Volume 16: Turnarounds, Cycles & II/V7s. Intermediate/Advanced. If you have been working on playing scales, chords, and harmony in general, this set is the next step towards getting your ears and fingers coordinated. This set is a continuation of Volume 3, but in much more depth. Features 23 CD tracks and most go through all 12 keys!
Volume 17: Horace Silver. Beginning/Intermediate. This set contains some of Horace’s most famous songs. Tempos are all slow to medium and musical styles & grooves represented include slow 2-beat, rock blues, lush ballad, 32 bar shuffle, bossa and swing. Many of these can be heard on Horace’s break-through albums of the 60s and 70s with Joe Henderson, J.J. Johnson, and Woody Shaw.
Volume 18: Horace Silver. Intermediate/Advanced. This set is a challenger but is worth your every effort. With this set and Volumes 17 & 86, a total of 29 Horace Silver songs are at your disposal. Ron Carter and Al Foster have made numerous recordings with Horace Silver and know his music well. The tempos are faster and provide the type of workout that any aspiring musician should welcome. The tremendous feel of the first class rhythm section lifts your playing to new levels, making even the most difficult tunes manageable. Recorded the same day as Volume 17.
Volume 19: David Liebman. Intermediate/Advanced. If you are looking for something different, try this one! This set is unusual because it contains no ii/V7s. The tunes and chord progressions are not usually found in standard jazz songs. These songs are not typical Bebop tunes; they are a step in a new direction with a fresh sound. Recorded after the rhythm section had just worked a week at the Village Vanguard in New York City, so each song on this CD is tight and intense.
Volume 20: Jimmy Raney. Intermediate. A great way to study bebop! This outstanding set includes transcribed solos written and played by Jimmy on the guitar. Used for play along purposes, the special demo track has Jimmy soloing with the rhythm section and playing all 10 solos from the book. A NEW CONCEPT in transcribed solos; you actually see and hear what is played on the demo track. Chord progressions are based on standards and Jimmy has written solos over them.
