Covering a span of time and styles ranging from jazz beginnings to some of the most recent developments, this book collects and analyzes many of the most frequently used jazz, blues, and Latin jazz left-hand piano techniques. Generally, each proposed technique is first introduced by a "model" figure derived from original sources, followed by an explanation of its pattern, and finally by some sample applications using well-known songs, harmonic progressions, or original pieces. For the sake of completeness, most of these left-hand applications are integrated with sample right-hand parts that validate the efficacy and concrete application of the left hand figures. Numerous styles of jazz piano are taught, including: stride piano, Latin stylings, blues, boogie, swing, walking bass, jazz waltz, rootless voicings and many other concepts. Characteristics of jazz legends including Erroll Garner, Jelly Roll Morton, Earl Hines, George Gershwin, Fats Waller, Eubie Blake and many others are explored. As with all books in this series, it includes a unique lay-flat binding to help keep the music open on the music stand.

This collection of ten favorite hymns and gospel songs is perfect for your praise band or rhythm section. These familiar tunes take on fresh appeal, with styles ranging from up-tempo jazz to bossa nova to jazz waltz to slow ballads. Each arrangement is designed to feature a specific solo wind instrument (sax, flute, flugelhorn or trumpet). Transposed parts for C and B-flat melodic instruments are also provided. The melody line is passed between the piano, guitar and the solo instrument throughout each arrangement. These arrangements are not designed as piano solos with instrumental back-up, but rather with the piano as part of the group. The arrangements work best for rhythm players who can improvise from a chord chart, so all parts include chord symbols; the drum/electric bass part has some transcribed passages, and the piano part is fully transcribed. Program these pieces for a Sunday evening concert or as preludes or offertories in a morning worship service.
