    This book is the second in the series by Jim Snidero and moves quickly into more difficult passages especially in the altissimo register. The songs are very well written and sample many different jazz styles with typical melodic patterns. The accompaniment tracks are very well performed and the songs are...

    very well written. I have found that my abilities in jazz interpretation and performance have greatly increased since I began this series. There are also great instructional comments in the back of the book. I look forward to advancing to the final book in the series but that will take some time.
