Jazz Phrasing for Trombone features ten melodic pieces which are easy to play, yet convey the essence of mainstream (Swing/Bebop/Bossa) jazz vocabulary. The pieces are catchy and melodic, demonstrating the use of sequence and voice-leading to make a musical statement. This book includes a play-along CD featuring trombonist Russ Phillips playing each song with a world-class rhythm section. The CD also includes tracks featuring Greg Fishman demonstrating each song on alto saxophone, giving trombone players the option ofplaying along with Russ Phillips on trombone or with Greg Fishman on alto saxophone. In addition, there are play-along tracks featuring just the rhythm section. These tracks are great for practicing the songs, chords, scales, voice-leading lines and soloing over the chords progressions. Jazz Phrasing for Trombone will provide valuable insights into a melodic approach to jazz improvisation. This book is recommended for trombone players of all levels who wish to improve their tone, articulation, phrasing, and understanding of thematic development.
