\"Finally a hip jazz duet book from a sax man who can really play. I recommend this to any teacher who wants to share good music with his students.\"-- Phil Woods
The titles of Greg Fishman\'s new collection of duets read like a Chicago street map, and the music reads like a post-bebop encyclopedia of sounds and melodic shapes that are required repertoire for any young jazz saxophonist. This collection of duets is the most thoroughly notated and annotated that I\'ve seen, a must-have addition to any student\'s collection, and to their teacher\'s library.\"
