“This is a powerhouse of a book – a real 'owner's manual' for the jazz piano mind. Mark Davis presents the essential material in easily digestible packets, each buidling on the last, and as a whole building on the concepts from the first book. I'll be referring both beginning and intermediate students to this course.” – Geoffrey Keezer, multiple Grammy®-nominated pianist. ©2019, 96 pages
