An entertaining and instructive collection 17 janvier 2003
Par Michael J. Edelman - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book is essentially an annotated and expanded collection of columns originally published in Bass Player magazine. As such, it's more of a disconnected set of essays than a narrative; the discussion of significant bass players is somewhat spotty, and doesn't go into great detail on their music and style in the way that (for example" Todd Coolman's "The Bass Tradition" does. But it's still both entertaining and educational. The chapters, being mostly self-contained, can be read at random as the reader's interest dictates.
The first section of the book is primarily short snapshots of significant bassists, each being composed of a short biography accompanied by brief musical examples. The latter section- almost an appendix- consists of longer examples of styles and techniques. It's not really a method book, but it does offer some insight into styles and harmonic and rhythmic concepts for the beginning or intermediate jazz bassists. The accompanying CD helps illustrate the musical examples for those whose reading and playing technique are at a more basic stage.
All in all, a very entertaining and useful book for jazz bassists of all abilities, and an excellent choice for bedside reading.

Good for electric or upright 22 juillet 2005
Par THX1138b - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I'll chime in with the previous review. A loose collection of essays with helpful information for aspiring jazz bassists.

The biographical information is almost incidental and a getting a bit dated. And there are some rather unnecssary editorial essays at the end telling us what it means to be a good bass player.

But those are just quibbles. The musical examples and appended information are what make the book worthwhile. I wouldn't want this to be my primary source for learning jazz bass, but it's fun browse, a useful reference and a good book to learn some new lines and pick up some basic tips. It's a book to mine for ideas.

And don't walk away from this one because you play electric. In fact, the information presented and the perspective this book takes makes this valuable for the electric bass player.

Oh and by the way, no tab on the printed music. A good thing IMHO. Read the music, stay off the crutch.

great for learning bass history as well as the bass 10 janvier 2006
Par bobdc - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The format of self-contained essays makes the book great for browsing. Someone just getting to know the jazz bass will be hearing a lot of names listed as important bass players (and seeing their names on liner notes), and you can find a nice summary of the context and contribution of each of these guys in this book.

The parts in the book about actually playing make it a good companion to a more methodical bass method book, with transcriptions of great players' solos as well as more exercise-oriented pieces developed by Goldsby to help your technique.

The Best Jazz Bass Compendium, Period! 4 juin 2006
Par P. Rhode - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
OK, if your're like me (HighSierraBassPlayer), you're desparately seeking books, DVD's and cd's with tons of blues and jazz progressions. The material out there is really pretty thin (or maybe I'm just never satisfied like my chronic case of G.A.S. (gear acquisition syndrome). John Goldby's Jazz Bass Handbook is the best source for jazz theory and an excellent resource for the history of jazz as well. After all, most of the songs we practice and perform on today have their beginnings in jazz and blues from the founding fathers. I have gained so much respect and awe for these pioneers of jazz and the blues, and this book is by far the best jazz compendium on the musical market today. I hope someone produces a blues compendium as concise and full of examples as this book does. The CD is also excellent, although I wish it carried all the examples in the book. But that make me work even harder to, as one of the forefathers of jazz offers in the book, "to imitate, assimilate, and innovate." That pretty much describes how bass players like me strive to be better, and this text works perfect. A higest must have from HighSierraBassPlayer!

A must-have for the jazz bassist at any level 6 août 2006
Par James M. Randorff - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I'll make this short and sweet... if you want a well-lead, chronological walk through the history of jazz bassists, complete with tons of musical examples, phenomenal sound clips, and enough recording references to keep you busy listening and copying grooves until rapture, this is the book for you. Buy it!
