    Actually, I've already reviewed this particular book - but I liked it enough to purchase it as a gift for someone else who played from mine and liked it. I'm a novice at jazz, so this book has offered great insights and varied practice.

    Great book! The music is fun and sounds great. If you love the blues and jazz this is a great book to learn with. The music on the play along CD sounds like it's played and recorded by pro's! The music in the book get's harder as...

    you work through it.

    A very good introduction to the blues with easy to understand theory and scope for improvisation. The pieces seem to get harder as you go through the book, but there is something there for everyone I think however advanced you may be. Buy it!

    This book is a lot of fun to play, especially for a player just delving into blues. Worth the money.
