Modern Jazz Voicings

Arranging for Small and Medium Ensembles

Series: Berklee Guide Publisher: Berklee Press Format: Softcover Audio Online Authors: Ted Pease, Ken Pullig

The definitive text used for the time-honored Chord Scales course at Berklee College of Music, this book concentrates on scoring for every possible ensemble combination and teaches performers and arrangers how to add color, character and sophistication to chord voicings. Topics covered include: selecting appropriate harmonic tensions, understanding jazz harmony, overcoming harmonic ambiguity, experimenting with unusual combinations and non-traditional alignments, and many more. The accompanying online audio includes performance examples of several different arranging techniques. The audio tracks feature PLAYBACK+, a multi-functional audio player that allows you to slow down audio without changing pitch, set loop points, change keys, and pan left or right.

“A no-nonsense, meat and potatoes source of basic and not-so-basic information about everything relating to jazz writing – covers several courses worth of information.”

– Kenny Werner

Pianist, Composer and Author of Effortless Mastery
