Tilmann Dehnhard composed this collection of original pieces whilst working with classically trained flautists who wanted to play jazz. He addresses such questions as: How can I play melodies over chord progressions? What style of articulation should I use to make sure the music grooves? Each piece on the CD is presented in three versions: two full recordings at differing tempi for playing-along and a version providing the accompaniment only for playing-along with full confidence. Notes and explanations are provided on symbols commonly found in jazz notation, swing rhythm, off-beat articulation and other conventions often encountered in the playing of jazz.
