The book is divided into two hierarchically organized parts. In Part I, the various Melodic Shapes for creative writing and improvisation serve as the important aesthetic substance. In Part II, materials quoted from John Coltrane and others are integrated in a fashion convenient to improvisers who seek the technical proficiency of an instrumentalist. Admittedly, the beginning of Lexicon of Geometric Patterns for Jazz Improvisation was already revealed in Chapter IV of my other book Symmetrical Scales for Jazz Improvisation (Masaya Music, 2006). Over the course of a decade, however, I have developed my ideas into the more intelligible format shown in this book, so that even musicians who have difficulty conceiving of dissonant melodies may learn to create their own patterns to be used in improvisation. Dedicated to David Liebman and Dr. Lewis Porter, who have improved the quality of jazz education remarkably.

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.
