Probably the most comprehensive book on this subject is Nicolas Slominksi's Thesaurus Of Scales And Melodic Patterns. However, if you're a relative newcomer to this territory, you might want to start with any number of other readily available sources, in book form and/or online.
Dan Haerle has a good book called 'scales for jazz improvisation' which is fairly comprehensive and well layed out. No patterns exercises really, just scales up and down. It's a good reference to have when you are getting started. peace- mike
I love the saxshed site, I just printed off all my scales and the jazz scales. Oh the glories of trying to get back to where I was 4 years ago, when I actually played every day!! (And not just 5 months a year for 4 days a week like I do now with the marching band!)
