Jacques Rizzo: Reading Jazz - Tenor Saxophone

Books and CDs | Tenor Saxophone

Publisher: Alfred Publishing
Author: Jacques Rizzo
Series: Reading Jazz
Format: Books | Instrumental Tutor
Throughout the country, most music educators teach jazz by rote, because in jazz, 'what you see' isn't 'what you get.' Students who wish to study this musical form generally have had traditional, classical-oriented training, and most have difficulty reading jazz music. This self-study text is the answer to this problem.

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 the 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.

These Books can be used independent of the teacher, so this play-along, self-study approach is the logical solution to one of the biggest problems in jazz - how to interpret the written page.

        It is a brilliant resource for anyone beginning to learn jazz and swing especially if like me you struggle with off beats.

        Recommended by my teacher as the best book ever for learning jazz rhythms. Each piece has introductory exercises on one note to make sure you have the rhythm correct before tackling the piece. Your version can be checked against the CD to see that you are right (or not!). You can then play the piece against the CD. The book covers all the main jazz rhythms. The music is good to play, quite a challenge to get completely right, but I'm sure my teacher is right. Excellent.
