While helping at a workshop in Connecticut in 1966, one student asked Jamey to record a reel-to-reel tape of piano accompaniment and send it to him so he could have something to practice with. In Jamey's words, "I never did make him the tape, but instead made a record in 1967. This became the first Jamey Aebersold Play-A-Long, Volume 1.

After I recorded the music, I realized that I needed a book to help the user make sense of the LP of background music. Hence the book, which has now been revised many times. That first volume came out in 1967 and has been a best seller ever since. I never thought there would be a need for a second volume, let alone OVER 100!"

Now, for almost 40 years, the name Jamey Aebersold has been literally synonymous with the very best in jazz education materials. A world-class performer and a very charismatic teacher/lecturer who has traveled the globe giving seminars and workshops, Jamey's lifelong mission is to teach people how to play jazz and improvise.
