Bob Mintzer has written this collection of studies for musicians who wish to extend themselves in improvisation, composition, sightreading and general musicianship skills. Each etude has a theoretical explanation, suggestions for performance and plenty of tips for practice routines. All the books are compatible and written so that the etudes can be performed together with other musicians. Hear Bob demonstrate the etudes, then play along with the professional rhythm section. By studying and practising these etudes the student will develop the skills necessary to be able to: (i) Play a simple melody slowly, smoothly and beautifully with character and style. (ii) Play solos that are logical extensions of the melody. (iii) Play a simple melody in a groove style that swings hard. (iv) Play solos that interact with the rhythm section. Bk/2CD
