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. Here's the podcasts
Paul Edis.
