This Evolving Bassist is the edition entering into the new millennium, the year 2000. This jazz bass edition will mark 26 years in publication as "the standard" in bass method books. Through the years since this book was first published, Rufus began to feel that a major revision was needed. The fundamental bass lessons have been kept intact because classic concepts do not change. This new edition will include more transcriptions from his recorded solos, original compositions arranged as duets, new etudes, and additional ways to learn tunes and conceive better bass lines. Alfred's Evolving Bassist is designed to take you through instruction that will help you become that consummate jazz bass player. It is dedicated to the student who may have difficulty finding and/or being able to afford a regular teacher. This method book is an aid to help you help yourself NOW. It will also continue to be your reference book as you and your playing mature through the years. You will learn that there is always something more to discover about being a better musician and bass player in this music we call jazz. As one of the premiere bassist of our time, this 30-year veteran is truly continuing to be the Evolving Bassist.

Comments about Alfred Evolving Bassist - Millennium Edition Book:
This book is widely known among instructors. This is not your run-of-the-mill book that teaches you how to make cool slap lines that will impress your friends, this book will train you to master the bass guitar in all aspects. It is even used by professionals today who feel they need to review and refresh their skills. Just within the first chapter of getting your chops down I was baffled at the results. This is THE book to get. You WILL BE SATISFIED with the results.
