Book & 2 CDs
Intermediate / Advanced
Now with two CDs---one features slower tempos! This set is a challenger but is worth your every effort. With this set and Volumes 17 and 86, a total of 29 Horace Silver songs are at your disposal. Ron Carter and Al Foster have made numerous recordings with Horace Silver and know his music well. The tempos on the first (the original) CD are faster and provide the type of workout that any aspiring musician should welcome. The tremendous feel of the first class rhythm section lifts your playing to new levels, making even the most difficult tunes manageable. The second (new) CD includes all of the tracks on the first CD at slower practice tempos---including slow and medium versions of "Nica's Dream" and "Room 608," allowing you to build up to the faster tempos. Recorded the same day as Volume 17. Rhythm Section: Kenny Barron (p); Ron Carter (b); Ben Riley (d). Titles: Strollin' * Ecaroh * Mayreh * Room 608 * Barbara * Nica's Dream * Quicksilver * Summer in Central Park.
