The Alfred Jazz Play-Along series for Rhythm Section goes way beyond the other play-alongs. This rhythm section book contains written-out parts for piano, bass, and drumset. The instrument parts include comping suggestions and sample solos that make learning to improvise easier. These parts can also be conveniently used as small group arrangements. In addition, each of the nine jazz standards includes the melody and a sample written-out jazz solo for you to listen to, play, and practice. The innovative, easy-to-use TNT2 Custom Mix software on the accompanying DVD-ROM allows you to slow down or speed up the tempo, mix and customize a demo or play-along track, loop a section for specific practice, and more. Featuring a professional rhythm section, the demo tracks provide examples of piano comping, bass lines, drum parts, and improvisation. By removing your instrument part from a track mix, you can play along to practice with the rest of the rhythm section. In addition, each jazz standard has specific improvisation tips and suggestions.
