More > stories and one novella, Russell Bittner believes that worlds can be discovered and described in a dewdrop, in a teardrop, in a leaky faucet—and that all that’s required is a good magnifying glass, keen powers of observation, and a feel for how language might be made to form a picture in the reader’s mind. NYC—fugheddaboud Brooklyn—is home to scoundrels and angels, derelicts and daredevils, high flyers, low flyers and every kind of flyer for every kind of service one human being is able to coerce, cheat, beggar or beat out of another.

The II-V-I pattern is the most common pattern in jazz music. The more adept you are at playing this pattern in all the keys the better your facility in the jazz language. In the past 20 years I have... More > been keeping a notebook of these patterns. I've tried to limit the ones in this 200 page book to the hippest ones and to strain out the ones that are more popular or overused. In my opinion these are the best II-V-I licks that I've come across in the past 20-25 years. There are 200 licks in this 204 page pdf file.(120 Major Licks and 80 Minor Licks) Each lick is transposed into all 12 keys using Finale and is easy to read.Trust me when I say that these things will keep you busy for a long time but once mastered your playing will improve incredibly.
