all types of players—classical and jazz alike.
