Description: Jimmy Raney, one of jazz Dom’s most inventive guitarists, has written ten charts to standards for tenor sax, flute, clarinet and guitar plus bass and drums. This album is designed to give the student guitarist valuable practice in the area of ensemble playing as well as improvising. Professionals will also love it for enjoyment and practice. For those new to improvisational techniques, example solos have been provided for a jumping-off point for embellishing the written lead part. A master class in jazz technique--Jack Wilkins demonstrates!
