THE JAZZ BASS BOOK - TECHNIQUE AND TRADITION BOOK WITH AUDIO ONLINE
This book is part player's manual, part historical profile, and part musical portrait. It explores in-depth all facets of jazz bass playing - from the development of "walking" and other techniques, to the human and musical interaction inside a rhythm section, to the bassists who made their instrument an integral part of America's greatest art form. Citing examples from key recordings in the jazz canon, the book defines the essence of the musical contributions made by every important jazz bassist. These achievements are explained both conceptually and technically, helping musicians and fans alike understand the art and craft of jazz bass playing. Bassists get expert guidance on mastering proper technique, practice methods, and improvisation, plus new insight into the theoretical and conceptual aspects of jazz. The companion CD featuring bass plus rhythm section allows readers to hear technical examples from the book, presented in slow and fast versions. It also offers play-along tracks of typical chord progressions.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
However, if like me you were after the CD version just be aware that despite the book cover displayed here explicitly showing the CD version and many reviews referring to the CD version, the book that I received does not have the advertised CD and palms you off with "online media included" instead. Unfortunately, the seller does not recognise this misrepresentation as a "problem" and you will be lumbered with the return costs etc (and no book). So, if you're after the CD version (as I was), best look elsewhere for fulfilment.
If you're a bass player (double or electric) and just starting out in Jazz, you'll love this book.
