Creative Jazz Improvisation (Spiral bound)Scott D. Reeves (author)
- We can order this
For college-level courses in jazz improvisation and advanced high school students. The book is also a focused curriculum for private teachers and self-directed learners.
Integrates many things jazz musicians need to master including theoretical explanations, exercises in all keys and tempos; transcribed solos of master improvisers; repertoire lists; as well as discussions of creativity and how to play with other musicians.
This text is a direct outgrowth of Scott Reeves' experience teaching jazz improvisation at the college level for over twenty-seven years, as well as his own personal quest to develop as a jazz artist. When he first began teaching improvisation, he could not find a text that incorporated all of the diverse learning strategies that jazz musicians typically practice. So he wrote out worksheets which eventually evolved into Creative Jazz Improvisation.
