    I have purchased this book in order to get valuable clues to enhance the art of comping. Unfortunately this book does not help me at all because there is no indication about the way of comping (rest, syncopation, rythm, etc) but just chord symbols. I was looking for something different...

    . The annexed CD is nice and it would have been great if the sheet would have displayed the piano comping part exactly as it is played.

    The charts in this book are just block chords, mostly whole notes, with occasional half notes. The chords in the book don't follow the CD most of the time and the chords are incorrect much of the time. "The Jim Odrich Experience" is MUCH better.
