A study guide aimed at helping bassists of all levels expand their chops to aid musical expression.
The Jimmy Haslip: Modern Improvisation for Bass book by Alfred is an inspirational resource for jazz and fusion musicians that helps expand the possibilities of creative expression. Using the Yellowjackets tune "Run for Your Life," Jimmy walks through a study of Rhythm Changes and then branches out into the types of alterations and possibilities that have kept his playing fresh for over 47 years.
Even the most seasoned jazz musician will find new ways of creating distinctive melodies, patterns, bass lines and harmonies, allowing for the truest personal expression as you learn to speak through your instrument with ease.
