" ... Comping for an imaginary soloist, as is done on the Aebersold play-a-long recordings, can be a tricky business. It is ... easy for the comping to turn into a piano chord solo which is far too busy and cluttered up rhythmically or melodically. The soloist is left with no space in which to play. The goal [is] to supply the harmony and play something that feels good so that any soloist will be comfortable playing with the prerecorded rhythm accompaniment. The problem is that the element of interaction is removed. Since there is no soloist playing as the track is recorded, there is no possibility of reacting to rhythmic or harmonic elements that [one] might employ. [Dan Haerle's] approach is to comp as though [he] were an arranger creating a sax or trombone background behind a solo in a jazz band chart ... A good background would generally have some melodic interest (though restrained) and would sound the harmony to support the solo. Also, there would be enough rhythmic life in it to inject some energy into the music and hopefully stimulate the soloist ..."--Dan Haerle.

This collection of recorded and transcribed jazz piano arrangements is more than just a play-along compilation. It allows a student to observe in detail how an accomplished jazz pianist plays with a group, creates solos and accompaniments ("comping"), and constructs jazz harmonic treatments through chord substitutions and special voicings. Noreen Grey Lienhard, an award-winning jazz pianist and one of the most widely published jazz educators, has created this book and compact disc collection of ten truly wonderful jazz standards in ballad, Latin, and up-tempo settings. She has meticulously transcribed each of her solos and chord voicings so that students may, through analysis, better understand the art of piano jazz while immersing themselves in a proper jazz environment. In addition to the transcribed solos, this volume contains a typical lead sheet styled section for all ten tunes, often with Noreen's suggested chord voicings. CD 1 features Noreen as pianist with instrumental back-up. CD 2 eliminates the solo piano track. As with all books in this series, it includes a unique lay-flat binding to help keep the music open on the music stand. Titles: Body and Soul * A Day In The Life of a Fool * I Got Rhythm * I Love You * I Only Have Eyes For You * I'll Be Seeing You * I'll See You Again * Invitation * On Green Dolphin Street * Summertime.
