I want to thank David Wilken at the University of North Carolina for making this humble blog required reading for his Jazz theory and improv class. I've been working on my search engine but it still kind of sucks. The best way to find old postings is to dig through the archives. I delete anything that's time sensitive, so everything in the archive is still useful to the Jazz student. I've also cut the number of posts that appear when you load the page to speed things up for those on slower internet connections. If you have any questions about any of the subject matter in the new or old posts please go ahead and leave your questions in the comments section. I get e-mails for every comment, no matter how far back in the archive it's from.
