Hip Licks is designed to help players develop fluency in the jazz language by providing mainstream jazz vocabulary (swing/bop/post-bop) that nails the changes and lays great on the horn. Think of Hip Licks as a musical reference book, like a dictionary of great licks in all twelve keys. Need something that will help you sound like a total pro while playing over the most challenging keys, like: B, C# or F# ? Hip Licks is an indispensable resource that can immediately show you how a professional player would approach those tough keys and chord progressions.

- 168 Hip Licks (Vol. 1) / 120 Hip Licks (Vol. 2) - Each lick is unique and customized for each key, based on the best timbre, register and playability on the horn. The C7 lick is different than the B7 lick, which is different than the Bb7 lick, etc.

- Idiomatic Construction - Alto and Tenor read the same written part, while the rhythm section is recorded in two different keys, ensuring that each lick lays perfectly on all saxophones.

- Slow Tempo and Fast Tempo Play-Along CDs are included for both Alto and Tenor - 4 CDs included: 2 Alto CDs and 2 Tenor CDs, providing over four hours of play-along tracks.

- Hip Licks Nail the Most Popular Jazz Chord Progressions

- Modular Design - The licks are self-contained, easily taken out of the book to be used in a wide variety of songs.

- Interactive Call and Response Format - Perfect for ear-training and developing your musical memory. Each lick is played twice in a row on the Play- Along CDs, so you can hear the lick and then immediately play along.

- Twelve Key Approach - Every CD track takes you through all twelve keys.
Hip Licks For Guitar was created to fill a gap in the musical resources available to the aspiring jazz guitarist. Its purpose is to demonstrate the concepts of soloing to those students who know their chords and scales but lack the musical vocabulary to create professional-level solos.

-- Includes Tab Book and CD Play-Along Set.

JAZZ ETUDES

Each volume of Jazz Saxophone Etudes includes twelve etudes and two play-along CDs. Saxophonist Greg Fishman demonstrates each etude on both alto and tenor, backed by a world-class rhythm section featuring pianist Dennis Luxion, bassist Eric Hochberg, and drummer Phil Gratteau.

- Includes rhythm-section-only tracks with extra choruses to practice soloing over the chord progressions.

- The rhythm section is recorded in two different keys, allowing all saxes to read the same written part, ensuring that each etude lays perfectly on all saxophones.

- Written with the idiomatic tendencies of the saxophone in mind, these etudes demonstrate a melodic approach to soloing with authentic jazz vocabulary.

TASTING HARMONY

Tasting Harmony - The chord progression of every song represents a harmonic recipe created by the composer. Tasting Harmony allows you to fully stock your ear with the ingredients needed for each recipe, so you don’t have to substitute water for cream when it’s time to put those ingredients together to bake your harmonic creation.

Sing and play along with vocalist Petra van Nuis and pianist Jeremy Kahn as they take you through a full menu of ear-enriching harmonic flavors. Tasting Harmony was developed to provide a fun approach for all musicians who want to get involved with harmony on a deeper level in a direct and non-theoretical way.
