Featuring the second volume of Standards for Trumpet! This album is called Pure Imagination for several reasons, the most obvious being it's the title of a wonderful song from the classic film Willie Wonka and The Chocolate Factory and is included in this volume. As in Vol. 1 (MMO6841), these albums are dual-purpose. They can be listened to as renditions of some of the finest songs in what has been called The Great American Song Book; and in the traditional "minus one" format, as a practice and education tool.
This Music Minus One Edition includes a high-quality, newly transcribed note-for-note trumpet solo part, printed on easy-to-read, acid-free ivory paper. The accompanying CD contains the complete performance of each piece, followed by a second version minus the soloist. May be used by all Bb Instruments.
