REVIEWS AND QUOTES

 "Such a compact book of practical materials for every serious jazz musician, 
which helps to craft one's musicality as well as creativity."
- MARS SIU-HONG LEE, PRESIDENT OF MACAU JAZZ PROMOTION ASSOCIATION

===

"It's precise, concise and straight to the point. It would really help those who are trying to get new ideas for their jazz improvisation or those who are trying to learn jazz (newbies)."
- ELMER HO (elmerdraco), COMPOSER

===

"A simple yet effective book from a virtuoso. Az’s musical wisdoms written concisely; and accurately defining jazz in all forms."
- RAY CHEONG - MUSICIAN, COMPOSER, GUITARIST & PRODUCER

===


"Definitely something new and unique! A huge pool of riffs, licks, and ideas for you to experiment with. For myself, it helped me discover some unpredictable melodic styles and some different fingering approaches. It also made me think about different ways to approach the same lick and branch out from it to create my own ideas. Super handy if you’re stuck or not sure how to get started because you can just start off with any lick and go off on your own personal tangent after that. All in all, a great little book for anyone looking for more insight into some of the stylistic components of jazz and improvisation as well. Oh! And such beautiful etudes too!"

 - LI YING - MUSICIAN, ARTIST & AVID LEARNER

"Az Samad’s delightful collection of exercises and etudes is a fantastic resource for anybody hoping to develop increased dexterity and character as a guitarist and improviser. Each of these is cleverly and purposefully devised to improve skills across a range of disciplines including finger-work, musical vocabulary, as well as understanding of both fundamental and complex harmony. Playing and studying these masterful compositions also highlights and reveals the author’s truly immense knowledge and love of both his instrument and his craft."

- GABRIEL LYNCH, SINGER-SONGWRITER
