Our Description

How The Book and CD Work

'Improvising without the support of an accompaniment, ie a rhythm section (piano, bass and drums), can be an unrewarding and frustrating experience. It's rather like trying to find a location without the aid of a map. The live rhythm section on the CD provides a good stylistic and harmonic environment in which to travel. To ensure a clean start, each track has a solid four beat lead-in.

Many players 'freeze' when they are asked to perform without conventional music notation to read from. However this CD will stimulate the performer into 'loosening up' and 'having a go'. The book does contain written-out phrases, but the player is encouraged to memorise these and incorporate them into their improvisation'. James Rae
