Jazz harmony, as taught at the Berklee College of Music is based on the so called Chord Scale Theory. This method - further developed - is now available as a comprehensive textbook for the first time. Emerged from practice and designed for practical use, it provides theoretical knowledge necessary for improvisation, composing, and arranging.
"Having never had any institutional training in harmony and theory, I have often wondered just how Jazz Harmony came to be? To develop and exist with its so deep well of knowledge that is necessary to the improviser? Where did this come from and how did it develop? ´The Chord Scale Theory & Jazz Harmony´ explains this and also goes farther by showing just how this knowledge can be used. My only regret is that I´ve just found it."
"A helpful and organized tool that can surely aid any musician interested in understanding harmony as it relates to the complex subtleties of jazz improvisation."
"This comprehensive textbook is a must for beginners, intermediate or advanced students. It is quite logically constructed, very easy to comprehend, and the amount of necessary information contained in this pages is very impressive. Highly recommended."
"This is a fine book, clear, comprehensive, and detailed. I like to think of it as the ´Basics Bible´. It would make a wonderful addition to the personal library of any jazz student or teacher."
"This book is a must for anyone interested in understanding the language of Jazz. It is laid out in a simple (but not simplistic) manner that guides one from the basic, to the most challenging concepts of improvisational aids. The book also shows a great respect for the traditions of our music which I feel is important for opening minds to the future. I highly recommend this book!"
