Based upon the Berklee Jazz Composition and Arranging Curriculum, this fully comprehensive guide covers all aspects of writing effective and inventive Jazz compositions.

A culmination of Profesor Ted Pease's twenty-five years of eaching jazz Composition at Berklee College of Music.
When you think of great jazz composers, who comes to mind? Perhaps Duke Ellington, Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonious Monk, Charles Mingos, Gil Evans, Thad Jorres, or Bob Brookmeyer. This book is about what they (and many others) do, and how they do it so well.
Jazz composition has evolved finto a disciplined art that often evidences great emotional depth and breadth of sophistication. In Jazz Composition: Theory and Practice, Berklee College of Music Profesor Ted Pease demystifies the proceses involved in eomposing tones as well as episodic and extended jazz works.
Jazz Composition: Theory and Practice will help you to:
- Improve your writing in all jazz styles-from blues to fusion-with effective approaches to melody-writing, such as repetition, sequence, motivic transformation, and embellishment
- Create great melodies built on intervallic patterns, guide tonelines, compound unes, antecedent/consequent phrasing, and melodic tension
- Learn to think creatively when working with tonal and modal harmony, covering such harmonic techniques as inversions, pedal point, constant structures, and reharmon i zation
- Arrange and format all parts of song form, including intros, interludes and endings, and backgrounds
- Apply what you have learned to writing for jazz ensembles of any size from solo piano to quartet or quintet, and from saxophone section to big band
Numerous writing exercises are included to help improve the melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic effectiveness of your jazz compositions. Additionally, al] compositional elements are reinforced with listening examples on the included audio, where, among other things, you will benefit from a guided listening tour of an estire extended jazz work, with detailed annotation by the composer/author.
