For Christmas, someone gave me the "Play Along With the Canadian Brass" book published by Hal Leonard. It contains 17 songs along with a CD with 34 tracks. Each of the 17 songs have 2 CD tracks, 1 with the full Canadian Brass ensamble, the next with the tuba part omitted for you to play along.
I like practicing like this by trying to fully reproduce Mr. Daellenbach's style, as well as having other master musicians to play along with, even though this particular book is very easy.
Can anyone recommend more books like this, with the accompanying CD, as well as where to order from? More Canadian Brass would be great. John Williams, Pops, Showtunes, etc would be equally as good.
Thanks in advance for your recommendations.
