NEW REVISED EDITION. Includes new color dividers between keys and an enhanced CD.
Chord/Scale Mastery is a new and exciting approach to jazz improvisation, stemming from over 25 years of private lesson instruction.
It takes the 10 most common jazz chords, exercising the player on those chords, and presents the available scales for each chord, from the most common scales to the very unusual. It is a very comprehensive 118 page approach, and can be used as a college-level or advanced high school private or class instruction text.
Each approximately 5 minute cut on the play-along CD provides a background for the 10 most common chords in one key and the 12 cuts cover the 12 keys. To end the CD, a "120 chord tune" tests the player on all 10 chords in all 12 keys.
Professionals and college students will love the depth of the book and its wide ranging quality. It's the one book you'll want with your instrument all of the time, and is guaranteed to challenge even the most experienced player.
Construction is spiral bound on high-quality paper, built for years of professional use. Font is eminently readable and ideas are clearly presented.
"Once more, I'm going to a gig tomorrow night where they are going to improvise in God-knows-what keys and chords. Thanks to my work with your book I go ahead with considerably more confidence. I haven't seen ANYTHING like it on the market. Thorough, learning, applicable, comprehensive, and (best of all) it's a play-a-long - the only way to learn!" Andy Leoss, Ohio
