This book of jazz scales will develop the skills required in playing jazz. It introduces patterns characteristic of the idiom, such as modes, the blues scale and the minor pentatonic, and explores these on roots and in key centres commonly found in jazz.
Thia book is only of use to applicants wishing to take ABRSM jazz exams.
All ABRSM exam scale books are badly laid out. A student sees pages of disconnected information.
The jazz scale books are worse still. Key signatures are hopelessly wrong.
If you want to learn "ABRSM jazz" then you'll need this sorry book. If you want to learn about real world terms, avoid it like the plague. Anonymous
