Sinopse Original:

Play jazz piano with new facility and expression as Ray Santisi, one of the most revered educators at the Berklee College of Music - and mentor to Keith Jarrett, Diana Krall, Joe Zawinul, and thousands of others - reveals the pedagogy at the core of Berklee's jazz piano curriculum. From beginning through advanced levels, Berklee Jazz Piano maps the school's curriculum: a unique blend of theory and application that gives you a deep, practical understanding of how to play jazz. Concepts are illustrated by the accompanying practice CD, where you'll hear how one of the great jazz pianists and educators of our time applies these concepts to both jazz standards and original compositions, and how you can do the same.

You will learn:

.Jazz chords and their characteristic tension substitutions, in many voicings and configurations
.Modes and scales common in jazz
.Techniques for comping, developing bass lines, harmonizing melodies, melodizing harmonies, and improvisation
.Practice techniques for committing these concepts to your muscle memory
.Variations for solo and ensemble playing
.Advanced concepts, such as rhythmic displacement, approach-chord harmonization, and jazz counterpoint

An internationally known jazz pianist, Santisi has performed alongside legends Charlie Parker, Stan Getz, Mel Torme, Irene Kral, Natalie Cole, and others, and appeared on many major-label recordings.

Among other honors, he has received grants and awards from the National Endowment for the Arts for both performance and composition.

"This is the best piano book I ever encountered! It contains so much information for any musician at any level to become a great improviser. I am so impressed and moved by the fact that Ray Santisi has been saving these important ideas and methods over decades. Only Ray could come up with a book like this, because he is not only a great educator, but he also is one of the best musicians in the world. This is a true treasure for so many musicians! And I am so honored to be one of Ray's students."

Makoto Ozone, Pianist/Composer

"I have known Ray Santisi since I was a teenager in Boston. He would invite me to sit in with the Herb Pomeroy Sextet. He has taught many aspiring jazz musicians for many years at Berklee. This all-encompassing book will be invaluable to musicians and teachers alike who pursue jazz improvisation."

Steven Kuhn, Pianist/Composer/Teacher

"I have been aware of Mr. Santisi's virtuosity as a pianist for many decades. Now he has applied his formidable knowledge and experience to a carefully presented analytical approach to aid in developing the readers technical facility, while encouraging and preserving the unique musical essence and imagination of the individual."

George Russell, composer, author of George Russell's Lydian Chromatic Concept of Tonal Organization
