Many jazz groups over the years have had success with pianoless or bassless or drumless groups, such as Gerry Mulligan and Sonny Rollins. Bass and drum accompaniment (without guitar or piano)leads to better hearing, enhanced harmonic awareness, and an overall freer sound. The lack of a comping instrument also allows the mind to concentrate more on playing with a good time feel. This versatile, first-of-its-kind play along is sure to become a favourite. Book/4CDs, 81 pages.
Rhythm section: Steve Allee (piano); Jay Anderson (bass); Adam Nussbaum (drums).
