Regular price £11.50 Sale

Who wouldn't enjoy sitting in with a horn section playing music in the style of James Brown (Maceo Parker, Fred Wesley, Pee Wee Ellis/JB horns); Earth, Wind & Fire (Phoenix Horns); Tower Of Power; Kool & the Gang; Blood, Sweat & Tears; or Michael Jackson (Jerry Hey, Bill Reichenbach)? This play along introduces the player to raw Funk & Soul Power horn section backings and solos that really make the six original pieces in this edition take off!

That's not all, though. You can also take over the role of the soloist, if you like, leading the wind band, accompanied by the funky rhythm section and improvising over simple harmonies. This book will show you how to do it, too. Includes a bonus track for practising the right style of funky phrasing. Get the funk!
