Also includes techniques for melody harmonisation, linear writing and counterpoint for 2, 3, 4 and 5 horns, a chapter on writing for the rhythm section, six complete scores, ideal for analysis or following on the companion CD and an extensive chapter on form and development which deals with extended compositional forms and the use of compositional techniques in writing for the small jazz ensemble.
