"Here's a great idea, extremely well executed, fun to play, exciting and, dare I say, educational.  If you want something to help you develop modern rhythms - this is it!"

(Keyboard Player)

"immense fun - discovering styles of music that I really didn't think I was capable of playing, and it's really inspiring too...This is the first book I've come across that covers the subject of playing modern styles on the keyboard and, quite frankly, as a guide, it would be hard to be better. Full marks!"

(Keyboard Review, April 1995)

"Never again need you confuse your salsa with your samba, your jazz funk with your ordinary funk, or your doo-wop rock with your heavy rock...a lot of fun lies in store..."

(Music Teacher, January 1995)
