Hal Leonard How To Play From A Real Book

Textbook

Everyone should be able to get a piece of the Real Book on the piano, guitar or whatever: That is precisely the goal of this book. Many different sub-regions such as, for example, Analysis, musical understanding and interpretation. You learn elements like form analysis, harmonics, the free addition of introductions, interpretation of the theme, improvisation over the form, the construction of bass lines, voice guidance in the chords, chord substitution and much more. Through this theoretical approach, many aspects of the interpretation are treated either solo or in the ensemble, and at the same time their own possibilities and the musical understanding are significantly expanded. The Real Book leaves many possibilities for interpretation of the pieces. With "How to play from a Real Book" you get a wide range of musical tools, which can be used directly.

How to play from a Real Book
14.10.2015
This is a very helpful book for any jazz musician, may it be brass or rhythm player. It thoroughly explains what is found on a jazz lead sheet and how to understand the information presented to you in a Real Book.
All in all, it's a textbook that covers the stuff you'd learn in music high school. Though, it fails to present the importance of ear training when learning a jazz tune.

Bonnes informations mais trop rapide
Thierry L. 919, 26.01.2016
J'ai déjà un bouquin de quelques centaines de pages sur le piano jazz.
J'ai acheté ce livre comme compagnon de mon Real Book parce que je souhaitais pouvoir démarrer rapidement sur les morceaux les plus simples.

L'Anglais utilisé est simple.

Avantage : beaucoup d'informations présentes.

Inconvénient : les explications sont courtes ; je les ai trouvé bonnes pour réviser ce que je savais déjà mais trop rapides pour que j'apprenne du nouveau.

Ça me paraît donc être un bon memento.

Nice

For me as a classical musician this is a good tool to help me become a better, "broader" musician. I do recommend it if you want to become better at reading and playing jazz.
