Improvising And Soloing In The Pocket
Improvising and Soloing In The Pocket

Bart Elliott reviews a new play-along book/CD for melodic instruments by Richie Cannata and Sean J. Kennedy, Improvising and Soloing In The Pocket.

"Here is a great new play-along book featuring original compositions played by a first-call band of contemporary jazz musicians, and alos includes theoretical ideas and notes on how to approach each tune. Very well done and fun to play along with!"

— Randy Brecker
GRAMMY™ winning trumpet / flugelhorn player
