A Guide To Non-Jaz Improvisation Composed by Weissman/Fox. For Piano. Published by Mel Bay Publications Inc. (Catalog # 20828BCD, UPC: 9780786675524)

This book will appeal to pianists who want to learn to improvise in many of th e styles current today including blues, rock, Latin-American, country, New Age , World Music, etc.

When the trombonist kept playing a bebop solo t hat was totally unsuitable for the chart, Dick realized that - in addition to the many musicians who do not improvise - there are even jazz musicians who do n't know how to improvise outside the limits of their own stylistic background s.
