Make sure you select the CORRECT instrument when you order. Just click on the book below to view the order page. I highly recommend you purchase iRealPro along with the books to help facilitate your practicing.

These books (Part 1 & 2) are basically my blue theory book called "A Lyrical Approach to Jazz Improvisation" with all the exercises from that book written out FULLY and with iRealPro playalongs so you can practice with your students or friends regardless of the instrument you play. There is NO theory in these books.

There is a Part 1 and a Part 2 book for Bb Trumpet & Clarinet; Bb Tenor & Soprano Sax;

C Flute & Piano; C Trombone; and Eb Alto and Baritone Saxes.

Become a better jazz improvisor. Teach ALL instruments in your class using lyrical lines and playalong with iRealPro or your own rhythm section!!!
