Another super-groove play-a-long featuring Joey with his trio accompanying you on Blues and some of the greatest standards ever written. Rhythm Section: Joey DeFrancesco (Organ); Paul Bollenback (Guitar); Byron Landham (Drums) Includes: Now's The Time Four On Six The More I See You Mercy, Mercy, Mercy Luch Portion I Fall In Love Too Easily Bye, Bye, Blackbird Gee, Baby Ain't I Good To You Indiana February 14th Anthropology Summertime I'm Getting Sentimental Over You Slow Blues in Bb Obama Nation Notes to the musician: There was a time when I didn't particularly enjoy jazz organ trios. In my teenage years the organ was what I heard in my Methodist church so I associated the instrument with hymns, people singing and church. As jazz evolved and Jimmy Smith and Larry Young entered my jazz record library I learned to love the sound of the Hammond B3 in a jazz setting. I grew up near Louisville, Kentucky and after receiving my driver's license, I would frequent night clubs where often there was an organ trio or quartet playing. On nights when I really felt brave, I would ask to sit in and play a song or two with them. This was part of my early musical bandstand training and it was very important to me. This Volume 123 play-a-long has an outstanding organ trio led by Joey DeFrancesco. Joey, Paul and Byron are Joey's original trio and have played on and off together for many years. I was fortunate to record them on February 14, 2008 at The Jazz Factory in Louisville, Ky., just six weeks before the Jazz Factory closed its doors for good. The trio had played there the night before to a packed house. Some of the songs on this set are on other sets but not in the organ trio format. Usually, when we duplicate a song on a play-a-long we change the tempo or key, or instrumentation and this always gives the rendition a completely different feel. The set opens with "Now's the Time," written by Charlie Parker and has become a standard blues that is probably the most called jam blues of all time. "Four on Six" by Wes Montgomery, is a contrafact written on the chords to Summertime. A contrafact is a new melody written over existing chords. The chords that Wes uses have a lot of ii/V7 substitutes and present a melodic challenge to say the least. "The More I See You" is an old standard with a nice harmonic flow and simple melody. "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy" by Joe Zawinul is his most famous song and has been played and arranged many different ways over the years. The solo section is on two chords which makes it approachable by beginning level jazzers. "Lunch Portion" is an original I wrote for Joey's trio. It's a shuffle and at first, makes you think it's going to be a 12 bar blues but it's not. The last two bars of each chorus take you up to the clouds. One of the prettiest ballads ever written is "I Fall In Love Too Easily." It's a master piece in 16 measures and is taken at a very slow tempo. The old jazz standard "Bye, Bye, Blackbird" shows off the trio's ability to set a groove and keep it. After the first chorus,we substitute some descending ii/V7's over the bridge section to add variety. "Gee Baby, Ain't I Good To You" is a sixteen bar tune with several unusual harmonic twists here and there. It's done very slowly and reminds me of the days when I would go hear organ trios grinding out late night jazz in Louisville or Indianapolis. We decided to do "Indiana" even though it's on other play-a-long sets. Someone on our jazz Forum suggested doing it at a slower tempo so that's what we did. The coda section goes to a Bossa nova feel. The 'February 14th' title comes from the day we recorded this set. It has a great little shuffle feel with a bridge that seems to float up to the sky. "Anthropology" is another tune written by Charlie Parker and is based on rhythm changes. The melody is very notey and is a demonstration of the technical facility "Bird" had on his alto saxophone. "Summertime" is by George Gershwin and may be the most popular American standard ever. For variety we moved this version to the key of C minor and did it at a slow tempo. "I'm Getting Sentimental Over You" has always been a tune jazz musicians loved to play on. The chords move around just enough to keep you on your toes. "Slow Blues" is just that…a very slow blues in G. Need more be said? This CD was recorded while the famous Democratic Presidential primary was taking place in America between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. "Obama-Nation" is a take off on something I saw in the local newspaper’s "letters to the editor" section during that time. The writer said, "If Obama gets elected President it will be an Obamanation." I think they said it in jest. If you like playing jazz, this play-a-long will give you hours of enjoyable opportunities and enhance your musical skills along the way. Jamey Aebersold.

Book and 4 CDs!!! For all instrumentalists wishing to improve their "time", sharpen their harmonic awareness, or just experiment with different rhythm section configurations. The best way to develop ""good time"" is to play with musicians who have good time; musicians like Adam Nussbaum and Jay Anderson. This 4-CD SET includes 15 play-a-long tracks of various tempos and styles based on the changes to well-known standards. Each CD has a different mix, allowing maximum versatility as follows: CD #1 is a split track with bass on one channel and drums on the other. CD #2 is Bass Only on both channels. CD #3 is Drums Only on both channels. CD #4 is Piano on both channels, bass on the left, and drums on the right. Bassists will love playing with drums-only CD. Drummers will love playing with the Bass-only CD. Pianists and Guitarists will enjoy soloing or comping with any of the first three mixes. Horn Players will enjoy playing with any of the CDs. Many jazz groups over the years have had success with pianoless or bassless or drumless groups, such as Gerry Mulligan and Sonny Rollins. Bass and drum accompaniment (without guitar or piano)leads to better hearing, enhanced harmonic awareness, and an overall freer sound. The lack of a comping instrument also allows the mind to concentrate more on playing with a good time feel. This versatile, first-of-its-kind play along is sure to become a favorite.
