Product Details


The Essence of Bebop is the new series by critically acclaimed New York saxophonist Jim Snidero. The Essence of Bebop reveals the heart and soul of this groundbreaking jazz style and is the first real "manual" for mastering bebop. The 10 enjoyable-to-play studies are inspired by Miles Davis, Charlie Parker, Hank Mobley, Horace Silver, Dizzy Gillespie and many other important musicians, offering a unique basis for study and analysis. Historical insights as well as recommended listening and reading make this edition an indispensable part of jazz education.

“But what if you aren’t a student or a professional? The Essence of Bebop still has immense value to those interested in bebop and hard bop. By encouraging readers to understand the music’s intent, slow down their listening, and focus on the swinging, the series can help a jazz newcomer dig this cerebral, often pulse-pounding music.” - Morgan Enos, Discogs
