Richie Cannata, long-time saxophonist with Billy Joel, among others, teams up with Sean Kennedy, a much-in-demand drummer who has performed and recorded with the best, to stretch your improv skills. Play along with a "first-call band," with tracks from Richie's CD, engineered to let you be the soloist! In the Pocket offers nine pieces from Cannata's new self-titled CD in a variety of styles, each clearly notated for melodies, chords, and scale forms. Each piece also has a theory worksheet for additional study. But it is the included DVD that makes In the Pocket shine - professionally recorded in a state-of-the-art studio with top-tier musicians, the play-along tracks let you "sit in" with the best. An included video round-table discussion gives plenty of background and playing tips for each piece, setting the stage for beginning improvisation or advanced players.
In the Pocket is available for any instrument and can be enjoyed by soloists or small ensembles. Richie Cannata and Sean J. Kennedy set the bar much higher in music education and play-along books with In the Pocket!
