Jazz Theory and Practice - Book by Richard Lawn & Jeffrey Hellmer. Jazz Theory and Practice is the most modern introduction to jazz theory ever published. Rich with examples from the repertoire, it gives performers, arrangers and composers an in-depth and practical knowledge of the theoretical foundations of jazz. A CD-ROM version is also available (MAC version only), providing supplemental exercises for ear-training and sight-reading practice, as well as tutorials that correspond to topics and examples in the text.
Please note - the CD-ROM uses MAC OS9, which is longer compatible with current Mac computers, but the examples are still playable as midi files. Quicktime should play back any of the examples in the book.
