"As a pop musician, I was interested in how jazz musicians think to create their sounds on the piano. This book explained it quickly and easily and I am now able to add jazz influences to my music with ease."

-Brett Shurman, Pasadena CA

"There are a lot of jazz chord voicings books out there. What is different about the Rob Mullins book is the explanations are quick and easy, and its not just a book of voicings. There are over 100 pages using the voicings over basslines and all kinds of blues and other chord progressions with the great voicings in there as well."

-Mario Tse, Pasadena CA

"I will be recommending this to all the keyboard players who come through our store."
