Introducing The Jazz Improvisation Workshop
Frank Mantooth and Hal Leonard Corporation have published an exciting new improvisation method
designed for all levels of players - from the absolute beginner to the experienced performer.
Instructional volumes can be used individually or in a group/classroom environment. Play-along
song collections feature musical variety, top-notch rhythm section accompaniment, great tunes,
and performance of each head as well as choruses for improvisation. Each book includes a
play-along CD. All titles in the series are available for C, B, E, and Bass Clef instruments.
