    "Along with the major seventh and flat nine, the extensive use of the interval of the fourth was a 20th century development. Coltrane, McCoy Tyner and Chick Corea popularized its use in jazz in the 60s. Wil's book is a great tool to get this technically awkward interval under your fingers." - DAVE LIEBMAN is a master tenor and soprano sax player in the style of John Coltrane. He worked with Chick Corea, Dave Holland, Elvin Jones, and Miles Davis, among others. 'Fourth Obsession' is a very welcome addition to the study of one of the most important intervals in music. Bravo!" -GARY BARTZ, alto and soprano sax and clarinet. Besides being a bandleader since 1960, he has worked with jazz greats like Charles Mingus, Miles Davis, and McCoy Tyner. “Wil’s book ‘Fourth Obsession’ provides a great method for exploring the realm of perfect fourths. Fourths provide a strong structural framework for chromatic, tonal, and atonal melodies. Great for improvisers in any idiom.”... More > -GARY CAMPBELL, Associate Professor of Jazz Performance/Saxophone at Florida International University, has published five highly acclaimed books on jazz improvisation. "‘Fourth Obsession’ is a superb scholarly approach to a difficult but important subject. It is a tremendous contribution to the jazz community for studying and practicing fourths." -EMILE DE COSMO, teacher, musician, jazz clinician, author and publisher of "The Polytonal Rhythm Series."< Less
