From the Publisher

Large 248 page spiral-bound book and CD. A practical and systematic method that teaches how to practice jazz piano voicings so that they become automatic and intuitive. The method progresses step by step from 2-voice to 7-voice chord structures with fourths and upper-structure triads. Each chapter presents essential harmonic progressions written and spelled out in all keys, along with fingerings to help non-keyboardists. Also provided are songs, written out for both hands, which utilize the techniques and voicings just learned. Includes comping rhythms, bass line techniques, and practice strategies. Excellent for both classroom and individual study. Strongly endorsed by Mark Levine, Bobby Shew, Denis Diblasio, and many others. The included Play-a-long CD lets you practice the piano exercises in the book with bass and drum accompaniment; you can also practice comping along with a saxophone soloist. A demonstration piano track on one channel, played with a stylistic comping feel, gives you an idea of how the piano voicing exercises should sound.

 

Phil DeGreg has created a practical and systematic method that teaches any musician how to practice jazz piano voicings so that they become automatic and intuitive. The method progresses step by step from 2-voice shells to 7-voice chord structures with fourths and upper-structure triads.

Each chapter presents a voicing construction in essential harmonic progressions written, analyzed, and spelled out in all keys with fingerings, to accommodate different learning styles. At the end of each chapter, four song arrangements notated for both hands apply the techniques and voicings just learned.

The book also includes information about comping rhythms, bass line techniques, simple righthand melodic patterns, and detailed practice strategies.

Jazz Keyboard Harmony includes a Play-a-long CD to practice the piano exercises with bass and drum accompaniment along with a saxophone soloist. This coordinates exactly with Appendix B of the text, which is a crucial element of the whole method.

Jazz Keyboard Harmony is excellent for both classroom and individual study and used at universities all over the world. It is strongly endorsed by Mark Levine, Bobby Shew, Denis DiBlasio, and many other teachers.
