Denis DiBlasio on Jazz Ed – Two fantastic books by Mark Lev

‘The Jazz Theory Book’ and ‘The Jazz Piano Book’ are two books that pack an incredible amount of useful information. Everything is clearly described and beautifully presented. These books are not a simple glossing over, but are in depth looks at a truckload of necessary topics that will aid one in becoming a better musician. Some topics included are basic theory, scale theory, slash chords, turning scales into music, playing outside, pentatonic scales, blues, rhythm changes, reharmonization, song forms, memorizing tunes, salsa and Latin jazz, fourth chords, block chords, upper structures, stride and Bud Powell voicings, tri-tone subs, and more.
Two great books!
