Artistic Director, American Roots Music Program

"A wonderful and helpful work that will instruct young players who are learning about playing traditional jazz. Also a great refresher for musicians already established and playing this style of music."
Grammy-winner, Bandleader, Multi-instrumentalist
Vince Giordano and The Nighthawks

"This is the absolute next best thing to stalking world-class jazz musicians and pestering them until they allow you to sit in."

"This is the perfect way to get into playing jazz in a group. For players wanting the basics, it’s absolutely accurate and gives you an idea of what’s to come and what’s required to be a part of a group. For advanced players, it offers jamming with established pros, an ideal way to practice and learn. This is for all instrumentalists who want to be a part of our music, from traditional on up."
Pianist, Composer, Arranger
NEA Jazz Master

"You're IN The Band is the next-best thing to actual on-the-job training. It's an extremely practical and efficient way to learn how to play in a traditional jazz context."

"The perfect vehicle for any aspiring traditional jazz musician…An absolute bargain."

"A hell of a lot of fun…. The play-along section is Habanera Hot...Very well worth the nominal investment."

"I applaud the care with which you crafted everything! I love the simplicity of the lead sheets, leaving room for more advanced players to expand the harmonic options, and the accompaniment tracks are exactly what they should be. What a wonderful piece of work, and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to work on trad jazz, soloing, accompanying, or playing in the ensemble. Bravo!!"
Director, Sacramento Traditional Jazz Camp

"You’re IN The Band really delivers the goods in every way."

— Doug C., Maryland

"My new best friend arrived by postage this week! The book and CD's so meticulously and magnificently produced by you is a gold medal winner! I'm thrilled to be jamming with the best in the solace of my own living room. Life doesn't get better than this...guaranteed fun!!!"
— Ginger C., Connecticut

"I wanted you to know how pleased I am with it. You obviously put a lot of thought into it and I am finding it not only very useful and instructive, but a whole mess of fun. My band couldn't believe you even thought of including charts in Bb and Eb."
— Don W., Alabama

"I really liked the variety of songs and the ability play solo with them. I had never played with a banjo before."
—Joseph C, 13 years old, Chatsworth, CA

—R.L., Vermont

"I am really enjoying YITB. I am learning new tunes to go along with my other lessons. I like the modern twist. This program is fun and different from other choices out there."

"Wow, what job you've done on the play-along. Applause is not adequate. You deserve a standing ovation."
—Sheila W., Illinois

"YITB, even though it's recorded tracks and not live jams, is REAL performance ear training, along with a huge amount of stuff they truly did not teach us in music school. Now you know why I'm so excited about it. Thank you!"
—David L., New York, NY

"I really love the information in the beginning of the book, and as a moderately inexperienced player, it was nice to be able to hear and see the music. The idea is great, and it helps me keep time, practice soloing, and strum consistently."
