This superb new set of etudes fills a major gap in the musical resources for the aspiring jazz saxophonist . Master player Greg Fishman demonstrates the concepts of soloing to those students who know their chords and scales but lack the musical vocabulary to create professional-level solos. These twelve jazz etudes are enjoyable to play, yet present some technical challenges. But most importantly this album will allow you to play through the chord changes in a musical manner while clearly expressing the song's harmonic structure. The etudes are based on familiar chord progressions, including blues, rhythm changes, and a variety of common "standard" 32-bar song forms.
This unique and terrifically rewarding album will become part of you complete practice regimen!
"THIS IS REALLY A GREAT BOOK! A powerful sight-reading, ear-training, swinging, improvising jazz tool. Perfect for the student of jazz. Wish I had it when I was growing up. Glad I have it now." --Michael Brecker
"This is one of the most concise and easy to digest collections of solos over standard tune chord changes that I have seen. All the elements of good voice leading, passing notes and common scale usage are here. Very enjoyable!" --Dave Liebman
