The Jazz Sessions Series is a tremendous collection of Jazz standards, classics and original material by contemporary composers Alexander L#Estrange and Tom Pilling.
Each book is dedicated to a particular instrument but they are all able to work together for ensembles and Jazz bands, providing an exciting and enjoyable repertoire. A professionally recorded CD accompanies each book and contains play-along backing tracks as a substitute for real life musicians. This allows for practice at an individual#s preferred pace and enables students to get an authentic feel of the style.
One of the main purposes of Jazz Sessions is help encourage and develop improvisational skills with a full written solo on one page and an alternative, extended version for improvising. A great introduction to experimentation and ideal preparation for ABRSM exams.
