Improve Your Time and Harmonic Awareness
The Jamey Aebersold Volume 114 Good Time book and 4-CD set includes 15 play-along tracks for all instrumentalists wishing to improve their sense of time, sharpen their harmonic awareness, or just experiment with different rhythm section configurations. The best way to develop good time is to play with musicians who have good time. Instructors and musicians are Adam Nussbaum and Jay Anderson who take you through various tempos and styles based on the changes to well-known standards.
CD 1 is a split track with bass on one channel and drums on the other. CD 2 is bass only on both channels. CD 3 is drums only on both channels. CD 4 is piano on both channels, bass on the left, and drums on the right.
Many jazz groups over the years have had success with pianoless or bassless or drumless groups, such as Gerry Mulligan and Sonny Rollins. Bass and drum accompaniment (without guitar or piano) leads to better hearing, enhanced harmonic awareness, and an overall freer sound. The lack of a comping instrument also allows the mind to concentrate more on playing with a good time feel. This versatile, first-of-its-kind play-along is sure to become a favorite.
