This book will work for just about any musician wanting to get involved in improvisation, from the absolute novice to educators at all levels, and serious jazz players needing a chance to work out with a first-rate real band in a variety of styles. It is basically the same as Jazz Mallets: IN SESSION. The biggest difference is that it is available for all band istruments: C, Bb, Eb, Tenor Sax and Bass Clef instruments are five different books. Another difference is it has 10 of the 16 Jazz Mallets songs, and all of the text/concepts relating to those songs. Like Jazz Mallets, not only does it cover a variety of styles (Swing, Funk, Soca, Samba and Bossa), but it features tunes by famous jazz artists: Now's the Time (Charlie Parker); My Little Suede Shoes (Charlie Parker) and Afro Blue (Mongo Santamaria) as well as originals. Arthur Lipner brings many years of jazz performance and teaching to bear as he builds his course around five basic concepts: Groove; Ear Training; Chords & Basic Voicings; Listening and Connecting Chords with Solo Lines. The professionally recorded play-along CD is performed by a sextet consisting of vibes/marimba, piano, bass, drums, trumpet/flugelhorn and woodwinds. The book for tenor sax is essentially the same as the B-flat book, except that certain melodic lines are placed up an octave into a more suitable range for tenor.
