Here are some AWESOME resources I've come across for studying transcriptions and jazz theory.
Charles McNeal (sax player, tons of transcriptions/practice licks)
Erik Veldkamp (trumpet player, huge resource for classical and jazz brass players, and tons of awesome transcriptions)
Clark Terry Rockin' in Rhythm in 12 keys (thing I did a while ago)
Saxopedia (TPT) (SAX) (GUITAR) (PIANO) (BASS) (some links are broken, but lots of good stuff nevertheless)
JAZZ EXERCISE BOOKS
Links to some of my favorite exercises for any jazz musician to use to advance their practice routine and get some structure in their sheds. ALSO great for those just beginning.
Jazz Improvisation Handbook (really awesome step-by-step guide for all jazz musicians to check out)
Jerry Coker Patterns for Jazz PDF (I need to shed this more. It's so good.)
Scale Omnibus (scales and modes like you've never seen before).
Modern Jazz Handbook (it's MODERN!!!!!!)
Art of Improvisation: This is a super heavy book on jazz pedagogy I just found and haven't really looked at yet. I might splice it up and share just a few pages of it here.
REAL BOOKS (shhhhhhh!! this might be sub-legal)
Real Book Directory (table of contents for all real books I have pdf access to, with links)
Real Book of Blues (just what you'd expect)
557 Jazz Standards from Swing to Bop (also very very good stuff.. if it's not in the real book directory it's probably here)
BOOKS FOR PURCHASE:
No jazz musician can master their art without studying piano, so I HIGHLY recommend purchasing Mark Levine's Jazz Piano book if you're serious about playing this music.
