BASS SOLOS EN CLAVE - EBOOK/PDF VERSION
Bass Solos en Clave was born as a result of the mixture of Caribbean rhythms and the American jazz. When we combine the jazz repertoire with the Latin rhythms, we combine them with the clave and we create a salsa blues, a Latin jazz, a clave jazz or what ever you want to call it, and this combination creates an energetic, flavored and contagious fusion that makes you vibrate from head to toe with the rhythms in clave and the improvisation.

Bass Solos en Clave takes 10 classic Jazz standards, and provides a solo to each, giving an excellent example of a solo played through the changes of that arrangement, applied to a clave rhythm. Written in standard notation and TAB. Audio tracks are in MP3 format. Each MP3 has the Bass on the left channel and accompaniment is on the right, so if you want to play along, just pan it to the right and have no bass. 29 pages.
