iImprov - Bebop

    DOWNLOAD  $3.99



    This latest in the iImprov series from Jazz Apps Mobile is designed to help take the mystery out of the language of Bebop. There are 9 comprehensive lessons and 8 JAM- A-longs.

    Each lesson contains a detailed explanation as well as exercises, transposable notation and tempo-adjustable audio examples. Many of the concepts are also demoed by saxophonist Tony Bray at the end of the lessons.

    The topics covered include:
    - How to fully realize the bebop scale through strategic placement of half steps to ultimately include all twelve notes of the chromatic scale while maintaining appropriate chord colors.
    - How to develop longer phrases.
    - Turnarounds and chord substitutions. (Includes tempo adjustable examples that loop and transpose for practicing over.)
    - A breakdown of the ʻConfirmationʼ sequence. - Various approaches to playing over ʻI Got Rhythmʼ changes.

    JAM-A-longs include individually created files for each key. Each will loop indefinitely, all keys are covered and tempos are adjustable. The included JAM-A-longs are:
    - V7
    - II V I
    - I Got Rhythm 1
    - I Got Rhythm 2
    - Confirmation Sequence
    - Turnaround 1
    - Turnaround 2
    - Turnaround 3

    As with other other Jazz Apps Mobile apps, you can set the notation clef and the overall transposition for your specific instrument and there is balance control for the JAM-A-Longs.

    Happy Practicing!
