Progressive Jazz Double Bass Repertoire (2017-2019)

Discussion in 'Music [DB]' started by Robert Sabin, Oct 9, 2019.

  1. Hi all-

    I have a new book of jazz bass transcriptions out today and it's free to download.

    Progressive Jazz Bass Repertoire is the first part of an annually updated collection, containing 260 pages of basslines, melodies, and solos transcribed over two years of teaching bass and jazz transcription at the Manhattan School of Music Precollege. The text includes pieces recorded by the pioneers of modern jazz bass playing, suitable for a variety of experience levels. Featuring:

    - 100+ parts transcribed from historically significant recordings

    - Excerpts of various lengths appropriate to all experience levels

    - Separate sections for blues, melodies, basslines, and solo transcriptions

    - Piano, drum, and horn transcriptions to encourage aural, keyboard, rhythm and listening skills

    - Arrangements for solo, duo, and/or trio performance



    Please share to all those who would be interested!
