Nova Musica Compendium: Jazz Guitar Studies with Dennis Sandole
A unique look into the creative world of studying with legendary Jazz Teacher and Theorist Dennis Sandole who is perhaps best known as John Coltrane’s Theory and Improvisation teacher as well as being the teacher of James Moody, Benny Golson, McCoy Tyner, Jim Hall, Joe Diorio, Pat Martino, and Randy Brecker to name a few.
Guitarist Scott McGill’s text is over 400 pages of scans of his original assignments compiled while working with Sandole and includes Technical, Compositional and Improvisational studies applying Sandole’s principles to Jazz Standards, an in-depth study of four note Guitar Chords with melody on every string, Exotic and Synthetic Scales and Arpeggios up to Twelve Notes and their application to Jazz improvisation, Classical and Jazz Transcriptions of works by Bartok, Debussy, Tatum, Tyner, and more. Invaluable to the serious advanced Jazz or Fusion Guitarist and useful for other instrumentalists as well.
