ISBN 978-1-56224-029-5.

The most complete method for chromatic improvising over standards! David clearly explains and demonstrates the art of superimposing chords chromatically over "standard" chord changes (using several popular jazz favorites as his vehicles) to play contemporary sounding jazz lines. Includes standard and superimposed harmony for Girl From Ipanema, Donna Lee, Autumn Leaves, Take The A Train, Satin Doll, Rhythm and Blues Changes, Impressions, India, Loft Dance, and A Love Supreme. The CD contains both verbal instruction and David soloing over the standards using the techniques described in the book. The book contains analysis for each solo and the solos on the CD are transcribed for all C, Bb, and Eb instruments!
