FUNKIFYING THE CLAVE: AFRO-CUBAN GROOVES FOR BASS AND DRUMS
Funkifying the Clave: Afro-Cuban Grooves For Bass and Drums attempts to provide drummers and bass players with an understanding of the application of Afro-Cuban rhythms to contemporary jazz, funk, and rock. We decided that the project should be a joint bass and drum book because the key to understanding and executing these types of feels comes from each player's awareness of what the other is doing. In seeing how both parts work together, it is possible to develop a feel for the particular rhythmic relationship that occurs in this type of music, thus enabling you to 'funkify' your own grooves. Includes 2 audio CDs, where each song is available as a full band, without the drum tracks, and minus the bass tracks for you to play along with. Also includes complete breakdown analysis of the drum and bass guitar examples. Written in standard notation and TAB. Includes audio CD. 64 pages. Our Price: US$29.95

ESSENTIAL JAZZ LINES IN THE STYLE OF JOHN COLTRANE
Saxophonist John Coltrane was one of the most innovative, creative, and influential jazz artists of the 20th Century. Both stylistically and harmonically, he opened doors for others to follow. This book will focus on the first period of Coltrane's career, when he was with Miles Davis, and the jazz vocabulary he used. First, to help the student better understand Coltrane's bebop style of improvising, the authors discuss the use of guide tones, bebop scales, three to flat nine, targeting, and other techniques. Then the text presents numerous one-, two-, and three-measure jazz lines in Coltrane's style grouped by the harmony over which they can be used. The accompanying play-along CD provides the rhythm parts for each section, including a track for each section that modulates through the cycle of fourths, helping you master the phrases in all keys. By combining various lines, musicians will be able to mix and match numerous combinations of these lines to play over ii-V-I progressions, turnarounds, and other harmonic situations. Incorporate these essential jazz lines into your vocabulary and you will be able to create your own lines in the style of John Coltrane. Written in standard notation only (no TAB). Includes audio CD. 56 pages. Our Price: US$17.95

BEBOP SCALES IN BASS CLEF
Phrase like a pro! By simply adding one chromatic note, you can convert the most commonly used scales into "Bebop" scales. Bebop scales almost magically turn scales into jazz lines, adding melodic flow and logical forward motion to your solos. This makes hitting those "target notes" much easier and facilitates the seamless connection of one chord to another. The one added note makes all the difference!

Joe's simple practice method will have you hearing, using, and understanding Bebop scales very quickly. Here, you will find Bebop scales and patterns in all 12 keys for Major, Minor, Dominant 7th, and Locrian (Half-diminished) scales. Handy 6 x 9 size. 47 pages. Written in standard notation (no TAB).
