If you've ever wanted to check out some modern approaches to Jazz piano playing, this is the program for you. The music in the Modern Jazz Pianist encompasses most of the stylistic approaches from the Bill Evans era to the present.
All the pieces were composed and performed by world-renowned artists, Renee Rosnes, Brad Turner, Miles Black and Ron Johnston and most have been recorded on their various CDs. For example, the 15 tunes performed and composed by New York pianist Renee Rosnes (published by Second Floor Music) are all available on her many CDs (on the Blue Note, EMI, Criss Cross and Concord labels), including her latest, which features Jack DeJohnette, Christian McBride and Chris Potter. As well as leading her own very successful quartet, Renee has toured with Joe Henderson, Wayne Shorter, James Moody, Bobby Hutcherson, and J.J. Johnson.
The Modern Jazz Pianist features 50 MIDI performances in solo, duo and trio formats. Elements of style found in the playing of such pianists as Herbie Hancock, Kenny Kirkland, Cedar Walton, Richie Beirach and others are represented. Chord symbols, as supplied by the composer, are included. Most of the tunes are trio performances with piano, bass and drums. On-screen notation and Keyboard display are featured.
