Review:

When future beings unearth the artifacts of our culture, The Berklee Book of Jazz Harmony will stand out as the most complete summary of modern diatonic harmony used in jazz and popular music of this era. This book is detailed, sophisticated, and surprisingly hip. I especially enjoyed the chapter on the blues as well as how the authors noted the effect of beat placement on harmonic choices. This sentence struck me: 'We can hear and feel a chord operating one way when it arrives, but our interpretation of that chord can also adjust retroactively.' The book is replete with similar descriptions giving this complicated subject a life of its own, beyond the usual mathematics and terminology. --Dave Liebman

The Berklee Book of Jazz Harmony is eminently readable and user-friendly. The authors present the principles of jazz harmony and chord scale theory clearly and invitingly. --Keith Waters, jazz pianist, theorist and author of The Studio Recordings of the Miles Davis Quintet, 1965 68

Clear, thorough, and practical, The Berklee Book of Jazz Harmony is indeed a welcome key to understanding not only the richness and order of jazz harmony, but also the many musical styles deeply touched by jazz harmony's broad influence. --Michael Rendish, Founding Harmony Chair, Berklee College of Music
