An in-depth study of the melodic minor scale and its use in jazz. By hearing it and learning to use it with many different chord types, seemingly difficult chord progressions can be simplified and an expanded harmonic/melodic vocabulary will result. With workouts and examples and practice advice, the author shows how to apply the melodic minor scale and its modes to various chord types including minor chords, half-diminished chords, dominant 13th chords, altered dominant chords and major 7th+5 chords. He also applies it over progressions such as minor II-V-Is and discusses the use of the Passing Tone Scale in improvisation. Bk/CD, 118 pages
