    All humbleness set aside, I'd like to shamelessly recommend the following 3 improvisation methods (books/CDs) I wrote to help people know where to start;-)

    Forget it ! If you want to play jazz, you have to learn with Mark Levine's books first, and use  all the Aebersold's ..........

    Los tres son muy buenos pero si tuviera que quedarme con uno me quedo con el de Marl Levine.

    I agree that Mark Levine's books are very well written and thorough! (I have them in my collection, and some of my advanced students use Mark's books after or in conjunction with mine). You do need to know quite a bit about music theory, chord building, and have a pretty good background and piano skills to get the most out of them.
