Why you should consider this and other Aebersold piano voicing transcription books: Ever listen to a great
jazz pianist and wonder "what's he doing there?" Now you'll know! Here, as never before, is an opportunity
to see REAL jazz piano voicings and comping over REAL songs in REAL live musical settings. These historic
books contain NOTE-FOR-NOTE transcriptions, exactly as recorded, of the exciting piano accompaniment from
the World Famous Aebersold Play-A-Long series. Not just for pianists, there are many ways for ALL MUSICIANS
to use these wonderful musical tools:
Pianists: First, listen closely to the pianist on the respective Play-A-Long recording (sold separately).
Next, reading from the book, play along with him, imitating his style. Finally, TURN HIM OFF (using the
special stereo separation on all of our CDs) and play along by yourself with the bass and drums. With the
techniques learned, you'll soon be improvising your own accompaniment!
Non-Pianists: Horn players, arrangers and vocalists can use these books like dictionaries to look up favorite
voicings they've heard on a particular Play-A-Long track. Written clearly for two hands, even the most novice
pianist can play many sections of these books.
Teachers/Educators: Give your combo piano students instant jazz voicings and harmonies over a variety of
Standards and styles. As personal tools, they will enhance your own understanding of voicings and voice
movement and provide you with better skills for accompanying your students.
