    Hello to everyone, I recently bought the John Patitucci Master Class dvd and I have to say that it's very interesting, although John doesn't play very much. One thing I was wondering: what's the title and author of the book John mentions (chapter 13, 1:14:12) when he explain a little bit of soloing using triads? I'm not an English speaking person :bag: and I thought I could ask you guys for some help. Also, does anyone here know that book?

    In that spot you were asking about Patitucci mentions triad pairing and a book by Walt Weiskopf. On the Jamey Aebersold Jazz site there are two books in the theory section by Walt Weiskopf. Here is a description of the one I think it might be:

    Title: "Coltrane: A Player’s Guide To His Harmony"
    Description: Book by Walt Weiskopf and Ramon Ricker
    Coltrane’s landmark composition Giant Steps used a new harmonic formula. This book examines it in detail as well as Countdown. Also, contains practice exercises and solo examples plus, how to use this new harmony over standard harmony. Also available in French and Japanese.

    Sorry, I don't know how to make a link to the Jamey Aebersold website. :help: I probably can't make a smiley happen either - it just says help. Oh well....
