The forerunner to the awarded-winning Exploring Jazz Piano books, Improvising Blues Piano examines the harmonic, rhythmic and melodic aspects of the blues, assuming a basic competence of around grade 3.All styles are covered from the 1920s to the present, from the early boogie pioneers via swing, gospel, jump-jive, New Orleans, Chicago and Kansas City schools, to the more sophisticated jazz and funky blues of the current scene. Over 60 pieces, including many original compositions by the author, together with new arrangements of well-known standarts such as 'Ain't No Sunshine', 'Blueberry Hill', 'Blue Monk', 'Got My Mojo workin', 'Honky Tonk Train Blues', 'How Long Blues', 'Just a Closer Walk with Thee', 'Pine Top's Boogie Woogie', 'St Louis Blues' etc.• Authentic left-hand patterns and bass lines• Professional chord voicings, blues scales, licks and riffs• Co-ordination exercises for both hands• Suggested listeningEach chapter is graded within itself, providing some challenging pieces towards the end. Improvising is encouraged at all stages, with assignments giving ideas and guidance.The accompanying CD contains all the pieces, including some play-along tracks, performed by Tim Richards.A very useful and comprehensive survey of different blues styles. Tim's clear demonstrations on the accompanying CD make this the essential book for all aspiring blues pianists (Jools Holland)This book leaves any possible competition standing at the post. (Brian Priestley, Jazzwise Magazine)I highly recommend the book. It's the best I've seen yet... Helpful features include a grat Cd by the London-based Richards, who is a top-notch performer, recording artist and educator. It's almost like having your own personal instructor. (Blues Review, USA)The presentation is immaculate, the method is logical and friendly. This book feels good... (MOJO)A brilliant new publication from Schott. Each chapter extends the player's harmonic knowledge and gives clear instructions how to progress... You learn not just how to play the blues but also its history and major exponents. Tim Richard's enthusiasm for the subject is both infectious and inspiring. (Piano Journal)For blues piano, it's about as thorough as any book I've seen. (Jamey Aebersold, USA)Beautifully presented, it has clarity, heart and comprehensiveness. (Michael Garrick)
