Eleven essential jazz standards and three important workout tracks for the student ready to make the transition from playing scales, chords and exercises to playing popular jazz standards. The Melody line arrangement allows these pieces to be played on any instrument!
Excellent reference material that can be used as a resource for beginning improvisation... actual tunes instead of exercises! Great for jam sessions.
The Accompanying CD features examples, backings, slower tempos and easier changes. The CD rhythm section is: Jamey Aebersold, Piano; Tyrone Wheeler, Bass; and Steve Davis, Drums.
