Book 1 of a two-volume series that presents the fundamentals of jazz in a logical and accessible way, primarily through short progressive exercises. Ideal for classically trained pianists in traditional lessons who are a little cautious of learning jazz, as well as for those simply wishing to expand their existing “jazzabilities”. Also very useful for pianists interested in participating in a school jazz program. The online audio tracks are indispensable to the series, in particular the fun and practical Q&A improv exercises.

Features 9 performance pieces: Funkasaurus • Midtown Strut • Jumpin' Jazz • Stepping Out • Petite Waltz • Elling Tones • Blue Bop • Avenue D • Big Earl's Honky Tonk Blues.

Concepts covered include: • Improvisation • Swing rhythms • Common jazz chords and scales • Accompaniment techniques • 12-bar blues, and much more!

NOTE: Jazz Piano Basics is a revised and vastly expanded version of the Jazzabilities series.
