The Jazz Sessions Series is a tremendous collection of Jazz standards classics and original material by contemporary composers Alexander Lâ€™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 individualâ€™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 improvisationalskills 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. Reflects a variety of Jazz styles including swing Latin gospel and blues. Backing Tracks give opportunity for confident and atmospheric performance. Carefully tailored for intermediate musicians.
