Review – Hal Leonard Jazz Session Trainer Series Jazz Session C Edition

The Hal Leonard Jazz Session Trainer Series Jazz Session C Edition while not your typical bass book, only available in treble clef at this time, is still a very essential collection of material especially for bass.

The book starts out talking about jazz jam session and proper etiquette, then gets deep into the details of what you can do to improve performing in the jazz genre. Chord and scale relations are covered along with exercises to improve your chops with chord changes.

There are 12 etudes covering jazz styles including ballads, swing, and Latin feels. The etudes are a lesson in soloing in themselves and will open you to more ideas.

As bass players, we are always looking to add new licks to our arsenal and chapter five covers that with licks and short phrases that are inspired by jazz greats, covering single major and minor chords, dominant chords, the II-V-I progression and more. Things don’t stop there! Intros and endings are covered as well as practice tips. Finishing things off is a collection of the fifty most popular and frequently performed Jazz tunes including, “All of Me”, “Cherokee”, “I Got Rhythm”, “Stella by Starlight”, and “Tune-Up” just to name a few.

Hal Leonard Jazz Session Trainer Series Jazz Session C Edition is written in notation and also has accompanying tracks that can be downloaded from the Hal Leonard library.
