“For the young musician, Randy Hunter has put together a well thought out, comprehensive series of jazz study books dealing with the feeling of music.  How things should be played and studied melodically, rhythmically and harmonically from an early age, which is the key to developing one’s own approach to improvisation and ensemble playing. These books: Introductory Etudes and Duets Book 1 are not just filled with exercises and patterns for a change! Thanks Randy.”
