Has anyone here tried out the Sheets of Sound books by Jack Zucker? Watched a couple of sample lessons on the tube, and it looked kind of interesting.

Yes, I bought the book (are there more than one?) and I found the exercises to be fairly useful, but only as exercises. To me they seem a little dry and not as interesting as Mr. Zucker's playing on YouTube.

I haven't found myself incorporating the exercises into my improvisation, but that's probably just a function of my practice and playing habits. I suspect that we're all different.

I think the book is worth the money, if for no other reason than to give you some new material to practice.

I agree with you. I've found imposible to play those exercises in a live situation.

FYI, the exercises aren't meant to be regurgitated during a tune in a live setting. They're meant to be used as reference material to spur your own creativity and as inspiration to incorporate different concepts into your repertoire.
