The Berklee Book Of Jazz Harmony

(Berklee Guide). Learn jazz harmony, as taught at Berklee College of Music. This text provides a strong foundation in harmonic principles, supporting further study in jazz composition, arranging, and improvisation. It covers basic chord types and their tensions, with practical demonstrations of how they are used in characteristic jazz contexts and an accompanying recording that lets you hear how they can be applied. The price of this book includes access to audio tracks online, for download or streaming, using the unique code inside the book. The audio features PLAYBACK+, a multi-functional audio player that allows you to slow down audio without changing pitch, set loop points, change keys, and pan left or right available exclusively from Hal Leonard.ReviewWhen future beings unearth the artifacts of our culture, The Berklee Book of Jazz Harmony will stand out as the most complete summary of modern diatonic harmony used in jazz and popular music of this era. This book is detailed, sophisticated, and surprisingly hip. I especially enjoyed the chapter on the blues as well as how the authors noted the effect of beat placement on harmonic choices. This sentence struck me: 'We can hear and feel a chord operating one way when it arrives, but our interpretation of that chord can also adjust retroactively.' The book is replete with similar descriptions giving this complicated subject a life of its own, beyond the usual mathematics and terminology. --Dave LiebmanThe Berklee Book of Jazz Harmony is eminently readable and user-friendly. The authors present the principles of jazz harmony and chord scale theory clearly and invitingly. --Keith Waters, jazz pianist, theorist and author of The Studio Recordings of the Miles Davis Quintet, 1965 68Clear, thorough, and practical, The Berklee Book of Jazz Harmony is indeed a welcome key to understanding not only the richness and order of jazz harmony, but also the many musical styles deeply touched by jazz harmony's broad influence. --Michael Rendish, Founding Harmony Chair, Berklee College of Music
