Complete piano transcription book from Vol. 64 "Salsa/Latin Jazz" - featuring Mark Levine. See how to play authentic Salsa/Latin voicings and figures from a widely recognized authority over the changes of: Sabor, Linda Chicana, Mambo Inn, Afro Blue, Manteca, Piccadillo, Curacao, and more!! Why you should consider this and other Aebersold piano voicing transcription books: Ever listen to a great jazz pianist and wonder "what's he doing there?" Now you'll know! Here, as never before, is an opportunity to see REAL jazz piano voicings and comping over REAL songs in REAL live musical settings. These historic books contain NOTE-FOR-NOTE transcriptions, exactly as recorded, of the exciting piano accompaniment from the World Famous Aebersold Play-A-Long series. Not just for pianists, there are many ways for ALL MUSICIANS to use these wonderful musical tools:

Pianists: First, listen closely to the pianist on the respective Play-A-Long recording (sold separately). Next, reading from the book, play along with him, imitating his style. Finally, TURN HIM OFF (using the special stereo separation on all of our CDs) and play along by yourself with the bass and drums. With the techniques learned, you'll soon be improvising your own accompaniment!

Non-Pianists: Horn players, arrangers and vocalists can use these books like dictionaries to look up favorite voicings they've heard on a particular Play-A-Long track. Written clearly for two hands, even the most novice pianist can play many sections of these books.

    Bought this to pick up some comp techniques for one tune. What was written translated exactly into the band I'm in and left plenty of room for further improv. Can't wait to play some of the other stuff in the book too.
