“A young customer came in and stumbled over to our magazine rack and picked an issue of Bass Player. He flipped through for a few seconds then came to the counter and asked if we had an amp that was reviewed in that issue. The amp was a Roland Bass Cube 30, which we also had in stock. The magazine praised the amp quite nicely and our customer made up his mind in a hurry. We sold the amp to him on the spot for $295. Bass Player did a nice job of talking the amp up and persuading our rocker to buy it. We made a nice clean quick sale for $295 thanks to a great review by Bass Player.” —Northern Lights Music, Littleton, NH

VOCAL Gateway to French Mélodies

Ed. John Glenn Paton Gateway to French Mélodies leads us into a fragrant garden of poetry and

music that is both passionate and refined. Each song brings to life one of the great themes of French art—love, nature, the purpose of life—with sensuous beauty, beguiling grace, and often with humor. Understanding what you sing is the basic concept of the Gateway series. Each lyric is translated, both word-by-word and in readable English. The singer can learn the song with confidence, as obscure points of phonetics, grammar and interpretation are made clear. The cultural context of each song is illuminated, along with its place in the life and works of the composer. Many of the marvelous songs found here have been out of print for more than a century and a few are published here for the very first time.

Go beyond the typical play-along with Alfred’s Jazz Play-Along series, an innovative approach to teaching improvisation! Each tune has specific improvisation tips and suggestions with a sample solo that makes learning how to improv easier. The play-along tracks allow a soloist or group to learn and perform with the rhythm section only. Play-alongs have never been more complete! • Parts for C, B-Flat, E-Flat, and bass clef instruments • Separate book for rhythm section instruments • Written-out and recorded solo examples • Plenty of choruses for soloing opportunities • Specific tips and suggestions for each tune • CD with demo and play-along tracks recorded by top musicians
