        I'm not sure why they had to choose such an unappealing picture of Philip Glass for the front cover. No wonder the book was in the sales. That said, I like his music so thought this might be an interesting bargain, & I might be able to use it for piano practice & also transpose it for sax ensemble. Well... I might, if I can convince anyone to play with me, if they want to play the same thing over & over & never pause for breath..! Interesting riffs, lots of parallel 5th/4th harmony. Interesting.
