My First Book....Available July 2020

I have been playing and working on songs based on "I Got Rhythm" by George Gershwin for quite awhile now. It's a standard Jazz form that gets played over and over. Some of my favorite Jazz recordings are of "Rhythm Changes" too. So...

I composed 15 ''Rhythm Changes''. One for each key and a few extra because I got sidetracked in one key with variations! It's fun to compose.

My musical inspiration for this book comes from the music of Charlie Parker, Thelonious Monk, Lester Young, Warne Marsh and myself!

Besides the 15 songs in the book, I describe an approach I like to use for developing Jazz language and rhythmic flexibility. It's not complicated, it involves simply using parts of a song in a playful and explorative manner. It's demonstrated in the book.

If you want to buy a copy it will be available for ordering in July, 2020, through my website. If you want to reserve a copy now, just send me a message. I'll put one on hold for you and let you know when it's in stock!

Thank you and enjoy,
