When in their teens, Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins, Miles Davis, J J Johnson and many others would have loved to practice and solo with these tracks because they are THOROUGH, COMPREHENSIVE and extremely important in developing jazz skills. “Getting’ It Together” is where it’s at for playing JAZZ.
If you use this set with Volume 1, you will have a solid foundation to meet any new challenge.

It also has a very slow blues in F and one in Bb. 31 different tracks with a lot of variety, including root movements that are 1,2,and 4 bars each and move up/down chromatically, in tri-tones, around the circle of fourths, and randomly.
