"Another vocal improvisation masterpiece by Bob Stoloff! Clear, cutting edge and comprehensive, Bob is truly revolutionizing vocal jazz education with his 'Instru-Vocal' approach. This book is so much more than just a vocal improvisation method. It's a powerful educational tool for jazz singers on the path to becoming well rounded and deeply evolved musicians. Few educational vocal methods are so holistic in their approach, combining vocal practice with theory, ear training, intensive rhythmic work, instrumental concepts, and more. I think this book will be fantastically helpful for jazz singers." - Michele Weir.

"Vocal Improvisation is a treasure trove of accessible and practical information for anyone interested in the art of vocal improvisation. With so much detailed instruction and so many exercises - for both soloists and groups - singers at all levels will be lucky to have this fully realized book as their oracle. I've always been a big fan of Mr. Stoloff. Hopefully, this book will help you jump on the Bob bandwagon too!" - Peter Eldridge, New York Voices
