Written by award-winning jazz artist and teacher Tony Dagradi for all instruments, this book develops solid technical skills in players at all experience levels. Young players can play just the basic exercises, while more proficient players can attempt the variations which follow each etude. There are 205 studies in all, covering the full range of intervallic relationships in major, pentatonic, diminished and whole-tone scales. Used with great success by Dagradi's jazz and sax students at Loyola University in New Orleans.
