Jazz Philharmonic is a series of original jazz compositions offered in a carefully constructed pedagogical order. All of the tunes, backgrounds and solos are self-contained performance vehicles. Absolutely no improvisation is necessary for the successful use of this book! Development of some skill with improvisation will be a natural result of its use. The accompanying Compact Disc creates a great avenue for beginning improvisation as well as playing some great jazz tunes.
