Description
Scotty Barnhart discusses his book, "The World of Jazz Trumpet." He begins by explaining that his book combines the history of jazz trumpeting and the influences of African music on jazz. He discusses how the earliest jazz songs were comprised of spiritual hymns, waltzes, ragtime, and classical music. He describes the influence of blues in the south, and plays several examples of early jazz. He talks about how the book includes sheet music and song samples for trumpeters. He discusses the styles of several different musicians like Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington. He ends the interview by talking about the history of the trumpet itself, and how variations of the instrument have been around for thousands of years.
