          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.

          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.

          Excellent fascicule; l'idée d'une version "slow"e st excellente car elle permettra des résultats relativement rapides, mais avec du travail. On pourra attaquer avec "Billie's bounce"(assez accessible) puis "Yardbird suite". "Ornithology" est déjà à un niveau supérieur."Anthropology"? Eh bien, tout le monde a besoin d'un objectif à long terme. Fascicule à étudier en parallèle avec des morceaux moins difficiles pour éviter le découragement; cependant, tout morceau réussi, même en "slow" marquera une avancée personnelle significative.
