  • July 27, 2007 A Wonderful Sight Reading Experience

    This book is great. I play guitar, so all of the solos were in a different key for me, but it was still amazing. I recommend listening to the recordings and following along with the music. It's wild! As far as accuracy goes, I couldn't ask for more...

    . I've been entertained and inspired by John Coltrane's music for a long time now, but this book was something else. It is definitely one of the best sight reading books that I've practiced with.

  • February 19, 2006 This book was great

    the solos are amazing. I would like to comment on the passage above. This book has his trascribed solos; exactly what he improvised. If you buy what he suggested you will only get the melody and chord changes. If you're looking for his solos, buy this book.
