Product Details


This collection of comping/voicings to famous standard chord changes is the perfect companion to the Volume 1 and Volume 54 piano transcription books. Titles: Killer Joe * Blue Moon * Sugar * Misty * Afternoon in Paris * Girl from Ipanema * Sweet Georgia Brown * and more!

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 albums) and play along by yourself with the bass and drums. With the techniques learned, you'll soon be improvising your own accompaniment!
Non-Pianists: Horn players, arrangers and vocalists can use these books like dictionaries to look up favorite voicings they've heard on a particular play-along track. Written clearly for two hands, even the most novice pianist can play many sections of these books.
Teachers/Educators: Give your combo piano students instant jazz voicings and harmonies over a variety of Standards and styles. As personal tools, they will enhance your own understanding of voicings and voice movement and provide you with better skills for accompanying your students.
