Book/Online audio set. Coltrane was one of the most innovative and influential jazz artists of the 20th century. This book focuses on the first period of his career when he was with Miles Davis. To help you better understand his bebop style a discussion of the use of guide tones, bebop scales, the three to flat-nine concept, targeting, and other techniques are covered first. Then come numerous one, two, and three-measure jazz lines in Coltrane's style in note/tab, grouped by the harmony over which they can be used. The audio provides the rhythm parts for each section, including tracks that modulate through the circle of fourths, helping you master the phrases in all keys. By combining various lines, you'll be able to mix and match numerous combinations of these lines to play over ii-V-I progressions, turnarounds, and other harmonic situations. Beginning to intermediate. Note/tab. 64 pp.
