    This masterfull work by Sid Jacobs makes the music of Bill Evans available to any guitarist who can read standard notation. These pieces are wonderfully arranged for guitar from Bill's piano voicings and there is much to be learned from his music. This book will reveal new details each...

    time you play from it. A fantastic addition to the guitar literature. 5 plus stars as these pieces will get you thinking about the fingerboard differently.
