This book is one of the most comprehensive studies of jazz harmony and theory ever written from the author of "The Jazz Piano Book." It takes the student from the most basic jazz concepts through bebop and pentatonic scales, playing outside the changes, playing salsa/latin jazz, and a study of reharmonization. It is a VERY popular book with students and teachers and is taught in many University music departments around the world. French edition also available.
