100 Ultimate Jazz Riffs for Violin by Andrew D. Gordon consists of, as the title suggests, 100 Jazz riffs based on common chord progressions used in jazz such as the II-V-I, III-VI-II-V etc. in both major and minor keys. There arefive separate sections: Jazz Swing, Jazz Ballad, Jazz Funk, Jazz Waltz and Latin Jazz. Each musical example has a single note improvised melody line with the chord progression At the end of the book there is the chord progressionfor the popular jazz standard "Blue Moon" showing you how to use various examples from the 100 riffs to create an improvised solo over the chord progression. By demonstrating this technique you can pick most jazz standards andcreate your own improvisational ideas using the book. The audio files are recorded with the clarinet playing the melody line along with a rhythm section of guitar, piano bass and drums. All the examples are recorded with theviolin and the rhythm section, as well as the rhythm section without the violin. An absolute must for musicians learning and playing various jazz styles. There are different versions: a version for Flute, Guitar, Bb and Eb Sax,Piano, Trumpet, Trombone and Clarinet. Facebook Twitter Pinterest Google+ Quantity
