Stylistically, the charts include swing tempos from medium to very fast, and funk and Latin grooves. Five books are available: alto saxophone, tenor saxophone, trumpet, trombone, and drums. Each book contains solo sections, with chord changes for horns, and transcriptions of recorded solos by the Big Phat Band's lead players.

    My students and I LOVE the first play-along book in this series. They were asking me 'when will the next collection come out?' because they had mastered the first with the nice head chart and transcribed solos. I ordered the book based on how great all Gordon's music...

    is. I would like to have seen more 'adapted' head charts of the whole tune (not just the trumpet parts) and transcribed solos that challenge like the first book. This works well for more advanced players that are looking for the 'real' Phat Band experience - playing the actual original chart (not watered down) that Wayne nails so well. It reminded me more of an earlier book. Perhaps this is book 2 of THAT series and I am confused. Really hope to see more of this series: Alfred Jazz Play-Along Series Vol. 4: The Music of Gordon Goodwin for C, B-Flat, E-Flat & Bass Clef Code: AF-GG4
