This book is designed for jazz pianists seeking to broaden their knowledge of jazz harmony and to cultivate practical skills for mastering the harmonic progressions found in standard tunes and jazz instrumentals. Part 2: Voice Leading, Scales and Chord Progressions approaches jazz harmony from a linear rather than a vertical perspective. Instead of treating harmony simply as successions of individual chords, harmony chords are treated as layered lines that interact with one another in a complementary fashion following the rules of voice leading and counterpoint. The chapters are: The Jazz Rule of the Octave, Harmonic Toolbox, Harmonic Grids, The Blues, and concludes with Jazz Progressions You Should Know. Each chapter includes an exercise section which contains carefully designed harmonic drills that utilize and complement the content of each chapter in different and creative ways.
