ANNOUNCEMENT for BOB CRAWFORD’S NEWLY PUBLISHED MUSIC THEORY BOOK

                                           ”SYMMETRIC CYCLES”  

NEW TOOLS FOR ADVANCED IMPROVISATION AND COMPOSITION FOR ALL MELODIC INSTRUMENTS

Announcing the release of  Bob Crawford’s newly published John Coltrane/Pat Martino-inspired music theory book "Symmetric Cycles" (Foreward by Mick Taylor -Rolling Stones/John Mayall) by RMCO MUSIC/Charles Colin Publications.

“Symmetric Cycles" offers new ways of stretching the melodic and harmonic boundaries of Modal Jazz, Blues, Pentatonic Rock, Latin (Montunos, etc.) Reggae, World Music, etc., creating sound colors that will open your ears in ways you may not have experienced before. It also is extremely useful compositionally--connecting chords in very unique ways, adding emotional sound colors to original musical works. As a teaching tool, I believe it to be very valuable for advanced students as well as seasoned players.

The "Symmetric Cycles" site offers a preview of several pages of the book. Here are 2 endorsements of the book by Larry Harlow and Bertha Hope:

“Very rarely does a book on advanced improvisation come to be published that makes sense. Bob Crawford, whom I have had the pleasure to have worked with professionally and known personally for over 30 years, has written just such a book. If you are a true musician and understand “movement of sound” you will certainly learn and enjoy from his newest venture into the world of improvising/composing in “Symmetric Cycles”… Read and learn from this master Guitarist and Teacher.”

Larry Harlow   Lifetime Grammy Award Winner-2008, Latin Music Hall of Fame Member, Pianist, Composer, Arranger, Producer, Bandleader, Founder of the Fania All Stars, CEO Latin Legends, Inc., Lecturer, Music Educator

“Standing on the shoulders of John Coltrane, Bob Crawford's innovative and mathematical approach to improvising and composing makes for one amazing musical adventure. Your diligence in implementing these concepts in various musical styles e.g. Modal, Jazz, Blues, Rock, World, etc. will lift your playing/writing to a higher and brighter level of complexity and sophistication. “Symmetric Cycles”-  a true breakthrough!!”

Bertha Hope-Booker   Pianist, Composer, Arranger, Recording Artist, Bandleader, Music Educator

Symmetric Cycles” can be ordered by calling Charles Colin Publications at 845-680-6880 or through the website. You can preview several pages of the book by clicking on the book cover. Here is the address:    http://www.carosta.com/bob-crawford/

All you have to do is to type in "bobcrawford-rmcomusic" on any of the 3 sites and then click...6 pages of either Bob Crawford, RMCO Music, or both headings (roughly 60 entries) appear...this can drive a lot of traffic to my website which hopefully will result in some sales for my book "SYMMETRIC CYCLES" and my 2 Crossover Jazz albums BOB CRAWFORD/RMCO MUSIC presents: CONTEMPORARY JAZZ CROSSOVER INSTRUMENTALS Vol. 1 & 2.

Bob Crawford--Updating Mary Crawford's condition

GREAT NEWS!! Mary is making INCREDIBLE progress...walking & food shopping (we walked 6 blocks the other day), cooking (she threw me out of the kitchen...lol), sorting laundry, cleaning the apartment, and all the basics of living only 10 days after being released from NY Presbyterian and 20 days after her brain surgery. Her recuperative powers are absolutely amazing...so much so that we cancelled the visiting nurse service and the physical therapist, as she's doing all of the things necessary herself. The only things still on the mend are her hearing on the right side of her head, which is normal, getting better, and will be restored after about 6 weeks), occasional headaches & dizziness (obviously to be expected), fatigue, and her stamina which we're working on daily. The hardest thing for me to do is to make sure that she doesn't do too much...racehorses have to run...it's in their DNA, and Mary is a record-breaking thorougbred used to running free. I'm becoming a Mary Whisperer...lol

Our heartfelt thanks go out to all of the people sending positive healing energies, thoughts, and prayers to us during Mary's incredible ordeal...and for the medical team's amazing skill and diligence. I'm absolutely sure that your positivity affected the outcome of events...she's out of the woods and on the mend. Our gratitude is endless...<3 <3
