This 270-page, 90-minute DVD extension of modern bass virtuoso Tony Grey’s website takes students on a step-by-step, non-intimidating journey from the basics of jazz bass (scales, modes, circle of 5ths) to more advanced concepts (linear soloing through key changes, diminished harmony, hexatonic scales). Other books may cover more ground, but by focusing on modern jazz harmony—especially the modes of melodic minor and harmonic minor—before delving into walking bass lines, Grey has created a well conceived, powerful method that’s indispensable to anyone interested in building an extraordinary foundation, in any style.
