This mammoth collection of jazz method books is appropriate for musicians of all levels – whether you’re a seasoned jazzer or just starting out on your journey.
D’Aveni’s Jazz Basics takes you through all key centres, giving you not only an arsenal of patterns to choose from but also a fundamental understanding of how changes fit together and how to improvise over them. Al Grey and Erik Veldkamp give you specific instructions on how to use mutes properly, ensuring that you wield your plunger, cup, and straight mutes with newfound confidence.
Even if your sights aren’t set on a career as a big band soloist or a small ensemble leader, the ability to lay down a killin’ solo over a set of changes is a valuable skill that everyone should possess.
