Please also read my review of Emily's swing-bebop instructional video: many things apply here too. In this intermediate to advanced lesson you learn the fundamentals of the Brasilian latin rhythm, get hints on embellishing your chord progressions and receive an explanation of how she improvises melodies over major, minor and dominant chords. Real masters don't overwhelm you with complicated things, they put it simply. That's what she does here. Now, 30 years later her technique is more known. If you already had the chance of meeting a good teacher or finding a decent manual, you will hear familiar things. In her time this was not so evident. Last but not least, she plays two extra pieces that allow you to analyse her art in full detail. Again: highly recommended if you are serious about learning the jazz guitar.
