James Rae's “Jazz Zone” for clarinet explains in the simplest possible terms the essence of improvisation, with examples and backing tracks on a free CD.

Improvisation, Jamming or Busking is something that does not come naturally to everyone but, with the help of James Rae’s “Jazz Zone”, it can be learned!

James has lived and breathed this style all his musical life and, in this book, he offers this wealth of experience to all players, even those of very modest technical ability. Written out examples are followed by clear guidance on how to invent your own solos over the given chord structure and everything is built upon the inspiring backing tracks on the free CD which, of course, includes James himself illustrating how it should be done.

“Jazz Zone” is available for flute, clarinet, saxophone and trumpet and is now repackaged to include instruction in French and German.
