The Scale Omnibus

What the pros say:
THE SCALES OMNIBUS is a precious resource for all musicians, devoted to musical scales from all latitudes, from the very popular to the most mysterious ones. I often find myself consulting this useful textbook together with my Conservatory students, whenever we have a doubt or look for inspiration. – Teo Ciavarella, pianist and teacher at G.B.Martini Conservatory (Bologna, Italy), played with and/or recorded with George Garzone, Paolo Fresu, Hiram Bullock, Gerry Mulligan, Eddie Gomez, Henghel Gualdi, Lucio Dalla.

THE SCALES OMNIBUS is an unbelievable collection of all known scales and related sound possibilities. Every scale is a journey in a “world” that sounds different and opens up countless opportunities for improvisers, composers, and performers of any music genre. This book is a stimulus for your creativity, by unveiling new musical landscapes, in a simple way. For a jazz player it is the quick and exhaustive answer to many questions. A complete research work that required a huge devotion, it’s shimmering gold. – Gaetano Partipilo, alto and soprano sax player, teacher at Siena Jazz University, played and/or recorded with Nguyên Lê, DeeDee Bridgewater, Robin Eubanks, Mike Moreno, David Binney, Gianluca Petrella, Fabrizio Bosso, Stefano Bollani.

I believe that THE SCALES OMNIBUS is the most interesting book about scales I have ever read. Over the years I had a look at many books on this topic, yet this omnibus is by far the most complete one and the one that goes deeper. In fact, I decided to go back to studying scales and their combinations with a fresh new approach, and used this book as a motivation for new roads in improvisation and, above all, composition. – Javier Girotto, soprano and bari sax player and music educator, played with Danilo Perez, George Garzone, Bob Moses, Orchestre National du Jazz (Paris), Enrico Rava, Stefano Bollani, Paolo Fresu and many others.
