Here's a great resource for all musicians wishing to learn fantastic bass lines. While reading from the book, play along with the bassist on the recording from A New Approach to Jazz Improvisation Volume 70: Killer Joe (sold separately - J.W. Pepper number 5493689) until you've mastered his "feel" and nuances. Then, using the special stereo separation on all "New Approach" recordings, switch the bassist off and play along with just the piano and drums! This book is a great study in professional bass line construction, and is a natural companion to the Aebersold play-alongs. Combo and jazz ensemble instructors can use this book to give their bass students instant, professional bass lines. Includes transcribed bass lines to the chord changes of: Killer Joe; Blue Moon; Sweet Georgia Brown; Sugar; Misty; Stop-Time Blues; The Girl from Ipanema; Bb New Orleans Blues; Mr. PC; You Stepped Out of a Dream; Ladybird; Afternoon in Paris and 3/4 Blues.
