This book and DVD package brings together Jeff Linsky's Mel Bay Artist Series Video, Latin Guitar Jazz, with music for all the pieces in notation and tablature. There are some direct transcriptions, but there are also arrangements of the pieces and analysis of Linsky's style, his techniques and his approaches to certain musical problems. Jeff Linsky is one of the finest guitarists on the contemporary jazz scene. He is well respected for his polyphonic solo guitar improvisation and for his fun and lively compositions. Just Jazz Guitar Magazine has commented, "In this collection of Linsky originals, you will hear plenty of imagination, melodic and harmonic inventiveness and sheer joy. Jeff's ability to create memorable melodies and dazzling improvisation is a joy to experience.".
