The licks are arranged in groups of chords (Maj7, min7, dom7), separate various maj &min progressions (ii-V-I, ii-V-i, ii-V-I-VI, ii-V-I-VI, I-VI-ii-V, i-V-ii-V), modes (dorian, lydian, phrygian, aeolian), styles (swing, bebop, hard bop, post bop, fusion/funk) and licks over some standard jazz tunes.
The licks are in a single key. A serious player will definitely practice each in the 11 other keys of course! Experimentation with different phrasings and articulations is left for the imagination of the player (who wants to be retarded by a spoon-feeding exhaustive book anyway?). Any level of skill (beginner, intermediate or advanced) player will enjoy the book. For those interested in improvisation, by the time you have (memorised/practised) as many as possible of these licks under your finger, you should be on your way towards improvisation! Truly 1001 licks!
Even if you have been playing Jazz for decades, you might just lean a few variations form this book.
