taken from the 'blurb':

'This book, then, attempts to demonstrate how a simple, to-the-point solo might be constructed on a variety of funk and blues settings. This is done in such a way that the solos are logical extensions of the tunes and the soloist becomes a 'member of the rhythm section' by playing the groove.

The way the book works is:

  1. learn each etude slowly (use the 1st half of the CD to see how they go)
  2. play the etude with the CD accompaniment (the version without melody is the 2nd half of the CD)
  3. read the text for each etude which deals with concept, style, and theoretical matters

You can also:

  1. solo over the whole etude as a means of working on improvisation
  2. play any of the etudes with a live rhythm section
  3. use any of the tunes as models for new compositions.'
