thanks so much for your very nice words, i'm glad that your proof-read our book. tachakkourati al harra.

i have only just passed half way through this wonderful book and would agree with all that 7 says above.  

as an older learner and, as far as jazz theory goes only, i am mainly self-taught with a few lucky odd lessons here and there, so i struggled with some of the concepts although they were well explained.  this could be because of my senior years and/or the fact that i'm just coming out of a six-month course of treatment that certainly affected my speed of thinking for a while.  

some of the material i already knew and understood but the important thing for me was that the book clearly explained the material that i had missed along the way. because of the well explained text i was able to catch up on some of these areas, for example, chapter 7 that explains types of modulations.  7 had kindly helped me out with a question on modulation and after reading this chapter i felt that i understood a lot more about this topic. likewise i grasped a better understanding of material such as minor modes, harmonic analysis and reharmonization. i also appreciated the exercises at the end of the chapters, and those solutions provided

i congratulate the authors and agree with 7 that it should be become
a standard text and should definitely be on the reference shelf of all jazz pianists/composers/arrangers especially at this price.
thank you very much kai, i appreciate lot what you wrote here!
