In this book, the subject of contemporary fusion is covered progressively. Simply read the first chart and listen to it. Then read and listen to the last 2 and you will see this is designed to truly teach you something! What a concept. The progressive nature of this book is very satisfying if you wanted help taking your skills in reading, listening and writing music to the next level (certainly true as a self-teaching bass player). The book covers individual progressive/fusion concepts in rhythm, harmony and so forth, then shows you the concepts through the context of 4 very different charts. You also get the double take treatment, meaning you get the demo track with full band followed by the "minus bass" track. Though, I recommend playing along with the demo early on if this is not the type of music you often get to play/practice. This is straight standard notation. No TABS, which is a good thing if you want to play music with more advanced musicians.
If your ears are very knowledgeable on fusion music, you may be a bit disappointed in the overall selection of charts covered. This book certainly could use 2 more volumes. You will not get too much of an opportunity to cover traditional walking lines in a modern fusion context which you often hear with payers like Anthony Jackson or John Pattitucci. There is not much for neo-soul crossover here either. This mostly contains light funk influences and some afro-cuban styles in a modern jazz/rock context. So, if you really like names like Robert Glasper, "Thundercat" Stephen Bruner, Hiromi Uehara or Simon Philips and so on, you may be left wanting a bit more.
All the same, this is a great start and hopefully we can see more of this in the future from Carl Fischer and the Collective guys in NYC.
