The goal of Volume 2 of Modal Jazz Composition & Harmony is to continue the dissemination of information that presents a path of study for the aspiring jazz composer. Where Volume 1 of the book emphasized the preparation of a modal harmonic foundation, this volume will introduce concepts of melody writing and a study of the styles of jazz compositions that are an intrinsic addition to the contemporary jazz composer´s repertoire. Also included are chapters on harmonization and reharmonization techniques - as many of the concepts presented reflect an influence of Gil Evans, Duke Ellington and Charles Mingus as well as those of Herbie Hancock - and on pentatonic tunes that are harmonized with a modal harmonic foundation. As with Volume 1, an appendix with additional peripheral information is included for the student desiring theoretical explanation and additional examples.

Jerry Coker´s Creative Nudge is an HGH (human growth harmone) for jazz musicians - only legal and void of dangerous side effects. It is an improviser´s steroid that stimulates artistic growth by refocusing energy into specific areas of study and practice. Coker speaks candidly to all jazz musicians - from beginners to advanced players - in a manner that is structured, but not pedantic; conversational, yet impassioned. Its 63 pages contain wisdom gleaned by a life dedicated to and enriched by jazz improvisation.-- Steve Crews, master Jazz Pianist and member of the Jamey Aebersold Jazz QuartetI´m all of one chapter into this pamphlet and am blown away by the positive nature of Coker´s outlook. I am so glad I bought this and cannot put it down!-- Rick Schrenker, Jamey Aebersold Jazz customer from MassachussettsI love your new book! I just read it and really identified with much of the book - particularly melodies and tunes in my head all day & night. I have also always felt that the pinnacle of playing is not a performance but the practicing. I get a lot more pleasure practicing that I do performing - often because it´s my escape into a world all my own and my performances don´t compare to what I play at home. I also loved the aesthetics chapter and couldn´t agree more. You really brightened up my world! Your teaching guidelines mirror your love of teaching and should be guidelines for all of us! You continue to inspire!-- Rick Simerly, jazz trombonist and Summer Jazz Workshops faculty memberExplores the hows, whats, and whys of practice, performance, technique, and musicianship.
