It's hard to imagine a more in-depth and advanced lesson on jazz guitar than this masterpiece by Larry Coryell. All of his years of experience and knowledge come into focus as he works on how to play over changes, substitute chords and licks, turnarounds, breaking down complex single-note melodies, blues/jazz styles, swing comping, combining Django-style with modern “walking” bass lines, Coltrane phrases, Lenny Breau-style “waterfall” harmonics, “outside” playing, Gabor Szabo octaves, special stretch exercises, working with dissonance and even more! Larry shows throughout the tape how he's just as incredible a teacher as he is a player, and we can assure you, there's enough information here to keep any guitarist busy for a long time.

Whether it be a "Ravel Prelude," "Wichita Breakdown" or "My Foolish Heart," the music is full of logical surprises that foreshadow the eclectic nature of much of '80s and '90s jazz.
