What's most useful on this, in reflecting back, is that the book not only gets players to expand their playing ranges, but to learn all the nuanced chord progressions and fingerings for be-bop at it's best. As a jazz alto player I always used this book to help me play 'up and down' the registers, to exercise my chops, and work on speed and technique.
Playing the songs from Parker's omnibook definitely helped me see and learn how pro sax playing's supposed to be done, and this is top notch, tough-to-play-but-worth-learning transcriptions from the best. A must-get for all aspiring and even us old-timer jazz alto players.
It helped me learn how to run riffs across registers, use a lot of sharps/flats the right way in specific riffs, and build a reportoire of hundreds of small riffs that are instant jazz classics. I recently bought this again, both in Bflat for my soprano, and Eflat to get a clean copy for my alto. Highly recommended, it's super to see how Bird did it.
