More attractive and easy studies in technique and rhythm set in jazz and popular idioms. These books have become hugely popular and have been integrated into grades 1-3 of the new ABRSM woodwind syllabus 2003-2006. 27 melodic studies, all in jazz idiom, some are in swing style and three include improvisation passages.
There are helpful hints at the beginning of the book, and several of the studies give a written indication of the mood. Recommended. Music Teacher Magazine
