Our first set of jazz and popular standards jazz players have always enjoyed recording and improvising on. A stellar representation of American popular music that will offer years of enjoyment for all musicians. Lyrics included.
These books can be used on two levels.You can play the written melody along with the recorded rhythm section,or you can try to play jazz using the chord symbols.You have to know what you are doing,however,as these are not theory or instruction books.The rhythm section are a bit modern for a dixielander like me and indulge themselves in some unusual variations here and there,but then if it was easy you probably wouldn't learn anything!I use the books with my teacher and I each taking a chorus and we have great fun and hopefully something wears off on me.The books and Cd's are well produced and the service from Musicroom was first class.
