Jazz Articulation with Charlie Porter

Charlie Porter has some great instructional videos on his YouTube channel. Here’s a couple on jazz articulations. Check ’em out. Here’s the Charlie Parker tune Now’s the Time on Amazon (you have to hear it to play it!), and here’s the Abersold book with the playalong or just buy the mp3 if you already have the sheet music from a fake book. It’s best to play this with other people, but using playalongs is an easy way to hit the shed and play with others.

These are great videos for learning jazz trumpet articulation. If you need more help with tonguing, check out Sound the Trumpet. There’s a whole chapter on tongue use, including double and triple-tonguing.
