  • July 17, 2008 Vol 2 is the next step up from Vol 1.

    I have used Volume 1 and Improvising Blues Piano by Tim Richards so I am a BIG fan of his. Volume 2 is the next version of Volume 1. Excellent books if you want to learn JAZZ. It takes lots of time to go through these books. I feel you...

    need Volume 1 before jumping to Volume 2. All three of these books are the BEST "how to do" books I have ever used. I've been looking for these books for many years.

  • December 19, 2007 The NEW JAZZ BIBLE

    Along with volume 1, and Improvising Blues Piano, these books are THE mainstay of your jazz learning experience. YEARS of Patience are required.
