Paul Edis says...

Hi All,
I found the website of Pete Cook - a sax player who was the head of jazz when I was at college, and I thought I'd let you know about it.
There is a blog that contains 'Cookies thoughts', here is one that I read about the 'last note lottery', but there is also a series of podcasts freely available for anyone interested at all about jazz harmony and improvisation ideas etc. I contacted him, and he's keen for anyone to use it and give him feed-back. A fantastic resource for budding players I reckon.... Here's the blog. http://web.mac.com/petecook/Site/Blog/Entries/2010/8/28_The_Last_Note_Lottery.html Here's the podcasts http://web.mac.com/petecook/Site/Podcast/Podcast.html
