Written by Dominic Alldis, Jazz Piano Tutor at the Royal Academy of Music, this is an invaluable tutor for those wishing to incorporate their previous classical training into learning the Jazz idiom. Divided into two parts, part one begins with improvisation using pantatonic scales, this encourages an exploration of the keyboard using a rudimentary melodic and harmonic framework. Part two begins with an introduction to bebop by applying the melodic syntax found in a Bach prelude to aharmonic progression of a jazz standard.
Features explanations and examples of:

Pentatonic Improvisation
The Blues
Rock Piano
Rhythmic Displacement
Scale Theory
Major Scale Theory Applied
Melodic Syntax
The Language of Bebop
Minor Scale Theory Applied
Pentatonic Scale Theory Applied
Left-Hand Accompaniment
Walking Bass Lines
Thematic Development
Performance Tips.
This book represents the culmination of hundreds of hours spent teaching jazz piano, and should be an enjoyable course of study for anyone who loves jazz piano and who wants to make steps towards understanding the vast array of possibilities open to the improvising pianist.
