Skills For The Poetic Language Of JazzBy Mark Sherman edited by Brian Ross
My new book "The Poetic Language of Jazz Improvisation" is a book about this most fascinating art form, with advice both on how to continue your journey down that road towards a mastery of it, and how to make the right choices in your schooling and your career to advance your opportunities to perform and grow as a musician.
After more than 30 years pondering a system for teaching the poetic language of jazz, I have finally compiled many of the elements and drills into a systematic approach to learning these skills that will enlarge your palette of this musical language, and expand your improvisation.
