Soul Jazz Guitar is a collection of Randy Johnston's tunes and solos specifically designed for the intermediate student. Rather than merely transcribing solos from his CDs, he plays material at a reasonable tempo specifically with the student in mind. There are tunes ("Downtime," "The Philadelphians," and "Rolling at the Summit") that appear on his commercial CDs, but included here are versions that are new and totally unique to this project. There are also some improvisations on some familiar "standard" progressions to help the student deal with these changes when he or she encounters them at jam sessions etc. Randy has tried to present his take on the Jazz language as clearly and faithfully as possible to make the solos easy to learn. He hopes that this will lead the student not just to imitation but also to develop his or her own approach to these progressions just as he developed his own approach from listening to the playing of his role models over the years.
