Explores the "hows, whats, and whys" of practice, performance, technique, and musicianship. Sometimes, it only takes a "nudge" to move your playing to the next level. Why do musicians choose jazz improvisation as an outlet for creativity? Why are we creating this music and who are we creating it for? All you need is a little information. Master jazz educator Jerry Coker has put together this wonderfully structured text summarizing several important topics regarding jazz and jazz improvisation giving us all that much needed "nudge." Features: Jazz Study Preparation; Achieving Maximum Results; Vehicle/Tune-Types; Instrumental Techniques and Tone; Scales and Keyboard Activities; Listening and Ear Training; Teaching Jazz; Repertoire; and much more!
