How to Play Bebop, Vol 3 Reviews
I'm going to leave this for all 3 volumes lest anyone miss my blathering.
David Baker's books are classic and there is a reason why. These will help your jazz chops. You can't help but expand your bag of licks with these classic bebop lines. Know some basic theory before you begin to work with these books (volumes 1-3.) The books move right along with breif explanations that assume that you know basic music theory. Other than that, buy em', use em', get 'em in your collection. If you like bebop, you can't go wrong with these books.
There’s lots of great information and examples on bebop. However, I would recommend the first two volumes of the series as a starting point for those who are new to the genre.
This book used "Groovin' High" as an example to learn Bebop. If you are trying to learn more about Bebop this book is a must.
I chose this rating because the three volumes met my expectations fairly complete. I like the books because they present the matter so easily and didactically. It is still difficult a concept more concrete for the short time I had to study. The book is a method and only with a time of work I will answer all questions. I recommend these books for all musicians who love jazz and bebop particularly
David Baker is the genius of jazz theory
This book met all of my expectations!
I find some of Baker's works brilliant and others terrible. His "How To Play Bebop" series fits in the brilliant category and you really should get all three. Volume 1 is the most essential of the series, then volume 3, and lastly volume 2.
