    None of the music in this book is written by the composers listed in the advertising. Instead, there are lessons "in the style of" followed by god-knows-who composer who writes an example "in the style of." Well, the examples are junk. If you are looking for music composed...

    by the honor roll of composers listed, you won't find it here.

    I have enjoyed listening to the great jazz pianists for many years and I have searched for help in learning how to emulate their fabulous styles with little real success. John Valerio's wonderful method book along with the CD has motivated me to learn and improve my own playing...

    skills beyond my expectations.
