Jazz Play-Along Volume 1 - Duke Ellington
Jazz Play-Along Volume 1 Duke Ellington PDF. Great practice tool for everybody who loves jazz. Two versions of each tune gives you an opportunity to hear unfamiliar tunes first, or just comp to the soloist. Hereafter you are on your own on the next version. And the band swings great.
Since its intended for performance and not only for practice the quality of the rhythm section is very satisfying (specially when you cant practice with a real group). Volume 1 has must to know tunes for every Jazz musician. Duke is a very played and studied musician, one can learn a lot from his music, from cadences to rhythm changes. Some play along from Ellington is vital, and this is not a bad one to start with.
Be ready to get used to different chord notation if you are used to the Aebersold series though! (For eb, Bb, C and bass instruments too.)
The Jazz Play-Along Series is the ultimate learning tool for all jazz musicians. With musician friendly lead sheets, melody cues and other split track choices on the included CD, this first of its kind package makes learning to play jazz easier than before. Volume 1 in the series focuses on ten classics by one of the most respected and influential musicians of the last century, Duke Ellington.
