What is the Jazz Workbook

“The ability to play chord changes is the very essence of JAZZ. By playing single notes in specific melodic shapes the mind is able to visualize and ears able to identify the available combination of notes at every harmonic change. Understanding these melodic shapes allows the student to execute some of the more sophisticated sounds used in the craft of improvising. Enjoy the journey.
