• graded tests as preparation for the jazz trombone exams • compositions that introduce the melodic and harmonic vocabulary of jazz • an impressive range of styles, in swing or straight 8s, using rock, Latin or swing grooves • question-and-answer tests with written piano accompaniments, to practise improvising in time • a helpful description of each test, its objectives and what the examiner is looking for • the quick studies accommodate students working by ear or at sight • exemplar tests from this book are included on the CD for each Level/Grade
"If you are an ordinary parent trying to help your child prepare with jazz examinations, do not buy this book. Unlike the ordinary aural tests there is no option to buy with CD. This is disappointing given the level of jazz fluency required to make these tests meaningful. Come on ABRSM - the jazz syllabus is justly popular but the lack of supporting CD material means that preparing these tests becomes much harder."
