    A concise guide to creating "hip' sounding voicings in the style of Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock and Keith Jarrett.

    WARNING: The sounds are modern and challenging. You WILL gain a deeper understanding of music if you actually struggle a long and play these chords. I looked at this book last year, shelved it, then looked at it 3 months ago, frustrated by battling for sound space with our guitarist...

    . I started in on the exercises. Then transcribing our band's tunes by hand. (I barely read, and certainly don’t write) Writing down Mantooth's wonderful chords has recharged my music, and made more than one bandmate say, "Wha!?!" It gives the band space. This method reenvisions every chord that you play as a series of fourths. Couldn't be more simple. Zero theory. If you can't play a Cmin7_b5 this book is not for you. If you can play a Cmin7_b5 and you're tired of how it sounds, then buy this tome. If you wonder what all those other notes are for, by this tome. You'll be play 11ths and 13ths as a matter of course.

  • November 14, 2007 A not so clear approach to jazz chord voicings

    This approach to jazz voicings is quite original but not as useful to me as I expected. There is too much to remember when applying these voicings. I would have preferred that the author, who has published many arrangements for tunes (which I use and like) would have illustrated jazz...

    voicings for some of the same tunes that he has arranged.
