For all musicians and composers. Don't let the title mislead you. This is not a "bass book!" This is an easy to understand book about jazz harmonic motion, including bass movement (hence the title), for all musicians.
Understand the different devices used to create music you are hearing by learning about motion. There are different paths we use to get from point to point in a basic song structure or from inside a specific tonality or group of tonalities. Learn about taking situations that occur in one tune and applying that action to similar situations in other tunes. A simple and logical explanation of how and why these method work.
"This 32 page book is a complete, succinct, and easy - to - understand version of the basic harmonic and linear language of jazz. If you were introducing musicians to jazz and wanted to give them a concrete place to start and progress, you could and should just teach to this book." - Kenny Werner
