I already owned this book in paperback so I just ordered the Kindle version because I use my iPad for practicing now because it is big enough to read music on. The paperback version is a big book so it weighed to much in my carry on bag to take with me on trips, I don't bring bulky books anymore when the book can go on my iPad.
The book itself is a very thorough book for technique practice ideas when working on jazz improv, I consider it one of a small group of essential reference books for me. This is such a comprehensive book. Jazz has traditionally had a learning process that auditory and intuitive but if you have a theory background or you are accustomed to thinking and visualizing as you learn about music this book is an invaluable help. It has so many exercises and examples it take a lifetime to master everything.
I am trying! I have collected a lot of books on jazz instrumental tuition over the years, and to be honest, most try to present the same information in a new and more accessible manner. But this is a given. Ligon's book is no different but it does it in a way that makes that information more usable than most of the others.
I particularly love chapter XV. Outline Exercises, and would have paid the price of the book for this chapter alone. In this chapter Ligon demonstrates how to outline chord changes.
Running the changes is the bane of many up-and-coming improvisers and s of books have been written on this topic. It is very important: if you can't play the changes then life as a soloist is going to be very hard.
Ligon presents this technique in a manner which really works. A manner which allows one to take this knowledge from the page, practise, then play! I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 because of the binding.
Mine started to fall apart after not a lot of use. This book is so important that it will spend a lot of time in use so spiral binding would have been better. This is not a book for beginners. I think you should be able to play the 12 major scales, the common arpeggios and be able to read treble clef. Probably about a grade 3 technique or thereabouts. A basic understanding of jazz harmony is desirable too.
I hope this review has helped. There is a lot I did not cover: embellishment, neighbour tones, all the usual jazz study topics. I hope you get the same satisfaction and enjoyment from using this book as I do. A must have for those seeking to master their instrument in modern and especially improvisational styles.
Well organized and succinct where it needs to be with more in-depth explanation where needed as well. Ligon has really achieved something here. A serious student could work from this book for years!
I have the theory book that these exercises accompany in a loose way, so I trust Ligon to give the simplest explanation possible for complex theory questions. Many pattern books don't explain the source of the pattern, or name it without much explanation. With this book, you always know what the exercise is for, how it connects to jazz theory.
You can focus on the simple or the complex. I really got inspired by some of the triadic exercises, and also by the patterns using Lydian dominant scale. Ligon's intent is that you learn enough through his examples to create your own patterns and lines.
There are many, many exercises to choose from, in treble and bass clef transposition is left to you and I know I will continue to return to it as long as I play. I wouldn't recommend it to beginners, but intermediate, advanced, and professional level musicians should have this book. Go to Amazon. Back to top. Get to Know Us. Shopbop Designer Fashion Brands.
