Learn to improvise in the Gypsy jazz violin style even if you have never improvised before. The style is closely associated with French jazz violinist Stephane Grappelli, who played with Gypsy jazz guitar player Django Reinhardt. Each lesson in the book covers specific key aspects of the Gypsy jazz violin style. The techniques are presented sequentially and the underlying music theory is introduced on a 'need to know' basis.Getting Into Gypsy Jazz Violin includes charts of classic swing tunes such as Avalon, The Sheik of Araby, and After You've Gone and includes access to online audio featuring authentic accompaniment tracks and model violin performances.

    Book begins at the perfect theoretical level for me - intermediate - and moves fluently from there with the use of easy / challenging practical exercises wonderfully accompanied by the online CD. Well done !
