  • September 22, 2012 This is techo

    This is VERY techo. I wasn't expecting it to be that serious - for the non-professional jazz player I think it is too technical for what you need to know. But if you want to get into jazz really, really seriously, then I would not go past this book...

    . Everything that needs to be covered sure has been covered.

  • April 20, 2011 The only jazz piano book you'll ever need.

    Even for someone like myself who often doesn't recommend learning jazz out of books, I make an exception for this one. I can almost guarantee that if you go through this book AS PRESCRIBED - that means playing all the tunes at the ends of the chapters in all keys...

    and practicing all the exercises exactly as he suggests - you'll be at a professional level on jazz piano. I say this because I'm a professional jazz pianist, and most of what I know about jazz piano comes from this book ... and I haven't even gotten through half of it.

  • September 28, 2005 I would suggest the Jazz Theory Book 1st

    Between his Jazz Piano and Jazz Theory books, Mark Levine has put together almost everything you need to know about playing jazz piano. Since I am still relatively new to jazz, I got both and found that the Jazz Theory book is a little more practical and almost twice as...

    long, while the Jazz Piano book focuses more on voicings in different styles. If you are new to jazz, these two books easily have 5-10 years worth information for you, but both are definitely designed for students with basic music theory knoweldge and several years of piano under their belt.
