It has been my experience as a jazz educator that many students overuse or completely misuse this basic tool of jazz improvisation. It is still necessary to know the chord changes of a specific song. Many students simply apply this over any and all chord changes and think they are truly improvising. 
This handbook shows where the basic scale comes from as well as demonstrating it's proper use in the field of improvisation. It also gives the player many options of phrases to use in various progressions. .
