Jamey Aebersold Jazz Ensemble Collection Volume 1
- Heritage Music Press
This great collection is as nice to listen to as it is great for teaching jazz! Renowned jazz writer Peter Blair has taken eight of the famous Jamey Aebersold play-along tunes and written complete jazz ensemble charts that allow your budding improvisors to plug their newly-honed skills into a real-life setting! The exact form and structure are retained from the original play-along setting, so students can use Jamey's books and tracks to practice their solos. A variety of styles are offered, including modal blues, Latin grooves, 3/4 minor blues and more. The rhythm section parts are fully notated to ensure a successful performance. Includes Some Minor Changes from Jamey's Volume #1-Learning To Play Jazz, as well as A Little Minor Blues; Mr. Super Hip; Horizontal and Modal Blues from Volume #2-Nothin' But Blues; and Lame Duck; Bertha's Boss and Achin' And Breakin' from Volume #88-Millennium Blues. What a great way to reinforce important improv skills!
