"Interesting guide to developing easy to play box forms for a wide variety other than just the pentatonics. I recommend it, but it is very condensed."

"I highly recommend Jeff Brent’s book, ‘Piano Rootless Drop Voicing 251s’ to anyone looking to develop greater facility and understanding with this essential jazz piano basic chord progression. Each voicing/progression is written in all 12 keys with no chord symbols, so the reader has to analyze (it is worth the effort).
All student levels including advanced level students will benefit mightily from Brent's approach, which includes a full presentation of drop 3 chords and drop 2 chords in both major 251s and minor 251s and delivers virtually all facets of 251 progressions and voice-led chord extensions (they sound beautiful).
Brent also includes left hand voicing of 251s using three-note chord/progressions that are derived from the original drop-note voicings. Given the fundamental nature of these progressions to all aspects of jazz piano playing, this comprehensive and powerful book is an inspiring keeper that will yield benefits time and time again."

"This book is organized exactly the way I like it. No interpretations of examples on how to use the information within a song. Just the facts! Love it. "

" The descriptions allude to the physics and mathematics of the scales, and concepts of consonance and dissonance . . . certainly stands out in the world of instructional material. "

"Putting the mystery into mastery - his method requires some mental (as well as finger) shifts. If you can crack the 'da Brenti' code, it will be stimulating."
