Sheet music + cd

One of the world's most popular Jazz etude books; popular because the etudes are hip and fun to play. Very popular among teachers! Designed for sax but suitable for all instruments. This Volume contains 12 easy level exercises and 10 etudes. Includes a play-along CD with a professional musician playing the etudes. Each etude is recorded in 3 keys (to facilitate Eb, Bb, and C instruments). The Eb track includes an Alto Saxophonist playing the etudes. The Bb track includes a Tenor Sax soloist and the C track includes a Jazz Guitarist. All are accompanied by a nice piano, bass, and drums rhythm section. Each track is stereo seperated (solo instrument, piano, bass, drums on one track - piano, bass and drums on the other track) so that the soloist can be eliminated and the student can play along with piano bass and drums.

"One of the most challenging problems has always been the task of making jazz articulations an phrasings clear to the young player. Niehaus' book is certain to prove itself a valuable means to this end. It is unique" - Stan Kenton

"There should have been a book on jazz phrasing and articulation such as this long ago! These exercises and etudes can save a student months, even years, of misunderstanding." - Bill Perkins

"Spelling out jazz phrasing and conception as this book does, makes it an invaluable aid for the serious young student." - Jack Nimitz
