MONTY ALEXANDER SAYS: This is an incredibly valuable aid to anybody who has tuned into the amazing legacy of a very special field in jazz known as complimenting or comping for short. This is the first of its kind; so this is a treasure in my opinion. And, it s coming from a guy who has been in the trenches, writing from his experience playing on the bandstand. --Private correspondence
BENNIE GREEN SAYS: This book is about to become an immeasurable bridge in the hope of keeping real Jazz alive in the future. Jeb is putting his love of the music out into the world in such an immediately
accessible, universally useful way. --Private correspondence
RENEE ROSNES SAYS: Brilliant pianist Jeb Patton has created an insightful and definitive book on comping. The
subject is explored from all angles including a thorough study of rhythmic and voicing styles, and it contains plenty of written examples and suggested listening to go along with the text. There really is no other book like it, and I ve no doubt that An Approach to Comping: The Essentials will be an indispensable guide to comping for generations of jazz pianists to come! --Private correspondence
