Here's the link to my new book at https://www.forrestsmusic.com/X-1252-PDF.
It's called JAZZ TRAINING FOR BASSOONISTS. It contains my personal jazz transcriptions of solos over standard jazz forms such as rhythm changes, blues, bebop, modal Blue Note jazz. It's the next level of education for bassoon players-you'll really enjoy it!
HERE is the LINK for my book TECHNIQUE STUDIES FOR JAZZ IMPROVISATION in PDF form.
I'm so glad to have found a way to make this book available in this manner. It has sold over 1000 copies since I wrote it ins 2003.
Hey there! I'm currently scheduled to perform in Basel, Switzerland at the Birdseye Jazz Club May 4,5 and near Zurich on May 6th, 2021-if COVID will let us. Really-I want to be safe-I'm halfway vaccinated-but it's not on me-it's on the situation that's currently going on in Europe. We will see! Hope we can do it!
I've had a few other performances with Vitamin EM-follow them here:
