    I found this collection very enjoyable for my level. I've studied clarinet for 18 months and discovered it's not easy to find music that is interesting for an adult student. It's exciting (and motivating) to play some of my favorite jazz ballads. The lead sheets can be...

    a little confusing if you aren't used to seeing the chords written above the music, but once I became familiar with the format it wasn't a problem. Also, the accompanying CD is very useful. There are two versions of each song, one with the whole ensemble, and one version minus the soloist. The recording is well done for this sort of thing. The bass was particularly useful for counting.

    This is the first time I have purchased a 'play-a-long' CD and music. I am delighted with it. The parts are v.simple and easy to read, even for a pore sight reader such as me. I haven't played along with other musicians for many years and...

    no longer have the opportunity. Keeping good time discipline was initially more difficult than I imagined, but v. good practice.Once the tunes are mastered , it is then fairly easy to improvise jazz solos. This is v satisfying.I play Alto Sax

    A great job again by Hal Leonard,these backing tracks are great and professional.I have played along with all the tracks and they sound fantastic. One thing that I do very much like is not only the improvisation that one can put over the tacks, but each track gives...

    one the opportunity to complete a solo improvisation over a number of bars in each tune. Thanks for this product.Are there more of this sort ?
