Inside this new edition there a further 16,000 chord-based, copyright-free jazz audio loops based around 15 all-new popular jazz styles. The music has been created exclusively for SessionBand by five of the world's top session musicians under the guidance of UK jazz bassist and producer Geoff Gascoyne.
"What makes SessionBand unique is that all the content is chord-based" says Gascoyne, "making it possible for users to quickly and easily create full and complete backing tracks for any song...without playing a note!". For instrumentalists, the app is a unique accompaniment tool. Jazzwise Magazine describes it as "…the future of jazz play-alongs".
All musical content is downloaded with the app itself and resides there, so users can create music anywhere - without the need for ongoing internet access. SessionBand apps also come with professional features like automated mixing, auto-transpose, one-touch recording, real-time tempo shift and Audiobus compatibility - allowing users to seamlessly export content into other music apps like Apple's own GarageBand.
SessionBand Jazz - Volume 3 features some of the world's top jazz session musicians: Drums - Sebastiaan de Krom (Herbie Hancock, John Scofield, Phil Woods…); Sax – Dave O'Higgins (Jim Mullen, Ray Charles, Frank Sinatra, Salif Keita, Stan Tracey…); Bass – Geoff Gascoyne (Sting, Georgie Fame, Van Morrison, Bill Bruford, Gloria Estefan, Jamie Cullum…); Piano - Tom Cawley (Jack DeJohnette, Peter Gabriel, Charlie Watts, Jane Monheit, Guy Barker…) and Trumpet - Martin Shaw (John Dankworth, Michel Legrand, Tim Garland, Sting, Gorillaz, Jamiroquai…).
SessionBand Jazz - Volume 3 is the latest in a fast growing range of apps from the publisher UK Music Apps Ltd who have similar apps in other musical genres including Rock and Blues. SessionBand apps have already been selected as 'New and Noteworthy' in App Stores in Germany, Austria and Switzerland and have become best-sellers in all the major app territories. They have also been endorsed by stars such as Jamie Cullum who describes them as “extraordinarily useful”.
