Best-selling Advance author (Jazz Conception Series) and critically-acclaimed saxophonist (2017 Downbeat Critic’s Poll) Jim Snidero introduces The Essence Of The Blues, an exciting new way of learning the blues. This method addresses moderately advanced players, but is both fun and instructive for virtually any level of ability.

Each edition contains 10 solo etudes inspired by historic artists, providing authentic jazz and blues language, all transposed for common jazz wind instruments. The recordings on the professionally produced play along CD showcase top-notch soloists and one of New York’s best swinging rhythm section:

Jim Snidero (alto saxophone), Eric Alexander (tenor saxophone), Jeremy Pelt (trumpet), Steve Davis (trombone), Jamie Baum (flute), Ken Peplowski (clarinet), Mike LeDonne (piano & B3 organ), Peter Washington (bass), and Joe Farnsworth (drums). The Essence of the Blues features several sections that are useful for individual or group study:

• Exact articulation and phrasing markings played by the soloist
• Analysis of each etude and style insight of historic artist
• Basic blues theory including form, chord function and progressions
• Style and listening suggestions of historic recordings
• Over 70 ideas extracted for improvisation
