Wayne Krantz: An Improviser's OS (2nd Edition)

from Wayne Krantz

Sheet Music

Fifteen years ago, musician Wayne Krantz released an unconventionally entertaining music theory book, “An Improviser’s OS,” through his website, waynekrantz.com. Frustrated by traditional methods of learning and teaching scales and chords on the guitar, Krantz had come up with a system of practice that increases scale and chord knowledge without compromising the creative elements that make the knowledge musically relevant and applicable. “An Improviser’s OS” was a summation of that system, as well as being a creative handbook which recognized the potential irony of a creative artist concerning themselves with the math of music.

Subsequently the book became available through the Abstract Logix portal and since then has enjoyed an ever-renewing readership of music students of all ages and levels, worldwide. “An Improviser’s OS” has been translated into Japanese, with a Spanish translation currently under consideration.

Now, Wayne Krantz and Abstract Logix are pleased to announce the release of “An Improviser’s OS v.2”(2019). Almost a complete rewrite of the first edition, Wayne Krantz has clarified all the book’s core instruction, while adding significantly to it with knowledge and experience gained since the first edition’s publication in 2005. Making a respectful distinction between lick playing and creative improvisation, the book reinforces the power of spontaneity in the meeting of mind and spirit promised by contemporary improvisation.

“An Improviser’s OS v.2” is an essential handbook for anyone seeking to expand their vision creatively through music or other means.

Wayne Krantz is a musician, guitarist, composer, bandleader, recording artist and educator currently living in New York City. Along with 10 releases as a leader, he has performed and/or recorded in the bands of Michael Brecker, Steely Dan, Chris Potter, David Binney, Billy Cobham, Donald Fagen, Carla Bley and many others. He has been a faculty member of NYU/Steinhardt and the Berklee College of Music and has given many clinics and workshops worldwide. See www.waynekrantz.com for more information.
