Review (Jazz Method Book): Symmetric Cycles by Robert Crawford

As a jazz musician you are always looking for new ways to develop your language and to increase your “vocabulary.”  In checking out Bob Crawford’s Symmetric Cycles I came across a great new method book to help jazz musicians not only build their vocabulary, but see chords and harmony from a different perspective.  He has insightful ideas and helpful exercises to more thoroughly develop your language and give you more facility in your improvisational quests.  


Musician, composer, producer, and author Bob Crawford is a veteran of the music industry with Latin Jazz, Rock and R&B credits stretching back over 30 years.  He has worked with Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award Winner Larry Harlow along with Phoebe Snow, McFadden and Whitehead and many others.  His book Symmetric Cycles is also featured in longtime publisher Jamey Aebersold’s website.
