I’ve always enjoyed that book. A lot of those phrases can be heard in players like Phil Woods (who played lead alto with Oliver Nelson). It’s just full of great nuggets. I used to play through them for technique, but also used to change the shapes, adding pick up notes and changing rhythms etc. A lot of the phrases move by half steps and it’s fun to move them around by different intervals. I like that there are no chords marked as it gives you the chance to imagine different roots under those lines. They’re pretty common shapes, and it’s fairly obvious what chords are being implied anyway.
It’s just a very melodic book.
