Berklee Press Releases "Bebop Guitar Solos" by Michael Kaplan

Berklee Press is pleased to announce the publication of Bebop Guitar Solos by Michael Kaplan, featuring classic solos by bebop jazz guitar greats Grant Green, Jimmy Raney, Joe Pass, Wes Montgomery, Tal Farlow, and George Benson.

"I’d advise all serious students of today's masters of jazz guitar to take a close look at this collection of transcriptions, as well as Kaplan's analysis of them, for these chosen players were, and still remain, the source of greatness." —Pat Martino

Reminder: Berklee's Smoking Policy

This is just a brief reminder that smoking is prohibited within 25' of an exit, entrance, or open window of any campus building.  In other words, you will be in compliance if you take ten normal paces away from the entrance or open window.

This policy was enacted to better conform to the letter and spirit of state and city ordinances, and to help make the campus more comfortable for the majority of our students, faculty, and staff who desire a smoke-free college.
