I ntrod uction

These duets, with accompanying CD, are designed to provide instrumentalists of all ages an opportunity to play music in a variety of jazz styles. The chord progressions have been patterned after the Blues, standard songs like "All The Things You Are," Body and Soul," "Stella by Starlight:' I've Got Rhythm," etc. Some of the duets are based on chord progression of tunes such as "Lady Bird:' "Yardbird Suite:' "Caribe," "Tune Up" and "Park Ave. Petite" written by such jazz performers as Charlie Parker, Wes Montgomery, Miles Davis and Benny Golson. They have been written in a way that provides great flexibility in their use.

The instrumentation and personnel on the CD are as follows:

B~ ClarineVB~ Tenor Saxophone Guitar

String Bass

Drums

John LaPorta Rick Peckham Christian Bausch Joe Hunt

The CD was designed so the duets can be heard in their entirety or used in play-along situations. Open sections with rhythm section comping provide abundant opportunity for improvisation.

These books are published for the following instruments:

C Treble (Concert) B~

E~

C Bass

Flute, Guitar, Violin, Vibraphone and Conductor Trumpets, Tenor Saxophone and Clarinet

Alto Saxophone, Baritone Saxophone Trombone, Acoustical and Electric Bass

Additional combinations can be made by using pairs of the above books. Each tune is in the same concert key in each book with transpositions being made to match the key of each particular instrument. For example, an alto saxophone player and trombone player desiring to play duets together could do so by having the Alto play the top from the B book while the Trombone plays the bottom line from the C bass book. They could also reverse parts if they so desire. This could be done with any combination.

Chord symbols are provided for those who wish to improvise and space is provided on the CD for that purpose. The duets can also be performed with a live rhythm section (Piano, Guitar, Bass, Drums). The Piano, Guitar and Bass players will have to read the chord symbols in concert pitch to accompany the duet instruments. Chord symbols in concert pitch are provided in the C Treble and C Bass Clef books. Procedures for extending each of the tunes for improvisation purposes can be found with each tune.

A thorough reading of the Practice/Rehearsal Procedures section that follows will give further insight as to the various ways these books and accompanying CD can best be used.

PRACTICE/REHEARSAL PROCEDURES

The music in this text and on this CD offer a number of possible uses. A detailed explanation of the various methods for use of the Jazz Duets follows.

CD FORMAT

The CD features performances of the duets for listening purposes, "Music Minus One Play-Along" attributes and sections for improvisation. Do the following for full use of these possibilities.

For complete performances of the duets, maintain the balance knob in the upright posltlon. By doing this, you will hear the A parts played by clarinet or tenor saxophone and the B parts by guitar with bass and drum accompaniment.

For play-along purposes, turn the balance knob to the left or the right. This will remove one of the parts so you can play that part along with the recording.

The rhythm section, guitar, bass and drums, have been recorded so that you will be able to improvise in the solo section regardless of the position of your balance knob.

SOLO PRACTICE PROCEDURES

Listen to the complete recorded version of the duet you wish to practice. Focus on the A line. Practice the A line on your own. For sight-reading purposes, pick tempos that will allow you to play through the A line without stopping.

Work out trouble spots, pay attention to dynamics, articulation marks, accents and ghost notes, etc.

When you are ready to play it at the tempo on the recording, set your CD player so that you can play the A line in unison with the part on the record.

Note: Learn to play together with the tape so that your part

and the part on the record are as one.

Turn the balance knob so that you can hear the B line and play the A line with it.

Read the Improvisation Format at the bottom of the page and play through the entire duet improvising in the solo sections.

Duplicate the above procedures when working on the B line.

DUET PRACTICE PROCEDURES

1. Two individuals playing like instruments can derive a great deal of enjoyment in playing these duets together. (Only one book and CD is necessary for this.)

Listen to the complete recorded version of the duet you wish to learn with the balance knob centered. Focus on both A and B lines.

Practice the A and B lines on your own. Play through the entire A section together until it can be performed with accuracy. Do the same with the B section. (Unison playing helps define rhythmic and melodic shape as well as gain insight as to musical content in both parts.) Divide - one player plays A while the other plays B. Reverse parts.

Play both parts along with the record and try to blend in with them.

Read the Improvisation Format at the bottom of the page, divide the solo section and play along with the entire duet.

Note: These duets can also be played by unlike instruments which sound the

same pitch when reading - piano and vibes, violin and flute, flute and guitar etc. (Guitar sounds an octave lower than written but this has been considered and should not be a problem.

2. Two playing instruments which sound different pitches when reading the same note can also play the duets in the same manner as above, provided that they use books corresponding to their instrument, i.e. - flute must use the C treble clef book while B~ tenor saxophone must use the B~ book.

SOLO OR DUO WITH RHYTHM SECTION

Any melody instrument can play A section of any of the jazz duets with a rhythm section (piano/guitar, bass and drums) as long as the proper books are used. If necessary, copy the chord symbols (from the C books) for the bass and guitar and allow the drummer to see your part so that he or she can keep track of the form of the duet being played.

Note: Follow the instructions provided for improvising that accompany each jazz duet.

Any two instruments can play the A and B parts with rhythm sections by following the instructions provided for improvising with each jazz duet.

Note: When two or more soloists are involved, it will be necessary to pre-determine the order of soloists.

Note: If unlike instruments are involved, it will be necessary to acquire a set of C trebleclef, C bass clef, B~ and E~ books.

REHEARSAL PROCEDURES FOR JAZZ WORKCSHOP

1. Any combination of melody instruments without rhythm section can be used (6 to 10 would be the norm.) The rehearsal procedure recommended is as follows:

(a) Listen to the complete recorded version of the duet you wish to learn with the balance knob centered. Focus on both A and B lines.

(b) Turn the balance knob so you can listen to the A line alone, then turn it in the opposite direction to hear the B line by itself.

(c) All instruments sight-read through the A section then through the B section in unison.

(d) Work on trouble spots - then perform it throughout.

(e) Divide the instruments equally into two sections - one playing the A section while the other group plays the B section.

(f) Work on trouble spots - then perform it throughout.

(g) Reverse parts, work on trouble spots - then perform it throughout.

2. Any combination of melody instruments with rhythm section can be used (2 to 4 melody instruments with Rhythm section would be average). Work on thematic material in much the same manner as directed above. Also, using the CD as a guide, work on rhythm section problems such as developing a good group time sense, bass lines, piano/guitar comping, etc,

(a) Follow the procedures suggested for extended improvising that accompany each jazz duet.

Note: If you have piano and guitar, avoid comping problems by having them not play backgrounds for soloists at the same time.
