It explains and exemplifies jazz lines: their foundation, variations, development and common useage on jazz recordings. ALL students of mine that came accross this book had basically the same opinion as me about this!
I can relate! Even simple licks sung by Chet Baker It showed me the absolute "basics" for all lines, some variations on them and then hundreds yes, hundreds of examples from my favorite jazz recordings. We could call it a "jazz improvisation technique" book Jazz solos have to clearly outline the changes by drawing upon these resolutions.
The most basic thirds and sevenths resolving: Has That "Ring of Truth" And the author demonstrates clearly that the resolutions happen naturally in the music from all time eras. Famous compositions and improvisations are mostly if not all based on three basic outlines and their variations : It makes a lot of sense as it is based in the major scale, our good old friend.
No extraneous explanations and concepts "out of left-field". It really "rings true" to me. And, most of all Good news : The book contains more than jazz lines from famous recordings!
BERT LIGON LINEAR HARMONY PDF
You explained things with level of clarity and precision that I had never encountered, and you caused me to re-think concepts that I thought I knew. I am forever in your debt, as are countless [former] students. Connecting Chords with Linear Harmony is a great study of how to create coherent solos and well-structured melodies by playing the changes and connecting the tones. I truly wish this was the first book on jazz I had read. The presentation is so logical and clear that I read in a half an hour what took a year to learn through other sources. I give this book my highest recommendation to anyone interested in learning jazz.
