Volume 26: The Scale Syllabus. For all levels, instrumentalists & vocalists. Hear David Liebman solo over every scale listed in the Scale Syllabus. He solos on two versions of each scale: the first is slow and simple, and the second is more complex and fast. Stereo separation allows you to practice and improvise too! David is on one channel and Jamey is on the other. An excellent list of piano voicings are included.
Volume 27: John Coltrane. Intermediate/Advanced. 8 Favorite jazz classics from one of the most innovative and influential jazz artists in history, the great John Coltrane. Includes the haunting ballad Naima. Coltrane’s compositions explored many new frontiers and opened up new harmonic doors for all who followed. The crisp, tight rhythm section adds much enjoyment to this unique Play-A-Long.
Volume 28: John Coltrane. Intermediate/Advanced. 8 more classic compositions for all musicians wishing to find out what it’s all about. Includes the historical “Giant Steps.” Coltrane could also “cook” on a simple straight-ahead blues, as evidenced in this set. The rhythm section provides the perfect rhythmic feel for each tune and weaves a beautiful harmonic fabric for you to play along with.
Volume 29: Play Duets With Jimmy Raney. Intermediate/Advanced. Now includes TAB parts in addition to “standard” music notation. All duets are written in C Concert with chord progressions transposed for Bb & Eb. Stereo separation al- lows you to switch off one channel and fill in the missing part. Melodies are written in duet form, followed by Jimmy comping on one channel and soloing on the other. Drummers and Bassists this is for you! There are no other instruments on the CD. Play with the CD in stereo, then separate the channels. Horn players will want to solo while Jimmy accompanies. 10 original tunes based on standard chord progressions in a variety of feels and time signatures. Jimmy’s improvised solos are available as a supplemental book.
Volume 30: Rhythm Section Workout. Designed for ALL rhythm section players and teachers. Listen as you would any jazz recording as the melody is played in and out, solo, comp., and trade “4s”. Tremendous tool for teachers; allows isolation and careful study of each instrument’s role with definitive chapters in the booklet. Includes piano & guitar voicings, transcribed bass lines, and outstanding drum info. Includes transcribed solos by Haerle, Petersen, and Coolman.
