Surprisingly, few studies have been made that address the possibilities of musical scales. This book is, to the best of my knowledge, the first of its kind to establish and examine a complete system of all conceivable scales. My intention is that this book be used as a reference tool for all musicians, as it provides a complete dictionary of all possible scale configurations.

About the Author:

Masaya Yamaguchi is not only a musician but also a conceptualist who established his own system to explore the imaginative formation of musical scales by The Complete Thesaurus of Musical Scales, which is a meta-contribution to music pedagogy of a high standard. Jazz Education Journal wrote, "Its worth mentioning that this book comprehensively covers all theoretical possibilities in constructing scales July-August 2002." The concept is revealed in many of his writings and compositions. Because of the reference value of his outstanding achievements, Marquis Whos Who has selected his biographical profile for inclusion in Whos Who in America, Whos Who in the World and Who's Who of Emerging Leaders.

Review:

A research reference book on scales, The Complete Thesaurus of Musical Scales encourages the imaginative formation of scales that bridge between tonal and atonal music. In an attempt to focus attention on note combinations from 2 to 11 notes, the author uses the term subset throughout the book instead of scales. The author classifies the chromatic scale as a superset. It's worth mentioning that this book comprehensively covers all theoretical possibilities in constructing scales, and the author stresses the importance for an improviser to understand all of the scalar possibilities and their applications. Take this thesaurus of musical scales seriously, and you will not be disappointed in the options available for jazz improvisation. by Dr. John Kuzmich, Jr., Senior Columnist --Jazz Education Journal
