Instructional recordings (CDs 3201- )
The Music Library owns a large set of play-along CDs (with booklets/music) on various jazz styles, produced by Jamey Aebersold. All ASU students, faculty and staff may check out the key to the Jazz Improvisation Lab (Broyhill Music Center, Room 452) The CD and music booklet may be checked out to take to the Lab for up to four hours at a time (though the key MUST BE RETURNED each day before the Music Library closes.)
To see what styles are covered, browse through the red books shelved behind the Oversize section.
