The modern trumpet performer will be called upon to perform many different styles during their career. One of the ways a classical trumpet student can learn to play different styles is through performing in as many ensembles as their school offers and playing solos written in the vein of third stream music. One of these solos is Alfred Reed's Ode for Trumpet. This work allows the performer to experiment with jazz sounds and style without the worry of improvisation. To successfully perform this work one must have a proper sound concept, style, and the ability to tastefully embellish the melody.
The methodologies that will be used in this project report are performance practice, theoretical and analytical, and narratology. The performance practice methodology will be used to describe how to perform a work in the third stream of music. The theoretical and analytical methodology will be used to show why certain embellishments work harmonically and why the piece is considered third stream music. Finally, the short biographies of Alfred Reed and Don Jacoby will fall under the narratology methodology.
The purpose of this project report is to investigate how to properly and successfully perform trumpet works in the third stream genre and how they relate to the needs of the everyday professional trumpet player. It will cover sound concepts, style, and embellishments that will help guide a performer to their own voice in this music. The ability to change tonal colors, swing, and use extended techniques will be required of the player in various musical settings from playing in pops orchestras to Broadway style musicals to playing in a big band. These topics are important for every trumpet player, specifically classical trumpeters, to learn because they will be required to be knowledgeable and have mastered these skills to have success as a professional trumpeter.
