Book 2 of a two-volume series that presents the fundamentals of jazz in a logical and accessible way, primarily through short progressive exercises. Ideal for classically-trained pianists in traditional lessons who may be a little cautious to learn jazz, as well as for players simply wishing to expand their existing “jazzabilities”! Book 2 explores concepts in greater depth and introduces the most important aspects of jazz theory in a style that's easy to grasp. Also useful for pianists interested in participating in a school jazz program. The online audio tracks are indispensable to the series, in particular the fun and practical Q&A improv exercises.
The book features 7 fully-fleshed original pieces: Jersey Jump • Beale Street Boogie • Bayou Blues • The Mississippi Magpie Rag • New Orleans Nocturne • South Side Stomp • Monkin' the Blues.
