Jazz Vocalists
Jazz Improvisation Series
Approaching The Standards
by Dr. Ronald C. McCurdy
and Dr. Willie L. Hill, Jr.

In this series, compositions give musicians a well-balanced selection of music to help the "fearful to the fearless" improve their jazz skills. They have provided a learning situation that is similar to a typical jazz gig setting and included clearly written musical examples to demonstrate how an improvised
solo might be constructed.
