    The only reason that this book doesn't get 5 stars is because I find it difficult to follow some of the tracks with the music never mind play along with them! Having said this the book and CD is intended for more than competent players. I am a big...

    fan of Gordon Goodwin's Big Phat Band and as such the book is fantastic and the CD couldn't be better. If you want inspiration to play Big Band music at the highest level then this is the book for you. The backing tracks are THE Big Phat Band playing the best selection of Gordon Goodwin's big band music, including "Huntin' Wabbits" and "The Jazz Police" (two of my personal favourites). You play along with the Big Phat Band and get the opportunity to improvise as the lead instrument; and although this is difficult it is very enjoyable trying to live with these great musicians in their environment. If you love big band music give this book and CD a place in your sheet music collection.
