Jazz Conception

Jazz Conception composed by Jim Snidero. For Alto Saxophone and Baritone Saxophone. Medium-Advanced. Book and CD. Published by Advance Music (AV.14720).

Soloist: Jim Snidero, Alto Saxophone. Jazz Conception is a new and exciting way for players at all levels to learn the language of jazz! Each book/CD set features 21 solo etudes based on chord changes to standards and blues. The same 21 etudes transposed and adapted for the main jazz instruments. See and hear how a well known soloist phrases and articulates and play along with or without the soloist on the CD. Play along with one of todays finest, swinging New York rhythm sections: Mike LeDonne on piano, Dennis Irwin on bass, and Kenny Washington on drums. Start out fairly easy, then get progressively more difficult. Use the etudes as a bridge to solos of the masters that are usually more complicated and involved. Learn melodies and lines that will give you a solid jazz vocabulary and musicality. Use the book/CD sets for private lessons, for self-study, or in any combination up to a full jazz ensemble, including flute and clarinet. If you are more advanced you may want to use the book to develop your sight reading abilities, for transcribing the etudes off the CD (then check against the book) or for just having fun playing along with a great jazz rhythm section. Use as an improvisation study, learning how to construct a swinging, logical solo - works especially well in combination with the Study Guide. The Jazz Conception Series is also perfectly suited for the class room. It can be used to develop younger students jazz style in a big band or small group. In an improvisation class the teacher can use the etudes as studies in improvisation. The Study Guide provides an analysis of each etude, along with practice assignments for each etude.

  • May 20, 2008 Classic solos

    I played this book for years, one of my two or three favorites from my good sized collection. The solos are great, some relatively easy, some challenging, but all interesting and fun. Snidero is such a good sax player, too, a great example of tone and phrasing to emulate. These...

    solos are written for the alto, too, so they are in the perfect range for the instrument (which is not the case for the tenor transcription of this book). This is a stellar book to fill the gap between reading fake books and creating your own jazz solos. A classic.

  • August 29, 2007 A need to have book

    Jim Snidero's Jazz Conception book is a great start to learning jazz phrasing and articulation. Each etude is designed to give the student an enjoyable, yet constructive experience. The 23 etudes increase in difficulty and offer varied arrays of tempos and styles. The cd that is included with the...

    book allows the student to play along with Snidero and his rhythm section, or separate the lead saxophone by cutting the right audio channel. A new feature that is included on the cd is a section that includes MP3 files of the rhythm section only. All in all, Jazz Conception is a great way to begin learning the language of jazz.

  • July 16, 2007 An Excellent Middle School student workout

    This book has 20 different songs, which become more challenging as they proceed. The accompanying CD helps to clarify the rhythms very well.
