For many musicians, the thought of improvising can be intimidating. In this exciting conclusion to the "Jazz for Classical Cats" trilogy, Andrew York shows you that improvisation is a skill that can be learned and practiced just like any other. It's simply a matter of knowing where you're going (targeting chord tones) and how you're going to get there (scales and modes). By practicing the ear training and visualization exercises in this book, you will learn how to turn the music you hear in your "mind's ear" into imaginative, great-sounding jazz solos. A CD demonstrating the examples in the book is included.
