With volume 100, Jamey Aebersold explores a new area for his jazz play-a-longs, that of pre-modern jazz. It is important for a modern musician to understand pre-modern jazz because this music is where it all began. Knowing these tunes and these styles will give you knowledge of the roots of jazz. These styles are also quite popular and can also contribute to the economic health of a working musician.
