Abe Lagrimas Jr. is always fascinating to watch and we have recorded his live performances a number of times. This was 2010 at our live music coffee shop to give you an example of Abe's jazz sensibilities. He has been working on this book for the past two years and it is a real tool that can take your playing to the next level.

Hello. And Bye. Review by VitSoate / (Posted on 2/6/2020)
Applied Music Theory!
I wouldn't begin with this book but,...This is a must have for jazz lovers. It's also a must have for those who are not sure it is worth the time to learn music theory. This book not only demonstrates the application of theory but demands a basic understanding as part of improvisation. The accompanying download makes it worth it just for the listening. Thank you Mr. Lagrimas! I WILL be a better player from this book.
