Learn how to create your own etudes in the style of your favorite musicians! Doing so reveals their favorite phrases and stylistic tendencies, allowing you to better understand and absorb their approach and concept (plus, there are unique, hip etudes that will be fun to play and share with your friends and students). Well-known pianist David Hazeltine used this method to develop his own style and refined it over the years to help his students. Now, it is available in book form for all who want to master the art of better phrasing. This is not a piano book. This is a single-line approach designed for all instrumentalists, including piano. "David Hazeltine is, quite simply, one of the finest musicians I've had the chance to perform with in my two-plus decades as a professional musician. Over the years, I've asked Dave to show me some of his harmonic and melodic concepts. Most times, he'll present me with a portion of one of his etudes that he's come up with. I've found them all to be tremendously informative. They are crafted in a way that makes the concepts contained in each exercise very organic, and readily accessible to me in my own improvisations. Dave's meticulous study of the masters of his instrument has yielded a treasure trove of information. His etudes are designed to maximize the internalization of particular styles and modern Jazz language in general. I'm confident that this book will provide countless hours---years even---of enjoyment and learning to all who take the time to look into the mind and the learning process of this brilliant musician." ---Eric Alexander

Miles Davis was one of the most innovative musicians of the 20th century. This book will shed some insight into the music and soloing devices he used during his earlier periods. First, to help the student better understand Miles' early bebop style of improvising, the authors discuss the use of guide tones, bebop scales, three to flat nine, targeting, and other techniques commonly used in the bebop language. Then the text presents numerous one-, two-, and three-measure jazz lines in Miles' style grouped by the harmony over which they can be used. the accompanying play-along CD provides the rhythm parts for each section, including a track for each section that modulates through the cycle of fourths, helping you master the phrases in all keys. By combining various lines, musicians will be able to mix and match numerous combinations of these lines to play over ii-V-I progressions, turnarounds, and other harmonic situations. Incorporate these essential jazz lines into your vocabulary and you will be able to create your own lines in the style of Miles Davis.

The free jazz revolution that began in the mid-1950s represented an artistic and sociopolitical response to the economic, racial, and musical climate of jazz and the nation. In parallel with the American civil rights movement, free jazz exemplified an escape from the restrictive rules of musical performance with an emphasis on individual expression and musical democracy. A handful of major individual artists opened the gateway to intense personalization of performances through astonishing new techniques, and inner-city collectives were formed to support artistic experimentation and community education. Reviled by most critics and jazz fans in its nascence, and still highly misunderstood today, free jazz eventually had a profound influence on subsequent developments in jazz and rock, forever changing the musical landscape. Todd S. Jenkins' handy encyclopedia of free music reflects upon the personalities, styles, organizations, philosophy and politics of a musical form to which too little prior attention has been devoted. Directing readers to outstanding recorded performances, it serves as an essential introduction to this difficult but rewarding music, offering a scholarly historical and cultural overview that provides a critical assessment of one of the most misunderstood periods in American music. Filling many gaps left in previously published literature on the subject, Jenkins's work is a necessary addition to the shelves of music libraries and the collections of jazz aficionados alike.
