This book/CD set presents a clear, comprehensive, one-step-at-a-time method for learning how to accompany an improvised jazz solo. As a sequel to Hal Crook’s text "How to Improvise", "How to Comp" offers precise explanations, practical exercises, recorded musical examples, four play-along tracks, and daily practice routines. "How to Comp" organizes a vast amount of information that helped to make the author’s previous work "a major contribution to jazz pedagogy". "How to Comp" is primarily for intermediate through advanced level players of harmonic instruments, e.g. piano (keyboard), guitar and vibraphone. However, drummers, bassists and horn players can also benefit from its study.
