A few people on here mention that the Oliver Nelson book is a great resource. I mainly take smaller chunks of licks from transcriptions or listening, then work to incorporate those into my playing. I have had the Nelson book ages, but never really know where to start with it.

So any examples of how you have dipped into it. Any favourite bits. I feel a bit bewildered when I look at all those pages of stuff. I am sure it is a great resource (and freely available online) and a few pointers may open it up to me.

I remember hearing an interview with Doug Webb in which he described playing it cover to cover every day for a while, he said it took him a few hours at first but after a while he could fly through in under two hours.
Amazing. When I have playing through it I just them immediately forget it all. I wonder how much Doug would internalize.
