Whether you're a beginner, an amateur, a professional or a teacher, you will find this book an excellent means of continuing your musical journey. This is a step-by-step guide to help you develop essential skills for improvisation.

The concepts presented are first demonstrated over the 12-bar blues progression; in later chapters, the ideas are realized over rhythm changes and in original compositions based on the chord progressions of jazz standards.

Topics include:

  • Scales and Modes
  • Chords and Riffs
  • Transposition
  • Musical Quotation
  • Phrasing and Articulation
