About the AuthorRandy Felts
Randy Felts has been a professor of jazz harmony at Berklee College of Music for over twenty-five years. He performs regularly on saxophone, flute, and Synthophone in contexts ranging from classic 1960s rock to original jazz and pop music. He is the U.S. representative for Softwind Instruments.
"Randy Felts takes the mystery out of reharmonization. From basic concepts to advanced techniques, Randy's clear explanations and logical approach to an often mystifying subject can help composers and improvisers introduce new colors and rejuvenating energy to their music." - Bruce Ronkin, Chair, Department of Music, Northeastern University
"Felts calls this his 'musical tool box' and he certainly nails it. Beginners or pros will wrench ideas from every page, as Randy hammers home his points with a clarity that doesn't screw up your brain. The well conceived drills will clamp these harmonic techniques firmly to every student, and the many musical examples put together the musical jigsaw." - Richard Niles, Arranger/Producer (Paul McCartney, Cher, James Brown, Joe Cocker, Pat Metheny)
