Cutting the Changes cuts the chord symbols out of soloing! Improvise over standard tunes using ONLY MAJOR SCALES!
There's no longer any reason to be afraid of improvising over the music of Gershwin, Porter, Lerner and Loewe, Mercer, Mandel, and others! For beginning to advanced improvisors, this method is ideal for classroom, private, or self-instruction, as well as music education and jazz pedagogy classes.
Each Cutting the Changes book includes:
- A Play-Along CD with superb rhythm section accompaniment
- A CD-ROM packed with theory instruction, listening examples, a discography, and printable accompaniment scores and parts for optional live rhythm section.
Songs include: I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face · The Days of Wine and Roses · I Can't Get Started · In the Still of the Night · As Time Goes By · The Best Is Yet to Come · Since I Fell for You · Tea for Two · Lil' Darlin' · It Ain't Necessarily So · The Shadow of Your Smile · You Go to My Head · How High the Moon
