Jay Clayton's Jazz Vocal Practice Series, Volume 2
By Jay Clayton
Vamps & Blues: Practice Improvising!
Vamps are one or more chords repeated over and over again. Since the harmony doesn't change much, you have time to hear ideas and develop a solo as well as find new ways to articulate and build your personal vocabulary. There are eight piano vamps on this practice CD. Each one has a different feel and character and chord progression.
