Presented here is the necessary information, stated clearly and simply as possible, in the hope that motivation and inspiration will soon follow on the heels of comprehension. The responsibility of a teacher lies in getting students excited, as well as presenting the theory to them in an easily assimilated form. Jazz Mastery will certainly serve up equal portions of the requisite information and inspiration. Companion DVD included, 2 hour 47 minutes; all in standard notation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 12 April 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book which explains the construction of the melodic minor scale, the harmonisation of the melodic minor scale and it's many uses in jazz, rock and fusion. If you understand the major scale, the modes and the harmonic minor scale, including how to harmonise the scales I have mentioned then this is a good next step into the world of understanding the melodic minor scale and it's many applications.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid theory applied by a master 23 Sep 2009
By Ronald E. Warren - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this dvd and book. I would have never used the melodic minor in all the situations that John advises. It works! If you always wanted to sound a little more "outside" this book and dvd are for you. I find myself playing melodic minor scales and even modes of melodic minor more and more in every style I play.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great study material 30 July 2011
By Ben's Dad - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
First of all I'm a big admirer of John Stowell's playing so I purchased this book and DVD set with a pronounced positive bias. I received it earlier this week (7/30/11) and so far I've reviewed the entire dvd and have slowly begun working through the short book.

In the DVD the viewer is treated to some truly mind and ear opening performances along with examples from the book material. This material was written and recorded in 1999 and looks like it's been transferred to DVD from VHS. That said the material is fresh and the video and sound are more than adequate to convey Stowell's substantive teachings.

The book contains a lot of insight into his approach along with substantial practice material. While the book is short at 37 pages, the lessons are long because to be of value, his material must be worked to the point that it's integrated into one's playing, which is no small feat. In fact, this may be the longest 37 pages I've ever read. Needless to say, this is not a beginner's book. Rather it's for players who already have a working grasp of jazz and improvisation. (you can see my playing at 4thstuning on YouTube to judge whether or not my opinion has merit).

If one is interested in integrating triadic approaches and seamlessly blending alternate scales and their associated harmonic structures into one's repertoire OR just wants to know how John Stowell does it, this will be a very useful book.
