Join Julio Appling for an in-depth discussion in this video Ready-made play-along resources, part of Real Books and Digital Accompaniment Tools for Musicians.
- In addition to digital tools…for creating play-along tracks,…we should also take a look at the existing resources…for ready-made play-along tracks.…I'll provide a brief but by no means exhaustive overview…of a few popular resources for play-along recordings.…Due to the strong emphasis on improvisation,…and common expectation for mastering the standard…songbook tunes, jazz is the most representative…of these tools, though other popular genres such…as bluegrass, latin, classical,…and blues are represented as well.…
You won't venture far into the world…of jazz play-along resources without hearing the name…Jamey Abersold.…Abersold is a long-time jazz educator,…who released a popular series of high-quality recording sets…designed for students of jazz improvisation.…Over time, his series has expanded beyond jazz…to holiday, classical, gospel, and latin genres.…Certain specialized volumes include slowed down versions,…starter series, and music minus one arrangements,…which allow the musician to provide the missing voice…
