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.”

“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.”
