What the Pros are saying about “250 Jazz Patterns”:
“I highly recommend the book “250 Jazz Patterns” by Evan Tate, it is an invaluable tool
for the development of improvisation in the jazz language. I use it with my students to
develop their ear towards a more melodic and motif oriented approach to playing chord
progressions, specifically turnarounds and the essential ii V I variations. There is more
to this book than meets the eye, it not only feeds student but it teaches the student to
cook so that he/she can feed themselves for a musical lifetime.”
Tenor & Soprano saxophonist / Recording Artist
“In a world already overcrowded with instructional books written about jazz
improvisation, Evan Tate’s rises to the top. I urge any beginning musician interested in
becoming a more fluent improviser to buy this book. It will help you tremendously.”
Baritone Saxophonist/ Jazz Educator
The popular resource for students of jazz improvisation now available for Bass Clef instruments.
