Sandole's Jazz Craft of Jazz series is one of the most important sets of jazz texts in the history of the genre. These are the books that taught legendary artists like John Coltrane how to improvise.
Volume 3 of Sandole's great Craft of Jazz series is broken up into 5 smaller books. This listing is for part one, entitled “Fourth Chords & Scales”. It is unclear if Sandole ever finished all 5 sections of the final volume of the series, but I am deep in research to bring it to you if it does exist. It seems that the books of the 3rd volume are more specialized, more in-depth, and will take your improve to even deeper uncharted waters.
The volumes of this series include:
1. Beginner's Method for Jazz Improvisation (LINK)
2. Craft of Jazz I “Apprentice (LINK)
3. Craft of Jazz II “Journeyman” (LINK)
4. Craft of Jazz III Fourth Chords & Scales from Jazz Improvisation III (LINK)
5. Jazz Patterns (LINK)
6. Jazz Tunes (LINK)
7. Music Primer (LINK)
8. The Art of Songwriting (LINK)
