          My teacher bought this book for himself. I thought it was so good I also bought a copy. Gives 100 sample Jazz riffs in Swing, Funk, Latin, Ballad, Waltz. The CD plays the riff once with sax then repeats with just the backing so you can play. Makes you use unfamiliar phrases rather than rely on your favourite runs. Like the author, I found blues solos (relatively) easy but was totally lost when it came to soloing on even the simplest 'standards'. Found the riffs quite interesting, technically a challenge and the chord progression information useful. Some books can be cheesy and boring - not this one. And of course it will improve your sight reading.
