This set is a nice balance of classic lesser-heard originals. Each tune's tempo is realistic as far as where you might play it on a gig. The grading on this set is Intermediate/Advanced. That's probably conservative. Between the melodies to tunes like Isotope and Inner Urge and Joe's creative harmonic concept, you might find yourself frustrated if you are learning basic harmony and standards. But, if you have some experience and no fear of #11 chords, this set will prove challenging but worthwhile. There is a lot of great music to learn here.
Like most Aebersolds, this set includes book, CD, scale syllabus and a fairly recent discography of versions made by excellent performers. The rhythm section is excellent, and you can turn off either the piano or the bass by adjusting balance from left side to right side. Drums are present on both sides.
The only drawback to this set is that there aren't more tunes. Many of Joe's other tunes are available in other Aebersolds. Perhaps someday we will be able to make our own PlayALongs a la carte with tunes we select from the catalog.
Hope this helps!
