Subtitled: An Intermediate Guide to Jazz Concepts, Improvisation, Technique & Theory
Jazz pianist Sarah Jane Cion teaches the foundational concepts behind the wonderful world of jazz music. Modern Jazz Piano covers what every aspiring jazz pianist needs to know: jazz theory, harmony, rhythm, improvisation and more. The accompanying CD provides 15 full-band tracks to go along with the transcriptions inside the book.
“As a pianist, I've gained tons of knowledge from this book. As a publisher, I wish I had it in our catalog of published books. As a jazz fan, I can only say that Sarah Jane's CDs are on my most-listened-to shelf. If she is ever playing in your area, drop everything and go!”
– Ed Shanaphy, Editor, Piano Today Magazine
“Sarah Jane Cion has written a book which is clear, concise, easy to understand, practical and – most of all – fun to use.”
