    play-along album

    Hi,

    If the mass commercialization of jazz instruction has a decisive moment, it would probably be the arrival in 1967 of a play-along album and guidebook called ''How to Play Jazz and Improvise.'' The recording featured a rhythm section only, leaving room for anyone to fill in the blanks. Though not the first effort of its kind -- a company called Music Minus One was already in business -- it was quickly the most successful, and influential.

    (Jazz Is Alive and Well. In the Classroom, Anyway. The NY Times)


    What is the meaning of "play-along" in the above?

    The recording featured the rhythm section only. It was made for people to use their own instruments to play along with the record.
