  • I've been trying to be able to jam with local Jazz muso's for about 3 years now - I've used a number of books to try to 'get' improv, but I really couldn't crack it, and relied instead on memorising full solos (doesn't get you far). For some reason, Joseph Alexanders books just work for me - the theory is clearly explained (in digestible pieces) and the difficulty builds in steps - so that you really get this stuff into your head and fingers. So I spent a month with this book - end result is that I am now able to improvise over minor tunes and it actually sounds jazzy! Thanks Joseph :)
  • This book is a great view of what it takes to properly improvise through a Minor II-V-I progression. It pushes you through new concepts by using old concepts and combining them in great ways for soloing. Using arpeggios and bebop scales are the building blocks to a modern sound.
  • This is another fantastic book in the Fundamental-Changes series. It follows the same "winning" formula of breaking down II-V-I progressions in a very logical/practical way to facilitate internalizing the information so it can be applied to real life playing situations...
  • After you have worked through the examples, you are going to be playing beautiful and challenging lines... More importantly, you will have a deep understanding of the jazz vocabulary required to build your own lines... The audio examples and backing tracks really make the process a lot of fun!
  • Learning starts early and is well paced throughout the book. The exercises are selected so that the reader gradually builds the knowledge and confidence to not only work through them but also to learn how to improvise. After going through just the first 15 pages of the book, I was improvising minor ii V i solos on a backtrack that I recorded on my Boss loop station. So rewarding!
