"One of the best jazz piano books I've ever seen -- very easy to understand." Kenny Barron

"One of the most complete anthologies on jazz piano in recent years. The research and attention to detail, the nuances and musical examples in each chapter are most refreshing, as are the photos. Stylistically covering artists from Teddy Wilson through Mulgrew Miller, in a way that has rarely been dealt with in other jazz piano literature." JAMES WILLIAMS

"'The Jazz Piano Book' is a comprehensive text (with) in-depth explanations supported by many superb musical examples in every chapter. A comprehensive text (with) smooth progress from easy material to more advanced techniques." JAZZ EDUCATORS JOURNAL

"This book comes closer than any other book I have yet come across to giving the student an insight into the art, and needs, of playing modern jazz piano. With the comprehensive exploration of all the basic techniques in common use that this book offers, along with the inclusion of chapters on such important and often overlooked areas as comping and Latin Jazz, I think this book deserves a place on every modern jazz teacher's bookshelf."
