Jazz has evolved its own harmony apart from other genres of music. In order to improvise and compose in the idiom, a basic understanding of this harmony - how chords move and connect with each other - is essential. Noted author and educator Dan Haerle explains all the fundamental chord/scale theory you need. Includes voicings to over 20 standard chord progressions so you can see and hear how the various rules apply. For all musicians. No keyboard skills required, but knowing the names of the notes on a keyboard will be helpful.
