Description

Award-winning jazz educator Caleb Chapman and multiple GRAMMY® Award-winning saxophonist Jeff Coffin have created a highly effective approach to jazz articulation. Step by step, The Articulate Jazz Musician details Caleb's proven approach for mastering the fundamentals of jazz articulation, phrasing, and interpretation. The play-along tracks are designed for C, B-flat, E-flat, and bass clef instruments. Rhythm section instruments can use the play-along tracks as a "how to play it" reference. The tracks feature a world-class quartet of Jeff Coffin (tenor saxophone), Victor Wooten (bass), Roy "Futureman" Wooten (drums), and Chris Walters (piano). This method makes approaching jazz articulation easy and fun. Follow the explanations, do lots of listening, play along, practice what you have heard, and before long, you too will be an articulate jazz musician! This title is available in SmartMusic.
