Published in five compatible books, Reading Jazz is supplied with an accompanying CD. The most common jazz rhythms are presented one at a time in order of increasing complexity in a series of short exercises and duets. The CD is used as an example of the proper performance techniques needed, and for jazz reading practice with a professional rhythm section.
My sons teacher recommended this book to improve my sons sight reading. So far it seems great and is certainly doing the job, if you can forgive some of the off key singing! Anonymous
