Which method of viewing music should I use?
Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:
You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.
Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.
If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.
The interactive preview also shows a preview of the first page, but it's a bit slower to load. The preview is displayed using the Sibelius Cloud Publishing technology from Avid. With most scores, this technology will provide a higher quality preview, as well as being able to switch to full screen mode and also play the displayed music to you.
Printing after purchase
After you have purchased this item the Cloud Publishing technology is utilised to provide the printing mechanism for the music. As such, we recommend checking that the Interactive Preview displays correctly on your device before committing to a purchase.

This is the first of a dozen jazz exercises and etudes from Scot Ranney’s Jazz Piano Notebook, Volume 1.
What this exercise does is give you two simple but sweet sounding 2-5-1 chord progressions in a rootless voicing configuration (meaning, you wouldn’t play the C in a C chord). If you went to a jam session armed with only these voicings, you’d be able to get through most of the tunes they’d call.
Here’s a video of how it sounds: http://youtu.be/xMGwnH4-HOw
Jam session note: also come armed with three or four tunes you really know well that you can call and really jam on. Don’t call the same tunes week in and week out at the session.
I ran a session in Bellingham at Boundary Bay Brewery for around 5 years. Lots of fun, but a couple regulars called the same tunes every week. That when I’d assert my authority as the band leader to play the tunes in different styles, sometimes upsetting the repeat tune violators while at the same time making it bearable for the rhythm section.
Don't forget, the rhythm section is that part of the music that makes you sound good if you don’t happen to be in the rhythm section.
For anything not permitted by the above licence then you should contact the publisher first to obtain permission.
