KIRKUS REVIEW

As in his Flute and Violin books Berger gives beginning musicians a modest boost by introducing the history, manufacture and repertoire of their chosen instrument. His look at how reeds are made and evaluated and a rundown of the various members of the clarinet and saxophone families will be most useful here. There are several pages of discography, listing jazz as well as classical performances, but the omission of Charlie Parker from a chapter on famous players is a good indication of Berger's lack of interest in jazz. Photos.
