Jazz Conception is an exciting way for players at all levels to learn the language of jazz! Jazz Conception: Bass Book and audio set features 21 solo etudes based on chord changes to standards and blues. See and hear how a well-known soloist phrases, articulates, and plays along with or without the soloist on the audio.

Play along with one of today's finest, swinging New York rhythm sections: Mike LeDonne on piano, Dennis Irwin on bass, and Kenny Washington on drums. The etudes start out fairly easy, then get progressively more difficult. Use the etudes as a bridge to solos of the masters that are usually more complicated and involved.

Learn melodies and lines that will give you a solid jazz vocabulary and musicality. Use the Book and audio sets for private lessons, for self-study, or in any combination up to a full jazz ensemble, including flute and clarinet.

If you are more advanced you may want to use the book to develop your sight-reading abilities, for transcribing the etudes off the audio (then check against the book), or for just having fun playing along with a great jazz rhythm section.
