This book goes beyond anything I had ever studied before. I could not believe that during my previous years of training no one really ever emphasized the importance of triads in the way this author does. If you are going to do improve you have to have a good foundation that includes training in triads and chords. This book is packed with explanations and exercises galore on triads that I know are helping me to get where I want to be.
This book is not a beginner’s book in the sense that it will not teach you how to read music or play a particular instrument. I have found that it is an excellent book for me as I know these basics and I want to build a strong foundation for improvisation. My goal is to master all the types of triads and this book is already helping me to meet that goal. It may be corny but I guess you can say I am jazzed about Jazz Triads! In fact, I am such a fan that I decided to write my 1st book review and I plan to follow up my study with the author’s book on chords.
