Swing into Christmas (Play Along)

Play Along Swing into Christmas
A Christmas collection that is really hip and fun to play, Swing Into Christmas has been tailored to provide a unique opportunity for the instrumentalist exploring jazz to 'join' with a first-rate Jazz combo. The rhythm section was recorded 'live' and is a great motivation for student practice time. The musicians involved (Richard Iacona - Piano, Andy Fusco - Alto Saxophone, Madeline Kole - Bass and Scott Neuman - Drums) are all experienced, well-known professionals. The CD contains two versions of each song. One includes a performance of the melody (on alto saxophone) with the combo and the other consists of the rhythm section by itself. Designed with the younger, less experienced player in mind, Swing Into Christmas, will encourage the Jazz novice to learn how to improvise by 'playing around' the melody, and examples of this technique are included in the repeat section of each selection. Styles vary from standard swing, to Latin Rock and ballad style.
