Perfect for moody, brooding noir style ‘cool’ jazz. A sub-genre that has yet to be properly explored in the sample world, until now.

WALKTHROUGH


THE CONCEPT

This library taps into an as of yet explored sub-genre within Jazz. The 'cool jazz' style. A style made most famous by people like Miles Davis & Chet Baker. With slow brooding melodies, over soft and Smokey accompaniment. With the 'muted' trumpet being so synonymous with the style, this instrument really leads the way within this collection. Attempting to embody that classic ultra-specific sound of the style, this library does what no other can.
