A GREAT course of study offering infinite musical sentences, showing how to incorporate all of the various extensions of the minor and dominate chords, as well as the language used on a modal approach. This book will save the student thousands of hours of transcribing time with all of the benefits of transcribing. Howie Shear's The Bebop Vocabulary is a comprehensive method that teaches the jazz vocabulary in a way that was previously accessible only through tedious transcription. In this systematic text, Howie teaches students the words of the jazz vocabulary, which, after prolonged exposure, the student will begin to speak as fluently as another language. Another excellent improv book! I studied from Howie in early 1980 and now recently again in 2013. I reccomend this book to any one who wants to be a convincing jazz player. The CD "Bopliography" is on this site at $15 - Dr Shear received a Bachelors in Education from Fredonia State University in 1975 and a Masters in Jazz Studies from the Eastman School of Music in 1977. He studied with James F. Burke and Raymond Crasara. Howie toured with the Woody Herman Band as lead trumpet player & featured soloist in 1980. After the tour he moved to Los Angeles and worked as a studio musician and soloist. Among the extensive list of artists he has worked with are: The Chuck Mangione Orchestra, Tony Bennet, George Benson, Mel Torme, Reno Jones, The Temptations, and The Spinners. He was the musical arranger and lead trumpet player on the Joan Rivers Late Night Show. Howie has also played various shows at the Ahamandson Theater and many jazz festivals around the world where he has held trumpet clinics. Arranger and producer of various jazz albums, Howie currently has his own jazz quartet. His classical work includes playing with brass quintets and choirs, solo church work, and solo work in the studios. He received his Doctorate in Music from the University of Southern California in 2002."
