Approaching The Standards
by Dr. Ronald C. McCurdy
and Dr. Willie L. Hill, Jr.
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.
