Description

Anyone interested in learning to play jazz keyboard can pick up this book and get started right away. This well-paced, comprehensive method covers everything from basic to advanced techniques. Beginning concepts include the major scale, basic triad theory, seventh chords, pentatonic scales, and modulating chord progressions. Intermediate topics include the modes of the major scale, chord extensions, using chromatic and guide tones, chord substitution, "rhythm changes," the blues, altered dominant chords, harmony and improvisation ideas, and more. The book concludes with advanced concepts like chord voicings, modal soloing, substitution, reharmonization, modes of the minor scales, diminished and whole-tone scales, walking bass, stride, and much more. Jazz Keyboard: Complete Edition breaks with the age-old problem of dry, intimidating, and confusing jazz books to provide a step-by-step and enjoyable way to play. An MP3 CD with demonstrations of the examples in the book is included.show more
