    This is good stuff. Had some time to browse and came across this. Very nice.
    Jazz is a mental attitude rather than a style. It uses a certain process of the mind expressed spontaneously through some musical instrument. I'm concerned with retaining that process.

    I had to make an account just to thank you for this! Thanks! I just started learning after about 4 years on the horn and could use any help I can find.

    My wife and child leave Monday to go to England to visit family and friends for two solid weeks, leaving me in an empty house except for the dog and my new tenor... perfect opportunity to start to get this essential skill moving in the right direction! Thanks Ben- you are a gentleman and a scholar. Spare a thought for the poor dog!

    Cool, will check it out. These exercises plus my old nemesis Jerry Coker (Elements of the Jazz Language) should keep me out of trouble! Thanks again.

    Just checked out your website Ben and listened to a few clips. YOU ARE A MONSTER PLAYER! Wow what a great modern sound; in the tradition, in the pocket but definitely original and just you. Thanks for sharing your knowledge with this old hack. And I like your advice in the interview with Don Orenstein- never give up!

    Great thread!!

    Anyone know of a fingering for B on a mark V1 alto. my normal fingering is always sharp I use palm D B/A F/E/D. I realise different brands require slightly different fingerings. In addition you always need the ability to move easily to you next note weather going up higher or coming back down.
