I'm wondering if anyone could suggest any books of jazz scale or pattern exercizes that I could use for practice. Not necessarily for jazz purposes-but just for technique and dexterity.

Basically I find Arban, Charlier, Clarke kind of boring sometimes and would like to have daily practice material for technique and tonguing that is harmonically and melodically more interesting to me.

Kind of a shot in the dark but I would appreciate any suggestions.

Rich Willey's books are excellent.

I learned all my improv fundamentals with "Patterns for Jazz" by Coker.

This is a good brief reference book about scales, intervals, chords, and most other aspects of playing. It isn't a 'theory' book or 'practice routines' - but it is the best short 'single package' of material I've found.

I have a free Jazz-focused practice routine I posted back in December. It even has a play-along on YouTube so you can rest as long as you play:

Here are a few books that come to mind:

Eric Bolvin's "Modern Jazz Trumpet Method" has a variety of scale patterns and arpeggios. You might also consider his "Be-Bop Range Book" and "The Clarke Variations."

Craig Fraedrich's "A Daily Dose of Scales for Improvisation" has lots of useful material.

Pat Harbison's "Technical Studies for the Modern Trumpet" includes Arban and Clarke exercises modified for jazz and commercial players.

Chris Kase's "21st Century Technique" is full of Clarke exercises modified to meet "contemporary musical requirements." Kase's"Arpeggiare" has some really good chordal exercises.

John McNeil's "Art of Jazz Trumpet" has a series of practice patterns along the lines of Clarke technical studies.

So much great material out there!

Good luck!

Great suggestions on this thread. I would like to add that as much as books are excellent in building a foundation for jazz, most of one's learning should come from listening to the masters-Clifford, Miles, Freddie, Lee Morgan, Kenny Dorham, Woody Shaw, Blue Mitchell etc. Scales and theory are important, but without countless hours of listening to the innovators that created the music, you won't have concept, style and melodic vocabulary-without that you'll only be playing scales.

Bolvin's jazz stuff (https://bolvinmusic.com/product/jazz-trumpet-bundle/) is great (and cheap, as it's print-it-yourself); I use it to keep in shape on my flugelhorn after I get through the day's Claude Gordon routines. It's useful for jazz, providing practical licks and scale patterns in all keys, and in different modes. And if you follow his articulation patterns it gets you in the "jazz mindset." I actually bought his Complete Trumpet Method but I haven't got to any of the "legit" stuff yet. I figured I'd work through it when I got to the end of Gordon, but I'm starting to feel like that might be never .
