The Art of Comping is a "hands-on" (first-of-its-kind) workbook which enables you to practice an often-neglected aspect of jazz piano playing. The text points out important aspects of the comping and offers a number of specific suggestions and chord voicings for each tune. You hear the author comp and you get a chance to comp with the same rhythm section, without the piano track. Rhythm section: Jim Mcneely - piano, Rufus Reid - bass, Victor Lewis - drums, soloists: Art Farmer - flugelhorn, Steve Erquiaga - guitar, Bobby Watson - alto sax. Text: English / French / German. 96 pages.
