240 Chromatic Exercises + 1165 Jazz Lines Phrases for Bass Clef Instrument Players (Paperback)
This theoretical book is meant to improve contemporary jazz styles techniques for all musician players of modern jazz.
We will divide this book into scale exercises, arpeggio exercises, jazz line phrases as well as contemporary chord progressions. Exercises consist of jazz solos by great musicians such Miles Davis, Bill Evans, John Coltrane, Freddy Hubbard, Woody Shaw, Wayne Shorter, Joe Henderson, Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, Joe Farrel, Dave Liebman. Bob Berg, Michael and Randy Brecker, Jerry Bergonzi, George Garzone, Tom Harrel, Chris Potter, Brad Mehldau, Joey Calderazzo, Kenny Garret, Branford Marsalis, Walt Weiskopf, Rich Perry, Seamus Blake, Alex Sipiagin and many others well known musicians these days.
The majority of theses exercises should be transposed to all twelve tones, so we can achieve perfect coordination> Major chords, Minos chords and Dominant chords will be extended to their highest level, in scales, arpeggios and chromatic form. There will not be key signature centers, so we will work all exercises in accidental way.
These exercises were made as an extension of my first book Imprivise Now (Charles Colin Publications). There are as well many improvisational lines transcribed from some of the previously mentioned musicians.
