Voicing/Instrument JAZZ KEYBOARD METHOD W/CD
Publisher BERKLEE PRESS
A step-by-step approach to solo jazz improvisation for piano. It begins with a review of chord symbol interpretation, walks through bass line development, and ends with how to play several melodic lines simultaneously in stimulating musical conversation. Notated transcriptions of sample improvisations illustrate each lesson's technique, and the accompanying CD lets you hear a master improviser put these ideas to work.
