          Great value for money! Good navigation, no nonsense, just 50 nice licks. If you change keys the licks can be mixed up or extended. I also found it easy to add my own ideas and improvisations. Bebop, Cool and some "Djanjo" sounding classical ascending lines.

          A mediocre DVD. Its pretty much as described, but half inspiring as the description would lead you to believe. Each time he demonstates a lick, the presenter's face and monotone voice looks like he's been through 50 takes! Nevertheless, it's tabbed and possibly useful for beginners. Much better is Joe Pass's "Jazz Lines" - learn jazz lines from a real pro/master.
