Sage Wisdom

"Good improvisation communicates harmonic progression melodically. Effective melodies manipulate harmonic content through the use of guide tones and preparatory gravity notes, masterfully woven in systematic tension, release, and transparent harmonic definition."

June 19, 2010 | The best things in life are (sometimes) free

We are huge fans of the Jamey Aebersold method books, especially the Play-along CD series. We've spent many hours getting friendly with the classic jazz standards, the fabulous rhythm section audio accompaniments, and have been hugely influenced by the books on "Turnarounds," "ii V7 I," "Nothin' but Blues," and many more. There are terrific treasures there, and if you haven't spent any time over the decades worth of materials at JazzBooks.com, you should.

Get a good glimpse of some of these you can also take with you, download their free sample, the Jamey Aebersold Jazz Handbook (AKA the "Red Book"), a 56 page intense treasure summary of lesson samples, playing concepts, stylistic interpretations, scales, practice tips, blues progressions, and a host of other intriguing and valuable jazz concepts. It's a pretty big file, around 3 megabytes, but we almost guarantee it will be a tease for the many more gems you can get from the JazzBooks library. Resistance will be futile.
