          My 11year old son is grade 4 trumpet and is loving playing through this collection.....all are playable and enjoyable as he is able to get most of the songs under his fingers within a couple of run throughs. A very good 'play for fun' book as well as a good teaching book as he is learning new rhythms and expressions without really noticing that he is learning because the tunes are well known and he can see how they are composed musically.

          Really good book to have. Drawback is that the melody doesn't play along with you. You only have the backing track.

          A very useful practice tool. The book gives easy basic melody notation, so you adapt it as you wish, to bring it nearer to the original recorded version or your own interpretation. Good fun and a good opportunity for training to play by ear.

          Ces arrangements sont vraiment très sympa à jouer. Je m'éclate ! Cependant, il y a un petit bémol : il n'y a pas de pistes de test et certains morceaux sont assez durs à mettre en place.

          Some of the Midi generated backings sounded really unpleasant. I also noticed that the levels were quite varying when played through a PA System meaning constant corrections. On a positive note, at least the arrangements matched the backing tracks.

          Good intermediate play along.

          If you hate James Bond this is not for you but the reality is that many of the Bond theme tunes are perfect for trumpet. The CD is only a backing CD but that said the backing music is really good and the arrangements mean that there is something for all standards. With 25 themes in the book this is definitely great value for money. I had to buy a second copy as my nephew 'borrowed' my first one. If there are two little niggles they would be that some of the tunes are quite short and the CD holder is not joined to the cover as with Guest Spot and Take The Lead titles. Other than that its really good and another title that is designed to be played loud, so you'll be shaken and stirred (groan!).
