Jamey Aebersold Books Have Arrived!

Jamey Aebersold books have arrived at the Max Chambers Library. The first volume was published in 1967; now, nearly fifty years later, there are over 130 volumes. His play-along series is one of, if not the most recognized series of jazz play-alongs.

Aebersold is known internationally as a saxophonist and as an “authority on jazz education.” He was born in New Albany, Indiana on July 21, 1939. In 1962, he graduated with a Master-level degree in saxophone from the University of Indiana; thirty years later, Indiana awarded him an honorary Doctorate of Music. In 1989, Mr. Aebersold was inducted into the International Association of Jazz Educators Hall of Fame; past inductees include Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Count Basie and Charlie Parker. In 2014, he became a recipient of the National Endowments for the Arts-Jazz Master award, the “nation’s highest honor in jazz.”

Of the 133 volumes published in the series, we’ve received six (6):

In addition, we have received the piano transcriptions of each volume. All volumes (except for the piano transcriptions) include a CD for play-along, but must be checked out separately in addition to the book. All will be housed in the Multimedia department of the library.
