Flutin' Jazz (Jazz Stix)
For Flute
By John Sands

The flute is primarily a classical instrument, and the majority of players are trained as such, but there are many examples in modern music where a different approach to phrasing is required.  In this volume, you will find exercises to help you in this discipline.  You will also find studies in improvisation, which is an art that most flute players shy away from, yet I have proved over many years of teaching that anybody capable of playing a major scale has the ability to improvise.
