JERRY BERGONZI, jazz saxophonist
"Randy knows how to break things down so a student can actually understand it. This book is chock full of great gems that both students and professional players could really benefit from."
JESSICA WILLIAMS, jazz pianist
"Randy talks about the experience, the real-time event, the nuts-and-bolts reality of making music from the heart. I recommend this book to anyone who is serious about music."
BILL MAYS, jazz pianist
"Never pedantic, this book moves in a logical, step-by-step, "hands-on" and easy to understand manner. It helped solidify and codify many things I 'knew' but had never been able to articulate. I highly recommend 'Metaphors For The Musician'."
GEORGE CABLES, jazz pianist
"Metaphors For The Musician" is an excellent tool for students and teachers alike."
CHUCK SHER , jazz publisher
