This one-of-a-kind book applies traditional technique exercises to specific jazz piano needs. Along with warm-ups, etudes isolate each technical problem within a jazz context. This allows for improvisation, directly addressing the needs of the jazz player. Practicing is not only pragmatic, it's fun! Topics include: scales (major, minor, chromatic, pentatonic, etc.), arpeggios (triads, seventh chords, upper structures), finger independence exercises (static position, held notes, Hanon exercises), parallel interval scales and exercises (thirds, fourths, tritones, fifths, sixths, octaves), and more! The book includes 45 recorded examples that are accessed online via download or streaming.
