Inside each book are 17 units with exciting, original compositions by Jeff Coffin, carefully designed to reinforce these concepts. The included CD has both demo and play-along tracks featuring a world-class quartet of Jeff Coffin (tenor saxophone), Victor Wooten (bass), Roy "Futureman" Wooten (drums), and Chris Walters (piano). This method makes approaching jazz articulation easy and fun.
