Why you should consider this and other Aebersold piano voicing transcription books: Ever listen to a great jazz pianist and wonder "what's he doing there?" Now you'll know! Here, as never before, is an opportunity to see real jazz piano voicings and comping over real songs in real live musical settings. These historic books contain note-for-note transcriptions---exactly as recorded---of the exciting piano accompaniment from the world famous Aebersold play-along series. Not just for pianists, there are many ways for all musicians to use these wonderful musical tools.
Pianists: First, listen closely to the pianist on the respective play-along recording (sold separately). Next, reading from the book, play along with him, imitating his style. Finally, turn him off (using the special stereo separation on all of our CDs) and play along by yourself with the bass and drums. With the techniques learned, you'll soon be improvising your own accompaniment!
