This is a great instructional tool to use with your jazz band! It's a collection of 23 short riffs made up of essential rhythmic figures that are the basis of all jazz charts. Written in swing, rock and Latin styles, you can put this in front of your band and really drive home how the different figures should sound. Some of the phrases are designed for improvising over, and many can be linked together to provide longer exercises. Essential!
