ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"THIS IS REALLY A GREAT BOOK!!!! A powerful sight reading, ear training, swinging, improvising jazz tool. Perfect for the student of jazz. Wish I had it when I was growing up. Glad I have it now."

--Michael Brecker

"This is one of the most concise and easy to digest collection of solos over standard tune chord changes that I have seen. All the elements of good voice leading, passing notes and common scale usage are here. Very enjoyable!!"

--Dave Liebman

"I wish I had material like this when I was coming up. These etudes are little masterpieces. There is such a wealth of material to learn from here. Great line construction and great conceptual ideas. Having the rhythm section continue after the etude is a great idea! I will be using these with virtually all my students from now on. Greg Fishman has done a terrific job of putting this book together, and the play-along rhythm section is first class!"

--Mark Colby, Depaul University, Elmhurst College

-----------

Book includes 12 Etudes and 2 CDs--an Alto Sax and Tenor Sax version, with each etude played by Greg Fishman, plus extra rhythm section tracks for extended blowing. Also includes: theory and analysis, detailed practice guide for intermediate, advanced and pro-level players.
47 pages, 8.5 x 11 format. ISBN 0-9766153-0-4

------------

This book of etudes was created to fill a gap in the musical resources available to all aspiring jazz musicians. Its purpose is to demonstrate the concepts of soloing to those students who know their chords and scales, but want to improve the quality of their own improvised solos.

I have written twelve etudes that will be enjoyable to play, yet will present some technical challenges. However, the technical benefits are secondary to the primary purpose of the etudes--to play through the chord changes in a musical manner while clearly expressing the song's harmonic structure.

The etudes are based on familiar chord progressions, including the blues, rhythm changes, and a variety of common "standard" 32-bar songs.
