Your chance to play ballads with an all-star jazz band! Bob Wilber, a student of Sidney Bechet one of the premier clarinet and soprano saxophone players in the world, created these arrangements specifically for this volume. The piano solos were written by master pianist Jim Odrich. You'll thrill to playing these ten ballads with a live six piece jazz band -- no midi accompaniments here. Includes a compact disc with a complete performance of each piece and a second stereo version minus the soloist, and a newly engraved music book containing the solo part for each piece, printed on high-quality acid-free ivory paper.

The Bob Wilber All-Star Band:
Bob Wilber, clarinet & tenor sax; 'Marky' Markowitz, trumpet; Lou McGarity, trombone; Hank Jones, piano; George Duvivier, bass; Elvin Jones, drums; Jim Odrich, piano soloist

"Music Minus One takes the educational approach to jazz playing much like their approach to classical music; surround yourself with upper echelon musicians, and you can start sounding like them. The arrangements... are swinging, clever and intricate enough that you will definitely develop your ear while playing with these guys. The format of hearing your own part, and then playing the tune with your chance to sit in gives you something to aspire to sound and concept-wise. [...] I enjoyed the feeling of playing with these guys. Ah, dreams that come true!"
