OVERVIEW

9 jazz standards arranged for multiple instruments for improving your soloing and improvisational skills.

An innovative approach to teaching improvisation, Alfred Jazz Play-Along Series, Vol.1: Strayhorn & More (Flexible Instrumentation version) features 9 jazz standards with parts for C, B-flat, E-flat, and bass clef instruments and includes a sample written-out jazz solo for you to listen to, study, and play.

The included CD offers a demo track, play-along track, and split track functionality, and features a professional rhythm section and horn player to learn the melodies, styles, and sample solos. In addition, the play-along tracks allow a soloist or group to learn and perform with the rhythm section only. Split tracks offer piano, guitar, and bass players the opportunity to perform with the track by dialing in/out left or right stereo channels.

Each tune has specific improvisation tips and suggestions and the sample solo is an invaluable asset that makes learning how to improvise easier. Play-alongs have never been more complete.
