This collection of jazz etudes with an accompanying audio gives students a fun and effective way to learn to play jazz style blues lines. The audio tracks provide a professional rhythm section (piano, bass, drums) to play along with, plus recordings of professional jazz musicians playing each etude. The recordings help to provide a model for the student's stylistic development, and an opportunity to play with a great band! Each of the 12 etudes provides a new challenge to master. Includes access to online audio.
