Premiere: new series of books with solos over famous jazz standards – Jazzld.com

Do you like to play jazz solos, but need new inspiration? Or are you not yet a skilled improviser, but want to get started with jazz soloing right away? Then I hope I have come up with the solution for you:

After month of work, I can finally present my new venture, Jazzld.com where you will find jazz books with written solos based on famous jazz standards. There are currently three books available; Jazz’ld Vol. 1, Jazz’ld Vol. 2 and (surprise!) Jazz’ld Vol. 3. Each book is written to match a selected Aebersold play-along recording, so if you have access to one of those already, you will get even more out of the books.

Jazz'ld vol. 1-3

Based on famous jazz standards

The Jazz’ld Jazz Solos books will let you play great jazz solos over the chord progressions from famous jazz standards. You don’t need any improvising experience to get started.

The books consist of jazz solos, written over the chord progressions from famous jazz standards. You will find solos based on the chord progressions from “Summertime,” “Watermelon Man,” “Autumn Leaves,” “Have You Met Miss Jones,” “My Favourite Things,” “Scrapple from the Apple” and many other well-known jazz standards. Each solo consists of several choruses, gradually getting more and more challenging. See the full list of featured jazz standards here.

The books are made to be playable on virtually any instrument, but being a bone player myself, I can assure that they are an excellent match for trombone.

Who are you?

I had a number of different categories of musicians in mind when writing the books. Does any of these descriptions fit on you?

  • Trombone student entering the world of jazz
  • Advanced jazz trombone player
  • Amateur musician
  • Trombone educator
  • Professional jazz player
  • Classical trombone player

Jazz’ld with Aebersold play-along albums

Have you ever practiced using Jamey Aebersold play-along albums? Although they can’t give you the same experience as when you interact with musicians in person, the Aebersold tracks are still a great tool for learning and practicing jazz standards.

The Jazz’ld books are written as a complement to carefully selected Aebersold albums. If you have one of them already, the Jazz’ld solos will let you rediscover it in a new and fun way. Each Jazz’ld solo will match the form, key and tempo of the equivalent Aebersold play-along track.

The books

Jazz’ld Solos Vol. 1 is perfect for aspiring jazz players with solos based on Canataloupe Island and other easy tunes. SUITABLE FOR JAMEY AEBERSOLD VOL. 54 – MAIDEN VOYAGE  (NOT INCLUDED)

Transcribed jazz solos

One of the best ways to learn jazz is to play transcribed solos. Transcribing solos yourself is great ear training, but it is a time consuming task. If you want to get started right away, the Jazz’ld series will let you start playing high-quality jazz solos right away.

Playing transcribed jazz solos as played by jazz masters are often technically challenging. Jazz’ll gives you get the same experience, but you are able to choose the level of difficulty since each jazz etude gets more challenging for each chorus.

I use the solos for my students on many different levels, as well as play them myself as etudes. Great for sight reading and building up chops!

I hope you like the concept and the books. There is a free sample from the books waiting for you at Jazzld.com

Play on!

    1. Another major difference between the two is that while
      PPC is a paid form of advertising, organic search engine optimization is
      absolutely free. Any business to conduct business on the web should have a web site created especially for creating an awareness of their products and ser-vices to the planet at
      large. Depending on how how much time you have you can do this about once per week.
      Tests with a model like Page – Rank have shown that the system is not
      infallible.

    2. Although being aware of keyword percentages is a good idea, it is more important that content be
      relevant and useful to the visitor. When Page – Rank was
      patented the patent was assigned to Stanford University.

      SEO experts and other agencies and consultants:.

    4. If your site is relatively sound, the most important results for you to consider are the

      Depending on how how much time you have you can do this about
      once per week. In this way, it is informed about the kind of information that a

    5. My partner and I stumbled over here from a different page
      and thought I might check things out. I like what I see so now
      i am following you. Look forward to checking
