Grade 3-4 If you've never tried a "play-along" CD you're in for a treat. It's a great way to make practice or performance preparation more fun. Jazz Rock in the U.S.A. has the additional attraction of teaching the elements of various pop styles and Jazz improvisation. Legendary performers serve as your examples, demonstrating the correct interpretation of each style and giving improvised solo performances that are textbook-perfect, inventive, and enjoyable. The accompaniment tracks then let you express yourself as the soloist while being accompanied by your own hot back-up band. Inventive compositions by James L. Hosay serve as the platform for this delightful publication. It's not just great learning; it's great LISTENING.
