Which book is best for my jazz-interested student?

The three main styles of jazz are Swing, Latin, and Rock. All of those styles are represented in the That's Jazz series and every book includes blues tunes. More importantly than genres, however, are the creative principles that go from style to style i.e. embellishing a melody. These are laid out after every tune in That's Jazz on Going Further pages. I always advise everyone, regardless of their level of playing, to start with Book 1. It's technically easy for the most part but skipping it would mean missing these foundational Going Further concepts on which the series builds. More advanced students will sometimes brush off the look of the easier tunes in Book 1 because they are thinking "harder means I'm better," etc. but when you think about it, how difficult is a great standard like "Summertime?" It has hardly any notes. It's what you do with it that makes it interesting. 

Thank you for the making the books and webinars available. It’s doing a tremendous service for those of us who never had an opportunity to learn anything except classical music. It’s definitely going to revolutionize my teaching style and it opens a door to a whole new world of music and a new way of looking at and teaching music theory and history.
