SessionBand is the world's only chord-based audio loop app. Users create
their own professional quality, copyright-free jazz tracks in minutes

musicians of any ability".
It's positioned as a professional jazz app "...ideal for music students
and perfect for the ultimate jam session", while simple enough for
non-musicians and beginners to experiment with. Users select from 10
jazz chord variations (per root note) for each of the 15 popular jazz

chords in any of those styles.
SessionBand Jazz comes with professional features like automated mixing,
auto-transpose, one-touch recording, real-time tempo shift plus
Audiobus compatibility - allowing users to seamlessly export content
into other music apps.
The app is powered by over 16,000 precision-cut jazz audio loops (all
chord-based), recorded exclusively by: Ralph Salmins - Drums (Wynton
Marsalis, Burt Bacharach, Elton John, Madonna...); Geoff Gascoyne -
Bass (Sting, Van Morrison, Georgie Fame, Michel Legrand...); Andy
Panayi - Saxes and Flutes (Wynton Marsalis, Paul McCartney, Peter
Erskine, Freddie Hubbard...) and Tom Cawley - Piano (Jack DeJohnette,
Peter Gabriel, Guy Barker, Andrea Bocelli...). All are either
professors or senior lecturers at top London music schools including
Royal Academy of Music, Royal College of Music, Trinity College and
Geoff Gascoyne, who commissioned and arranged the music said: "This is a
ground-breaking app on so many levels, but especially for music
students and improvisers who want to practice with their very own jazz
