|"These are the best jazz piano books I have seen."
- RON CARTER
"I wish these books had existed when I was first getting into jazz. It's a progressive method, arranged practically and sensibly."
- TOM BRISLIN, KEYBOARD MAGAZINE (May, 2001)
"This book is really great. It's very thorough and very accessible with a lot of examples."
- KENNY BARRON
"For once, a jazz harmony book that has plenty of text, written in a clear and practical style. Baerman's friendly and experienced voice demystifies such important topics as adding extensions to chords and creating substitutions in chord progressions. The book is really quite thorough, despite its compact length. If one takes to heart the author's instruction to play everything in all twelve keys, and to creatively apply what one learns to all the tunes one plays, this book and its accompanying CD can keep anyone busy or years."
- DR. LEWIS PORTER, Director, MA in Jazz History and Research, Rutgers University-Newark
"I really enjoyed this book - it explained many aspects of Jazz Harmony in a clear and helpful manner."
- URI CAINE
"I have respected Noah's pianistic skills for years. After reading this book, I am equally impressed by his ability to explain and teach the musical concepts he has mastered."
- EARL MacDONALD, Director of Jazz Studies, University of Connecticut
