by Hal Galper
A Corrective Approach to Jazz Phrasing, Hal has been teaching the subject of "forward motion" for many years to students worldwide. "Right" notes will only get you so far.
Forward Motion, the concept of beat/note placement, will give your phrases a sense of logical flow and natural resolution. This is a concept understood for hundreds of years by some of the greatest classical composers and, more recently, by jazz legends.
Like the concept itself, Hal's writing style is forward moving and logical, making a potentially difficult concept easy to grasp and understand.
A new idea in Jazz publishing, this book will perpetually grow and expand because all the exercises and play along tracks (about 300 right now) are web-based, so the author will be continually editing and adding. Nearly 200 sprial bound pages.
