ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jazz Phrasing for Beginners is the perfect introduction to jazz for all aspiring saxophonists. The book features ten melodic pieces which are easy to play, yet convey the essence of mainstream (Swing/Bebop/Bossa) jazz vocabulary. The short, catchy pieces demonstrate how to use sequences and voice-leading to make a musical statement, while clearly outlining the chord progression, without the need for advanced technical or reading abilities.

The book includes two play-along CDs (one for alto and one for tenor) featuring a world-class rhythm section, plus Greg Fishman demonstrating each piece. In addition, there are play-along tracks with just the rhythm section, so students have the option of playing along with Greg Fishman or with just the rhythm section.

This book is the "prequel" to Greg Fishman's more advanced books, Jazz Saxophone Etudes and Jazz Saxophone Duets, and will provide valuable insights into a melodic approach to jazz improvisation. The book is also recommended for all players, beginning or advanced, who wish to improve their tone, phrasing and understanding of thematic development.
