Summary Artful vocal jazz improvisation requires knowing the changes, and all musicians need to understand what is happening on the musical landscape. This book will help you hear, understand and apply jazz theory so that you can solo as a complete musician. Each lesson offers a core musical concept related to harmony, melody and rhythm, integrating skills such as conducting and analysis, and reinforcing them with practical exercises. The accompanying audio tracks demonstrate techniques and let you practice improvising with piano accompaniment-- [Publisher description].
