Thanks Dave, This is probably what I was looking for although it was
described as more advanced than this to me. Would you know if Tarto
wrote anything else? Cheers, Ric

If you are thinking of his book on how to play bass lines, it is
still available here:


Basic Rhythms and the Art of Jazz Improvisation, by Joe Tarto.
Written for tuba or bass trombone, string bass, bass guitar, an
excellent basic method for beginning jazz playing, especially in
traditional/ Dixieland styles. Improvising, syncopation, chords,
walking bass, breaks, blues, and Latin rhythms are among the many
subjects covered.

If you are thinking of something else, I don't know...
