Jazz Saxophone Improvisation

Improvising with the Diminished Scale

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device. Multi-touch books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device. Books with interactive features may work best on an iOS device. iBooks on your Mac requires OS X 10.9 or later.


In this ebook, I will show players how I like to think about the scale in terms of resolutions in ii-V settings and also how, by it’s construction, the diminished scale is easily transposed and applied to all twelve keys. As you will see in this book, the diminished scale perfectly outlines the tritone relationship between two sets of chord progressions, which is one of the most important, if not THE most important, concept in modern jazz harmony.
