Intermediate Jazz Trumpet Duets PDF

Intermediate Duets for Tumpet is ideal for players with previous experience in the Jazz/Blues genre as it contains musical language (blues notes, jazz rhythms) direct from the great Jazz tradition.

It is ideal for teachers and students as the 2 parts are for players of slightly different abilities. (the lower part is slightly more challenging)

The tunes are developed just like an improvisor would 'Jazz up a tune' using blue notes, rhythmic variation and dynamics to add colour.

The 9 original pieces full of Jazz language provide interesting material for home practice sessions, classes or performance situations.

  • Grades 3-5
  • Intermediate Level
  • Jazz language and
  • Chromaticism used
  • Lower Parts more
  • Rhythmically independant
  • Wider range
  • Intro + coda added


"In my experience, it's been so difficult to find interesting jazz duets. Finally they exist! Nick Homes nails it harmonically and melodically. They're both challenging AND fun.” James Suggs 

1. Bourbon Street Blues a lively blues in F, with classic blues intro and ending (1.15)

2. Hobo subtle variations in the theme challenge the student, supported by an elaborate lower part with plenty of ‘blue’ passing notes (1.10)

3. Ramblin’ Blues based blues in D, rolling jazz lower part with intro and coda (1.15)

4. Delta Blues a touch of Gershwin here.-work out which classic it references (1.12)

5. Fats a study in slowness (much needed today!), with time to focus on the beginnings and endings of notes, dynamics and vibrato

6. Memphis the use of the 6th note in the melody gives this piece a soulful feeling. The second time round the head the lead player can enjoy playing the melody in the higher register

7. Jive Blues features chromatic passing notes and embellishments with a lick or two of Louis Armstrong mixed in

8. Barrel House Blues quirky to and fro of parts interspersed with choice blues licks in this outing in D

I bought these primarily to entertain myself during Covid teaching. I’m in a room by myself all day. So when I have time I’m recording myself playing the second parts so I can play duets with myself. Love the tunes

Jazz duets

Quite melodious and good harmonies. F#3, the lowest (sensible) note on a trumpet is best avoided
