The Lineage of Modern Jazz Piano – print edition
I helped Richie Beirach gather his laser-sharp jazz insights on the evolution of jazz piano, and organize them into this book. Richie can articulate probably better than anyone alive about jazz piano. Richie talks history, iconic albums, interesting stories, first-hand conversations and how to get better as a musician. Read it in a couple of hours. Read it over a lifetime.
Knowing more about the evolution of jazz piano can make you a more perceptive and capable musician on any instrument.
At the end of each chapter, see what Richie thinks are that player’s three best recordings.
This is the digital downloadable version of the book.
