Each book concentrates on one concept and explores various combinations of note groupings, rhythms, metric level, melodic range and density. There are 12 études, one in each key, which can be played over a variety of chords. These études range from highly diatonic to non-diatonic examples, depending on the organization of the material.

- I’ve been looking for information on this contemporary approach and I was both surprised and happy to run across both Set Theory for Improvisation Ensemble Method: Hexatonic 027 027 and the Set Theory for Improvisation Ensemble Method: 027 016 book. It’s not so easy to find any publications that helps you apply pitch class set theory in an improvisational setting. These études really gave me a lot of ideas on how to solo. Very impressive. R. Thoms
- I think these Set Theory for Improvisation books are great! I’ve been using the book for sight reading and I’ve also been stealing some of the melodies and using them in my own improvisations. I talked with Bruce and he recommended the Sonic Resource Guide so that I could see all the possible applications of 027 016. I looked up 027 016 and found that it would sound great over -7b5, -7 and 7sus4. I then used the Jam Tracks Volume Three grooves to either read through the études or just improvise with the 027 016. It’s cool that I can improvise over multiple chord types with one pitch class set grouping. So for every idea I have I can apply it in multiple places. Very cool stuff! E. Oleman
- I’m a sax player and recently purchased the Set Theory for Improvisation books and the Sonic Resource Guide. The whole idea behind organizing sound by Pitch Class Sets was new to me but I’m completely into it now. It’s opened up a whole new way to organize sound and apply those sounds in mutiple places. Check this stuff out its is very useful for those that are seeking a modern sound in their playing J. Elifson
