About this title


Charlie Parker was arguably one of the most influential jazz musicians to have ever lived. This text presents numerous jazz lines in Charlie's style, grouped by their application in a given harmonic content. Students will learn to connect lines to play over ii-V-I progressions, turnarounds and other harmonic frameworks. To facilitate proficiency in all twelve keys, each section of the book has a chordal play-along that modulates around the circle of fourths. Some of the techniques used in the Charlie Parker style will also be discussed with examples provided. This will help musicians analyze each of the ideas presented, further ensuring their mastery.

About the Author:

Corey Christiansen began playing the guitar at the age of five. He studied with his father, Mike Christiansen, (a seasoned performer, writer, and educator at Utah State University) until he finished his bachelor degree. While at Utah State University, Corey received many honors and awards including the outstanding music student award and outstanding guitarist. The Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival awarded Corey with outstanding big band guitarist in 1995 and outstanding solo guitarist in 1995 and 1996. Seeking a masters degree in jazz performance, Corey sought out renowned jazz guitar educator, Jack Petersen and began studies as a graduate teaching assistant at the University of South Florida. He received his masters degree in jazz performance in the spring of 1999. Jack Petersen retired that same year and Corey was hired to take his place as the adjunct guitar instructor. While teaching at the University of South Florida, Corey worked with the jazz guitar students and directed many of the jazz combos. Corey left USF to pursue a career at Mel Bay Publications, Inc. as their guitar editor. Corey has a musical background covering many styles of music including jazz, blues, classical, bluegrass, folk, rock and popular music. This quality has enabled him to perform in a number of different settings. As the guitar editor at Mel Bay Publications, Inc., Corey is available to do clinics on various guitar related subjects at schools and music stores around the country.
