'''THIS IS REALLY A GREAT BOOK! A powerful sight-reading, ear-training, swinging, improvising jazz tool. Perfect for the student of jazz. Wish I had it when I was growing up. Glad I have it now.'' '--Michael Brecker'
'''This is one of the most concise and easy to digest collections of solos over standard tune chord changes that I have seen. All the elements of good voice leading, passing notes and common scale usage are here. Very enjoyable!'' '--Dave Liebman'
I wish I had material like this when I was coming up. These etudes are little masterpieces. There is such a wealth of material to learn from here. Great line construction and great conceptual ideas. Having the rhythm section continue after the etude is a great idea! I will be using these with virtually all my students from now on. Greg Fishman has done a terrific job of putting this book together, and the play-along rhythm section is first class!''''--Mark Colby, Depaul University, Elmhurst College'
'''This book is a written version of the way jazz is supposed to be taught--learning from a great player who truly understands how to distill the language into clear, understandable terms. Chicago-based saxophonist Greg Fishman has composed a set of etudes based on standard tunes that are one of the best collections of this type I've seen. The lines he composes are textbook versions of post-bop saxophone improvising, and will give students at all levels a wealth of material to practice and internalize. Fishman is equally well-versed as a teacher and as a saxophonist--it's a rare combination that is showcased in this book.'' '--David Demsey, William Paterson University, Saxophone Journal'
