        Hull GB Sax player
        Lots of useful information on the theory of improvisation.
        The pieces are scored for all instruments - concert, Eb, and Bb so if you play several instruments you just need the one book. This makes it very good value for money.
        The backing tracks are good.

        Thetford GB mediocre bass player
        Book is split in 3 sections for different keyed instruments ie bass treble and concert .
        Scales to play over the chords used in the songs
        Good way to learn to play jazz
        Scales are a bit tight on page making slight hard to read ,may be better is spread over two pages.
        Bass lines in book are not same as played ,if you want note for note bass lines you have to buy another book

        cahier conseillé par mon prof de saxo, très bon embarquement pour jazz, blues

        The first book I used as an introduction to jazz standards and performance. It has since become my main teaching book for jazz beginners, full of good tunes and nicely laid out chord structures.

        This is a good book. Fourteen cool tracks transposed into keys suitable for various instruments such as tenor sax, alto sax, Bb clarinet and trumpet. Each track has useful guidelines on soloing and there is a helpful section on scales provided. The recordings on the cd are also well produced.

        A really great book for anyone wanting to learn to improvise, I recommend to all.

        Book covers Bb, C, Eb and bass instruments so is very good value. Helpful comments about famous recordings are useful for what the tune could be like! If you were that good. Good fun to play around with even if you dont want to play jazz seriously.
