14 JAZZ & FUNK & ETUDES C Instruments
Bob Mintzer (Yellow Jackets)
This playalong study Features Bob Mintzer of the Yellow Jackets and a great rhythm section
It may be used a number of ways. First you my just listen to the CD, Then you may want to try and
sight read the etudes. Although they are called etudes they are more like songs
in my opininon (listen to the soundclips). Now lets do some work on Improvising.
At the beginning of each etude are study notes showing what scales to use
and other thoughts on the song. Now take these bits of knowledge and go to
the end of the CD and you will find all the tunes recorded without the lead lines.
This is where you may play the written lead lines with the rhythm section
or just improvise. Great listening/study material.
