Go beyond the typical play-along with Alfred’s Jazz Play-Along Series, an innovative approach to teaching improvisation. Each volume contains parts for C, B-flat, E-flat, and bass clef instruments and includes a sample written-out jazz solo for you to listen to, study, and play.

The included CD offers a demo track, play-along track, and split track functionality, featuring a professional rhythm section and horn player to learn the melodies, styles, and sample solos. In addition, the play-along tracks allow a soloist or group to learn and perform with the rhythm section only. Split tracks offer piano, guitar, and bass players the opportunity to perform with the track by dialing in/out left or right stereo channels.

Each tune has specific improvisation tips and suggestions and the sample solo is an invaluable asset that makes learning how to improvise easier. Play-alongs have never been more complete, so collect the entire series!

Volume 1 features six favorites from jazz legend Billy Strayhorn. The book contains such titles as "Take the ‘A’ Train," "Isfahan," "Freddy Freeloader," "Caravan," "Prelude to a Kiss," "Johnny Come Lately," "UMMG (Upper Manhattan Medical Group)," and more!
