Excellent Jazz theory book on Harmony-Scale theory, Improvisation, and Jazz Composition technique, for all Jazz musicians!! A must read!! Can be considered as a "standard Jazz Theory" Manual for students of Piano, Bass, Guitar, and Woodwinds!! If you have never understood the techniques and the phrasing of melodies for Bepob, Blues using the modes...this is the book for you!!
