Linear Jazz Improvisation:  7th Chords (Book 3)

Linear Jazz Improvisation: 7th Chords (Book 3)

Book 3 provides additional hands-on exercises to prepare the serious jazz improvisation student for chromatic targeting of reduced melodies—focusing on the 12 LJI 7th Chords in 2 octaves.

Play and sing each 7th chord while learning to chromatically target (embellish) it--and then improvise on that.

In the process of this LJI targeting of  7th chords, thousands of wonderful melodic ideas on octatonic (8-note) pitch collections are revealed.

This is also a great ear training book, since internalizing these essential 7th chord types will greatly advance your improvisational language.
