"Jeb, being as thorough as he is, came up with this unique idea showing how the great jazz pianists accompanied or “comped” behind soloists. He has done the homework for aspiring jazz piano players. Thanks to Jeb Patton.”— Jimmy Heath, jazz saxophonist, composer/arranger, NEA Jazz Master
"This is an incredibly valuable aid to anybody who has tuned into the amazing legacy of a very special field in jazz known as "comping." This is the first of its kind; a treasure in my opinion. And, it's coming from a guy who has been in the trenches, writing from his experience playing on the bandstand.”— Monty Alexander, jazz pianist
"This book is about to become an immeasurable bridge in the hope of keeping real Jazz alive in the future. Jeb is putting his love of the music out into the world in such an immediately accessible, universally useful way.”— Benny Green, jazz pianist
"This book fills a huge need. Comping is an often over-looked area of piano playing by young players. Jeb Patton is a terrific pianist who has written a book that will, no doubt, become an essential resource for pianists and piano students for generations to come.”— David Berkman, jazz pianist, author, educator
