This guidebook for organizing chromaticism into a coherent musical statement is meant to satisfy both the intellectual and emotional needs of artistic creation. Advanced players will enjoy this book for its invaluable assistance in developing an individual technique for chromatic improvisation. For musicians already adept at tonal playing and conversant with the language of playing on chord changes, this book offers another approach towards widening one's artistic palette. CD/Play along with David Liebman (saxophone) & Phil Markowitz (piano) "To me, this book is one of the most fascinating and illuminating books ever written on the subject of improvisation. All of the musical examples are stimulating, and Dave's essay on related topics are as elegant and insightful as anything I've ever read about improvised music. For musicians looking to expand their harmonic and melodic vocabularies, this is the book!" Pat Metheny.
