These historic recordings of standards were made at Judson Hall in Manhattan in 1951 and feature, literally, legends in jazz. Beautiful renditions of some of the finest songs of the 20th century. These backgrounds feature accompaniments by such players as Nat Pierce and Don Abney (piano): Barry Galbraith and Jimmy Raney (guitar): Milt Hinton and Oscar Pettiford (bass): and Osie Johnson and Kenny Clarke (drums). Classic recordings featuring a stupendous collection of great songs including April in Paris, The Man I Love, and Embraceable You, and many more. Includes sheet music for E-flat, B-flat and Bass Clef instruments. The pristine digital transfers of the original recordings put you right there with these jazz immortals! And weve included several of the up-tempo songs in slow-tempo accompaniment versions as well, to help you get up to speed.
Includes a high-quality printed music book with parts for B-flat, E-flat and bass-clef instruments: and two compact discs featuring each piece performed with soloist, then again with accompaniments only, minus the soloist: and selected accompaniments in a slow-tempo practice version.
