    Musicroom Reviews

    This is THE book to buy for arranging for jazz groups. In the past I have purchased several books (some quite expensive) but none of them are a patch on this. The authors explain everything in a simple step-by-step manner that is in no way condescending. The double CD backs up their written examples for further clarification. They even put many further written examples to show that there are often solutions to musical problems. This book is the next best thing to being in class. Where has this book been all my life!
