Das Jazz Theorie Buch ist wohl das umfangreichste Werk seiner Art. Es ist ähnlich aufgebaut wie der vom selben Autor bei Advance Music erschienene Bestseller Das Jazz Piano Buch und genauso praxisbezogen. Theoretische Sachverhalte werden immer anhand musikalischer Beispiele und Transkriptionen von berühmten Aufnahmen der Jazzgeschichte erklärt. Von den theoretischen Grundlagen wie Intervalle, Akkord/Skalen-Theorie (Dur, Moll, Vermindert, Ganzton, Bebop, Pentatonik etc.) über die II-V-I Verbindung, Blues und Rhythm Changes bis hin zu Salsa und Latin Jazz werden in 24 Kapitel alle wichtigen Themen ausführlich behandelt. Daneben enthält das Buch nützliche Information über die Interpretation von Lead Sheets (Melodie mit Akkordsymbolen), eine ausführliche Repertoire-Liste mit Quellenangaben und Hinweisen auf Play-Along-Aufnahmen und eine Diskographie. Vier höchst interessante Kapitel mit mehr als 100 Seiten sind dem Thema Reharmonisation gewidmet. Titles: Teil I Theorie: Akkorde und Skalen * Teil II Improvisation: Das Spielen über Changes * Teil III Reharmonisation * Teil IV Das Repertoire * Teil V Sonstiges.
