Few instruments can match the expressive range of a piano. From the subtlest, brittle treble to the earth-shattering rumble of the bass – mastering any genre, style or emotion. But it’s not all in the instrument. Just as much comes from the player, the progressions and voicings. If you’re not a pianist, this is the closest you are going to get to having one at your beck and call 24/7.
From the turn-of-the-century barrelhouses in the no-name towns of the Southern states to the dimly lit bars of modern day Chicago, we explore the journey of boogie and the blues. And from the beaches of Copacabana to the smoky bars and well-lit world stages, we dive into the musical treasures of latin and jazz. And from the persistent beat that echoed through the ’70s and transcended to the power of praise, we delve into the kindred spirits of funk and gospel. Welcome to a musical journey in the form of piano song structure variations, ready for you to drag, drop and build your own songs from. All this coupled with the powerful framework of EZkeys gives you not only instant song ideas, it lends you a creative canvas, ready for you add your own expression to.

The legacy and creative power instilled in classic funk-inspired chord progressions and playing styles is obvious in this pack!

A lot of modern music stems from gospel. It’s a melting pot of root music. It has the melancholy of the blues, the heartache of soul, the subtlety of jazz and the uplifting joy of the boogie - all encapsulated in the power of praise. Mix, match and create - make heartfelt ballads, uptempo boogie, subtle jazz or classic RnB. This pack is literally a scorching hot kettle of inspiration, oozing with ideas for your future hits!
When Toontrack asked jazz piano maestro Thiago Pinheiro (Stevie Wonder, Billy Cobham) to deliver a cross-section of jazz piano through the ages and boil that down into a songwriting-friendly EZkeys format, he took us on a jazz-fused ride starting with the standards through the sub-genres and ending up right where we are today.
This extensive collection of chord progressions and playing styles for Latin inspired music, is flawlessly performed and broken down into the song-writing friendly EZkeys format, ready for you to mold and shape into your own songs.
All the timeless 12 bar progressions, the walking bass lines, the breaks and leads. Simply put, a century of boogie heritage boiled down to a collection of ten tracks organized in easy-to-use piano MIDI pieces
