You're going to love this! When I first started out on this piano journey of mine, I scoured local bookstores, music stores, and libraries for information that would allow me to express myself freely at the piano.

Well, one of the first things I came across was something by Jamey Aebersold.

You see, Jamey brilliantly put down in one slim volume almost everything a modern piano player needs to get started in terms of theory. His scale syllabus is really something special and explains the modes, and scales in a way that you'll really appreciate.

And here's the best news of all. He's giving away his entire groundbreaking book for free! I couldn't believe it myself. But it's true nonetheless.

Visit http://aebersold.com/Merchant2/merchant...._Code=_HANDBOOK to go to his download page where you'll see the book arranged by chapters. I highly suggest you take a look at ALL this material for it's extremely useful!

This is not the correct cover. That is the cover for "HOW TO PLAY JAZZ & IMPROVISE", sold here:

But at the link you wrote the material is indeed free.

Hi! Thanks so much for posting this! But The link for the free book no longer works, but I was also helping you could tell me the ACTUAL name of the free book, seeing as the cover is apparently inaccurate, you said that the free book was quite good, so I would be quite happy to order it and pay for it if so. I'm just about to order a bunch of other Jamey Aebersold books, but if the one you mention is so good, I would really appreciate the name. Thanks so much again for this useful post ! grin

I found a link to a Free Jamey Aebersold jazz book.
Free Jamey Aebersold Jazz Book pdf.
For years, Jamey has given away a "red" book called the "Jazz Handbook" FREE OF CHARGE. This resource is great for jazz fans and students of all levels.

This amazing FREE book is available for download!

I also posted a link to this page on my website:

free is always good

i was skeptical at first figuring that whatever they were giving away must not be worth much but from the first section on soloing i was reading advice that I needed to hear

The first link to my post for the free jazz book
is still active, however,
I have removed the link for the book on my website,
due to hackers.
