I started lisenting to jazz - only weather report(this is jazz vol 10), jaco (self titled) and stanley clarke(live greek) and i really love it. I am working on Ed friedland's Walking Bass Series but other than that i have been surfing amazon.com for understanding jazz better. I have thinking of starting this way: Jimmy Amadie's series of books (Harmonic foundation for jazz and popular music + Jazz Improv: How to play and teach it) Levine's theory book and Connecting Chords With Linear Harmony by Bert Ligon. These are some first ones from amazon.com list manias. I dont know jazz theory but have a good grasp on chord theory, modes, voicing... where shud i start? Are the above ok or should i add the aerbersold volumes as well?
