Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a MUST for anyone interested in learning about improvisation and the relationship of improvisation to harmonic theory and the contemporary 21st Century world that we live in. From the beginning of the book Mr. Sarath explores non-judgmental approaches to improvisation that work beyond musical genre. The text includes a wealth of harmonic information as well as explanations for figured bass realization and studies in counterpoint. One could teach an entire class of non-improvisers how to improvise in one semester using this wonderful book. It is a breathtaking achievement in scope and clarity. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!

I would highly recommend this book to classical musicians who want to break from the printed page of notes, and for more jazz-oriented improvisers, or rock-oriented improvisers -- to start getting a little deeper into more traditional forms: especially the parts on counterpoint.
