Play-along book and 2-CD set for all instrumentalists.
The Jamey Aebersold Learn to Improvise Jazz CDs contain 30 extended backing tracks. Great primer for learning basic jazz improvisation skills in major and minor keys. Advanced players will want to work on "double-timing," playing "outside" and "side-slipping" in all keys at comfortable tempos. Special tracks have Jamey Aebersold playing various exercises and soloing on his saxophone with actual cuts from Volume 24 so you can hear and see how to use this set. All exercises and sax solos on the demo tracks are transcribed and written out in the book. Pick a different key each day of the week for practice. For all instrumentalists and vocalists.
Rhythm section: Jamey Aebersold piano; John Goldsby bass; Charlie Craig drums.
