Essential Elements Jazz Play-Along: Jazz StandardsIncludes CD
From the Publisher
At last, a jazz play-along book for developing players! In addition to being a perfect introduction to some of the best-known jazz standards, this book includes hints for improvising on each tune, a guide to jazz articulations, plus a scale/chord correlation chart. Biographical sketches of key jazz figures are also included. And, if that wasn't enough, each tune comes with its own sample solo for reference or performance. The professionally recorded audio CD also includes tempo adjustment software for use in your computer (CD-ROM).
