Musicroom Reviews

Rating Review
Customer Rating Nice book. But why doesn't it tell you it's for E flat instruments? No good if you're a tenor player.

Customer Rating A fairly comprehensive introduction to the basics of improvisation. Absolute beginners to improvising would probably struggle without some additional guidance and practice pieces/routines, but lots of useful material here.
