    Difficulty Level:
  • January 07, 2007 Good for teaching...

    Excellent resource for teaching/approaching jazz. Not only does it offer, in context, examples of patterns and lines for popular and standard chord progressions, but helps immensely with style, reading, and techinical prowess.

  • June 09, 2005 Outstanding Publication!

    This features etudes based on the changes for jazz standards, with increasing difficulty as you progress through the book. Each page is annotated with music theory and concept "tidbits" to answer the student's question "Why do we play that there?" It's a great book, and I would DEFINITELY...

    recommend it! Did I mention that it comes with a play along CD?
