Nine Gordon Goodwin Big Phat Band classics in a jazz play-along! The Alfred Jazz Play-Along series for Rhythm Section goes beyond the other play-alongs. The rhythm section book has written-out parts for piano, bass, and drumset to show comping suggestions. In addition, each tune includes the melody and a sample jazz solo written out for you to listen to, play, and practice. The included mp3 CD has a demo track and a play-along track for for piano, bass, and drums.

The demo track, featuring Gordon Goodwin and players from the Big Phat Band, is a learning tool for the melody, piano comping, bass lines, drum parts, and improvisation. The play-along track allows each player to practice with the rhythm section as individuals with their part removed from the mix. The mp3 CD also features tempo changing software allowing you to slow down or speed up the tempo. The written comping examples along with the written sample solos are all invaluable assets that make learning how to improvise easier. Nine great Gordon Goodwin compositions = great jazz!
