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."

February 23, 2014 | Jazz Books "Real Deal" 30% off sale

We've mentioned the Hal Leonard "Real Book" series before. The world renowned publisher has made the best jazz standards available in legal incarnations in the same format as the popular street books, jazz font, chord and melody, and convenient music stand-ready back binding. We have several volumes (can you ever get too many fake books?) and speak very highly of them.


Jamey Aebersold Jazz has the series available on sale for 30% OFF through March 9th, so this would be a great time to stock up. They also have Play-Along audio in CD and thumb-drive, also at 30% off. This is a terrific opportunity even (if you already have a fake book) to load your practice sessions with the accompaniment of a real band. The MIDI based background tracks of Band-in-a-box or the iReal B smartphone apps are great, but it's a more satisfying aesthetic experience practicing with the real deal.
