Develop your “jazz chops” with our fun and challenging Dixieland Play-along books

They’re a great workout, they’re fun, and they’re full of jazz patterns.
Each book contains classic dixieland tunes including “When The Saints”, “Down By The Riverside”, and “Buddy Bolden’s Blues”, with each tune containing a couple of jazzed up melodies and notated improvisation type solos (with chords provided in case you want to try improvising yourself). To make it a bit more “real life”, we’ve included backing tracks recorded by live jazz musicians including banjo, piano, double bass, and drums.

Each instrument is available in easy and medium/advanced versions. Whilst the tunes in each book are essentially the same, the melodies are simplified in the easy versions, and the solo sections are different and much trickier in the med/advanced books.

Buy two books of your instrument and save money! See our two book bundles below to take advantage of this offer.

Like to hear the parts that you’re playing to help you along? Each book has available a set of mp3’s containing the lead line played on its respective instrument for just $2. (click on the book and you’ll see a link to these for you to have the option to purchase).

“The professional backing tracks and trumpet demonstrations make for enjoyable listening and valuable instruction. The cost for this first class material is a fraction of competitor’s products. ”
