Review quote

Information regarding the characteristics and an explanation of how to play in each style is profuse and the books has an excellent introduction for those new to improvising . . . Excellent value for money' * Jazzwise online store Summer 05 (Rating - 5 out of 5 stars) * Santin and Clark are up against stiff opposition from the obvious might of the Jamey Abersold empire, so they are to be congratulated on doing an excellent job . . . This new title brings together essential learning material in a small package . . . Two CDs are included with piano, bass, and drums. These are well up to the Aebersold standard, being well recorded with superb playing. * Andy Tweed Music Teacher Jan 06 *show more
