Simply Jazz Play-a-long Series

The ideal band instrumentaion for these charts is: 5 saxes, 6 brass, 5 rhythm.

They will also work extremely well with a small combo' (Mix & Match): trumpet, alto sax, tenor sax, trombone, baritone sax & rhythm section or similar instrumentation.The notes in trumpet 1 are all in the stave and the piano part is notated.  The guitar part has a chord guide sheet.  The charts all have different feels - Latin, Swing, Funk, Rock with melody, chords & scales supplied.  Every note is well articulated and with Jazz effects. Tracks 6 - 10 on the play-a-long CD are the same five tunes recorded without solos.

The melody, chords & scales are supplied on the parts. The student plays along with the CD, playing the melody and creating their own solo. This section of the CD is ideal for home practice, classroom teaching, or one on one teaching. The rhythm section parts are written out - so you can add a couple of horns and "wail" away!
