One of Americas great contemporary players takes you on a journey of discovery and insight into the world of jazz piano that will start you playing the right way. In a 90-minute lesson packed with information, music theory and keyboard technique, players getting their start in the jazz idiom will gain a wealth of knowledge and acquire the tools youll need to improvise jazz standards.
Warren Bernhardts clear, easy-to-follow method builds your keyboard skills step-by-step, starting with the most basic of concepts: proper hand positions, ascending and descending diatonic scales in 3rds, and an understanding of chord shapes, inversions and important chord progressions.
This is a course that will develop your ear as well as your fingers. As you work your way through Warrens exercises and songs, youll learn to understand melodic improvisation, use tri-tones and blues scales, develop melodic ornamentation and gain many other important musical skills. By the time you have completed this first lesson in the series, youll be improvising Autumn Leaves and other famous jazz tunes.

I give this volume a 3 star--not great, but not bad. It's certainly worth $25.00 bucks having Donald Fagan's comp'er sitting at your piano for an hour.
