Von den theoretischen Grundlagen wie Intervalle, Akkord/Skalen-Theorie (Dur, Moll, Vermindert, Ganzton, Bebop, Pentatonik etc.) über die II-V-I Verbindung, Blues und Rhythm Changes bis hin zu Salsa und Latin Jazz werden in 24 Kapitel alle wichtigen Themen ausführlich behandelt. Daneben enthält das Buch nützliche Information über die Interpretation von Lead Sheets (Melodie mit Akkordsymbolen), eine ausführliche Repertoire-Liste mit Quellenangaben und Hinweisen auf Play-Along-Aufnahmen und eine Diskographie. Vier höchst interessante Kapitel mit mehr als 100 Seiten sind dem Thema Reharmonisation gewidmet.
