Does anyone have any experiences with this study, positive or otherwise? I'm thinking of spending some time with it.

...well I may have to give it another go. Very interesting way to go about it, esp. the SINGING part. Thanks for posting, TimTim Price said:Regarding Volume 5 of Bergonzi's Thesaurus of Intervallic melodies.
What jerry suggested to me to start this book was take the first ten pages and sing them over a C major triad, then over E major and Ab triads then some minor triads, this way the ear accepts the harmony rub. He also suggested as you play these, key in on the intervals that you like, think of it as an intervallic highway non patterns, then try over the open vamps take some lines and play them across the vamp then even try it through a blues like for instance there are some play alongs in the back. Check out one of the blues and start to play some lines over top of it. From the first ten pages....his words were play it across the changes eg. the changes are in one lane you're in another going past the changes but not necessarily in the same lane as them.
Anyhow it's a great book it makes a lot of sense and I hope what i said helps.

Anything that expands the ear is a good thing, Its probably exactly what I need to dive into in fact.
The two tables on page eleven comprise a two stage mapping of pitch change directions and intervals (minor 2nd, 2nd, etc.) and are used to create a five-note line.JimD said:The arrows I can understand but those arrangments of ABC and D are not explained and don't seem to apply to what is written on the staff. You also have a set of letters and numbers at the top of the page and then a whole different set above every set of 4 or 5 notes. And what do they mean anyway?

barge on the way to the islands. Talk about a Slow Boat to China!
I can't wait for my head to ex/implode.
