Bassoon Player. Recording Artist. Composer. Groundbreaker.
Doorknocker: with Raze The Maze (video)
Hello! How are you all? Sorry it's been awhile!
Please visit my new Bandcamp page where you can buy fresh downloads of some of my new YouTube hits such as the single of my collaboration with Raze the Maze-Doorknocker!
Here's the link to my new book at https://www.forrestsmusic.com/X-1252-PDF.
It's called JAZZ TRAINING FOR BASSOONISTS. It contains my personal jazz transcriptions of solos over standard jazz forms such as rhythm changes, blues, bebop, modal Blue Note jazz. It's the next level of education for bassoon players-you'll really enjoy it!
HERE is the LINK for my book TECHNIQUE STUDIES FOR JAZZ IMPROVISATION in PDF form.
I'm so glad to have found a way to make this book available in this manner. It has sold over 1000 copies since I wrote it ins 2003.
Finally-I'm upgrading this for the new year in 2023!
