The New Real Book
is the most authoritative legal fake book for jazz standards in the industry. Now with the Play Along CD 1
you can play along with the specially recorded rhythm accompaniment.
If you own The New Real Book Volume 1 then this CD is the perfect companion. Featuring 10 complete rhythm section backing tracks for tunes from the book, there is over 40 minutes' worth of music on this CD, providing truly great value for money considering the amount of playing and practising time this will bring.
The professional rhythm sections will make you sound like you are a member of a world-class band, which will help you to enjoy practising as well as improve your playing. Not only this, but the tracks are split via stereo separation so that you can isolate either the Drums or Piano giving you a huge amount of control over your very own accompaniment - played by Mark Levine, Bob Magnusson and Vince Lateano.
Tracks included on this CD are such standards as Monk's Mood and the great Charlie Parker's Anthropology, so you'll never be stuck for a jazz classic to play along to. The styles vary making this Play Along CD 1 perfect for musicians of any taste.
