      Un peu trop systématique et un peu trop fermé au niveau des lignes de basse et des trois positions de voicings. Très efficace par contre pour s'approprier les accords et les structures basiques de jazz dans toutes les tonalités.

      Very good book on voicings, I also like the way it has the bass lines (latin and walking). Shows inversions/possisions which is always good. Would recomend this book to anyone who plays jazz piano.

      This is an excellent resource for getting to grips with an authentic jazz piano sound.It gives rootless voicings in all 12 keys for dozens of chord types.Each sequence comes with 2 types of bass line (latin and walking)and to make the best use of each exercise you need a bass player or a recording of the bass lines.Every sequence has 3 voicing types:standing on the 7th, standing on the 3rd and a two-handed voicing suitable for comping.There are 78 exercises based on specific chords and further exercises based on well known chord sequences such as II,V,I and II,V,I,VI and blues progressions.
