    One excellent improv book is worth years of culture and this is one. You dive into the new references required for jazz with a proper emphasis on playing as the result of understanding. “How to Play and Improvise” imparts that understanding concisely, without the excursions into side topics that detract from my other pet jazz improv book. As I enter my third quarter of saxophone classes I expect that this book, which was recommended by my instructor, will take me from being a competent player to being a competent improvisor. Thank you Jamey!

    I had read the previous translation of this book over a decade ago, and this book is a huge step forward. If I had had this translation back then, I doubtless would’ve been much better at jazz improv today. The only downside of this book is the information architecture (e.g. page layout); it’s a bit arcane, but it’s charming I guess, like that disorganized folder of vital papers your music teacher force have given you when you were starting out. Content-wise, this book is filled with jazz improv gems. A must-have.
