25 jazz etudes is a book aimed at intermediate jazz students wanting something authentic to play over well known jazz standards.

It has long been recognised that to develop jazz vocabulary we should copy the masters of the music but what if our favourite player is simply too advanced for where we currently are in our musical development?

The 25 jazz etudes have been created with limited tricky passages, no high sustained playing but still uses great, authentic vocabulary.
Check out the demo.
