A Guide To Non-Jaz Improvisation Composed by Weissman/Fox. For Piano. Published by Mel Bay Publications Inc. (Catalog # 20828BCD, UPC: 9780786675524)

This book will appeal to pianists who want to learn to improvise in many of th e styles current today including blues, rock, Latin-American, country, New Age , World Music, etc.

The non-jazz improvisation series is a concept that germinated in Dick Weissman's mind while he was attending music school. He wrote a 15-piece arrangement of the old square dance tune, Cripple Creek, and wanted the trombone to take a so lo as part of the arrangement. When the trombonist kept playing a bebop solo t hat was totally unsuitable for the chart, Dick realized that - in addition to the many musicians who do not improvise - there are even jazz musicians who do n't know how to improvise outside the limits of their own stylistic background s.
