Celebrated jazz player Arthur Lipner has devised a set of books that will be terrific for introducing players with a desire to improvise in a group to the basic musical requirements of the jazz arts. Covering a wide range of concepts, Lipner's books touch on ear training, chords and basic voicings, the groove and connecting chords with solo lines. The books contain: lead sheets to ten tunes, including two by Charlie Parker and one each by Mongo Santamaria and Ze Luis Olivera; a great play-along CD with a really smokin' band; graduated difficulty of charts and solos beginning with two tunes using one chord each; transciptions of nine Lipner solos for playing along with; discussion of the elements, chord details and solo ideas for each tune; a hip mix of styles including soca, funk, bossa, samba and swing.
