8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Joe Livoti on November 1, 2010
Format: Paperback
I found this book around 1979, after studying with the great N.Y. teacher, Howard Morgen. He had mentioned Joe Diorio to me, and when I saw this book and looked through it, the solos just 'looked different' than anything else I had been used to reading.
I must admit that I absorbed very little of it the first few attempts. Joe shows diagrammed chord changes and then two solos each over standard progressions (Wave, Blue Bossa, All the Things You Are, etc). The first solo is a more 'traditional' type be-bop solo, and the second is in Joe's style, which includes lots of lines with 4ths, 5ths, chromatics, etc. These lines take a lot of practice, and a lot of analyzation, if you really are going to absorb them and use them to their full potential.

With that said, a lot of this stuff has become part and parcel of my playing. They are some of the coolest sounding lines ever, and the newer editions include a cd, which makes the learning curve a lot easier. (Mine was supposed to include a cassette, which was missing).

I have spent time with this book regularly since I found it, and over the years have memorized quite a bit of it. A few years ago, I managed to contact Joe. We stayed in touch, and during a visit to L.A. I visited him and had the honor and pleasure of spending a long day with him. I have been a big fan of his, and I was not disappointed at all. He is a living history lesson of jazz...started GIT with Howard Roberts and Don Mock, was friends with Lenny Breau and Joe Pass, played with everyone you can name. He shared some great stories and insights with me. I played him some of the solos from the book from memory, and he got a real kick out of it.

Great Joe Diorio Book- I had this years ago and decide to order it again to revisit this material. This book has not only which note on which string to play via tab, but also which finger is to play that note. Some of Joe's other books are not so thorough. It also includes a great solo piece that is played with a pick
