    I like this approach-it's a very language based and creative way to look at improvisation. Some of the exercises were really hard and really made me think about what I was doing. It's a different approach, but it works and I liked it.

    I really liked this book..I play trombone. The CD has Jeff Gallindo on trombone demonstrating some of the solos and techniques and he is just amazing! The book itself starts pretty easy, but ends up being pretty hard towards the end. I hadn't really though of improvisation this...

    way before, but it really improved my playing. I'd definitely recommend it.
