Author: Andrew D. Gordon
Publisher: ADG Productions
Outstanding Jazz Keyboard/Organ Solos by Andrew Gordon is designed to show how to play solos or improvise over common chord progressions used in the Jazz idiom. There are 12 examples, each one being at least 32 measures in length and consists of different jazz styles including:
- Mid Tempo & Slow Tempo-Jazz
Not only are the solos notated, but also the chord voicings and bass lines notated giving you the ability to study how each of the various parts work in a Jazz setting. Learn how the great keyboardists/organists such as: Jimmy Smith, Joey DeFrancesco, Herbie Hancock, Chester Thompson play, by utilizing chord progressions from popular jazz songs including: Misty, Girl from Ipanema, This Masquerade, Europa etc. as well as 12 bar Blues progressions.
This is great source material to learning new improvisational ideas as well as learning chord voicings and rhythmic patterns that would take you many hours of study, listening and transcribing the parts from albums.
The audio files that comes with the book has the examples recorded twice. The first version has the solo recorded with the rhythm backing tracks, the second version has the backing tracks without the solo recorded so that you can practice soloing along with the backing tracks.
Customer Comments About This Book:
I've been looking for a book like this all along. I bought the book to help me with my piano soloing and found out that it can also help me with my guitar soloing. I love jazz blues and your examples are also helping me with a couple of other books I have on Jazz structures and Jazz accompaniment. By the way, I also have a couple of books authored by Carlos Campos.S.D. CA
