Easy to understand

Great stuff, I wish this kind of info was available in the 50's when I started. After 25 years or so I made a trip to the attic and came down with my old tenor and thanks to this type of stuff I'm finally having fun instead struggling all the time, and how could you go wrong for ten bucks. Thanks Nick

Great analysis of chord substitutions

Excellent analysis of multiple variations on the harmony. Disappointing no bass clef version in the melody pdf though

Gracias Nick por mostrar tantas posibilidades de rearmonización. Es un material muy valioso por su excelente explicación paso a paso y que nos anima a hacer nuestras propias rearmonizaciones. Espero que sea el primero de muchos en la serie Decoding Jazz Standards. Saludos desde España.

The best jazz standard pack at a risible price

There’s material for days and days of learning and practising. Having all you can need and even more for not only playing the song but also understand and discover thousands, literally, of possibilities. Congratulations and thank you for making and gathering all this stuff. As a piano player/student, I would appreciate having a piano video too. (Asking is free!!)

I would not repurchase if it would be ****...;-)

I bought several downloads already and will continue. It's the best you can get - and that for a absolute gorgeous price! Love from Switzerland Ralph
