I enjoyed playing around on my piano with ESSENTIAL JAZZ LINES IN THE STYLE OF BILL EVANS, and the accompanying play-along CD was both enjoyable and instructive. This instruction book also contains 3 pages of blank music for those who wish to write down variations of their own, or to experiment with phrasing.
There is a section about Bill Evans who died in 1980. Another section discusses the language of jazz and there are enjoyable sections on scales including Be-Bop scales, targeting, minor chord vamps, one measure ii-V, play alongs which include short ii-V vamps and moving in fourths, turnarounds, and play along recordings. The information on Be-Bop is invaluable.
Corey Christiansen began playing guitar at age five and Per Danielsson started piano at age nine. Per can be reached for further information at
