taken from the introduction:

'Approaching The Standards, Volumes 1,2 and 3, are part of the Jazz Improvisation Series. From the jazz novice to budding professionals, this play-along series is designed to help individuals build a melodic, harmonic and rhythmic jazz vocabulary. Eight classic jazz tunes are featured on each play-along CD for students to listen, analyze, transcribe and commit to memory. Each tune gives the player the opportunity to hear the jazz language performed by professional musicians as if they are performing at a real gig.' Dr. Willie L. Hill Jr
