Exercises for Developing Jazz Improvisation

This method book covers some improvisation techniques to help the developing jazz player expand their jazz skills. It can be broken down into 3 sections:

Introducing Bebop Scales


This section introduces you to the 3 main bebop scales relating to major, minor and dominant 7th chords. It relates each scale to chord tones, moves melodic shapes through each scale type as well as giving you a few sample ‘licks’ to get started. There are also 2 written sample solos using these techniques with audio demonstration and backing tracks to accompany the practice exercises and sample solos.


Pentatonic Scales


This section explores 5 pentatonic scale types - major, b6, b3, minor and b4. There are 4 basic patterns which are then adapted for each scale type along with a list of suggested scale/chord applications. There are also 2 written sample solos using these techniques with audio demonstration and backing tracks to accompany the practice exercises and sample solos. .

Approach Notes and Enclosure

This section covers 2 note, 3 note and 4 note approach notes and enclosures. Each note grouping is written in all 12 keys ready to practice around the circle of 5ths. There are also 2 written sample solos using these techniques with audio demonstration and backing tracks to accompany the practice exercises and sample solos.

Although originally created for sax students, the book has now been adapted for all instruments and is available for C, Bb, Eb and Bass Clef instruments.
