Mark Harrison - Intro to Jazz Piano
Mark Harrison Intro to Jazz Piano PDF. This comprehensive book/CD is the perfect Intro to Jazz Piano. If you want to learn how to play the enduring standards that make up the Great American Songbook, then you've come to the right place! Whether comping, playing the melody, or soloing, you'll learn the theory, the tools and the techniques used by the pros. The accompanying CD demonstrates almost all of the music examples in the book. The full band tracks feature the rhythm section on the left channel and the piano on the right channel, so that you can play along with the band!
The exercises are presented in "step by step form" so you won't jump from super easy to impossible at any point. Of course, it's an INTRO book, so remember it's aimed to give you the basics about chord voicings (and how to apply basic but effective rhythms to them) and a little bit of Lead Sheet reading so you can star playing tunes of the Real Book on your own.
