Este material presenta la escala pentatónica y sus principales variantes, vista desde el enfoque teórico y práctico del jazz.

Este material presenta la escala pentatónica y sus principales variantes, vista desde el enfoque teórico y práctico del jazz. Incluye: formas de estudio, análisis de solos de Louis Armstrong, Benny Goodman y Johnny Hodges, además un estudio profundo de la relación con los modos de las escalas mayor, menor armónica y menor melódica, así como con otras escalas (Disminuida y Hexáfona). Finalmente incorpora tres estudios escritos por el autor y transportados para los principales instrumentos empleados en el jazz, donde se muestran las principales aplicaciones de la escala pentatónica en estructuras armónicas populares de este género musical.
