London GB sax teacher
Great music, great transcriptions, blisteringly fast!! But there are the slowed down versions as well for us mere mortals to play along with... It's expensive but worth it.

Rating Review
Customer Rating I used to have this book, then I lent it to someone & they returned it without the CD. Then they bought a copy & I borrowed the CD so I could make a copy - but by then I had lost the book! So, this time I decided it was time to shell out & buy another copy. I think it is an excellent book for trying to play like Charlie Parker - all the great tunes, explanations about the solos & demos (still at searing speeds - but hey, we have 'Transcribe' and 'Speedshifter' these days so we can slow it down to attainable tempos!) Great fun to play along with. Good teaching tool. So useful to have the demos to help with the reading & the style. Expensive but it's worth it.
