Series: Berklee Guide Publisher: Berklee Press Format: Softcover Audio Online Author: Suzanne Davis

Learn the essentials of accompanying soloists and playing in jazz ensembles. Comping is the practice of using chords to accompany a melody. Whether supporting a soloist, playing in an ensemble, or performing solo, this book will help you to use chords effectively and appropriately to create a rich jazz feel and enhance the sound of your whole ensemble. It begins with triads and voice leading, and progresses through altered seventh-chord spread voicings for two hands, covering many different techniques for using harmony and rhythm. The accompanying audio recordings let you practice with a small jazz combo. Suitable for all major jazz styles.
