Book with online audio. The purpose of this book is to explore the relationship between jazz harmony and improvisation by studying the vertical structures of chords and their function in a progression, and the horizontal or linear application of harmony to melodic improvisation. Each topic is accompanied by musical examples that help you hear the connection between harmony and melody and to develop a more melodic and creative way of thinking about improvising. You'll learn to: improvise using a rich harmonic palette over many tyoes of chord changes, reharmonize melodies using diatonic, hybrid and polychord voicings; use parallel modes and dominant substitution as sources for new harmonic colors, more.
