Timeless: The Music of John Abercrombie

TimelessBrilliant jazz guitar innovator John Abercrombie is known among jazz musicians as a composer of compelling, well-crafted tunes. Now for the first time, he has selected 34 of his original compositions to be available in book form. Chosen from 35-plus years of recordings, great tunes such as “Ralph’s Piano Waltz,” “Just In Tune,” “Convolution,” “Sound Track,” and “Wishing Bell,” are laid out as individual lead sheets. The book includes Abercrombie’s personal, sometimes hilarious, recollections about each tune, plus some of his unique guitar voicings with annotations, analysis of his compositional techniques, and a complete discography.
