Books and Resources for jazz leaners
A book and play-a-long CD or mp3 downloads. Beginning to intermediate.
This book is very practical and easy to learn from. Plenty of practice ideas which you can try immediately with play-a-long recordings (CD or mp3 downloads). On top of that, what I loved about this book is that cheerful words of encouragements appear throughout the book.
For intermediate-to-advanced musicians
The author and jazz pianist Mark Levin shares extensive and in-depths information about jazz piano. Going thru even just a first few chapters is a huge learning and gets you started on jazz piano (like it did for me). Read patiently, go over examples, and practice a list of suggested songs while applying the new skills and concepts that Mr. Levin presents in each chapter. Note: I don't recommend this book for those who are new to musical notations and theory. I suggest that you find a lighter read.
