outof print Joe Morello books
« on: June 28, 2015, 12:39 PM »
I have an opportunity to bid on a couple of out of print books by Joe Morello. My question is about one in particular. It's called "Off The Record", is it worth bidding on? If it's a good book why is it out of print? Any feed back would be appreciated.

Here's some info about the book:

I used to have a copy about 30 years ago, have no idea what happened to it. I mainly remember the solos, which are transcriptions of Joe playing on those tunes. I would go for it.

Thanks for the information. As it turns out I was able to score the book from another source. Which is just as well as I always get carried away when bidding on EBay.
The book is fantastic, it contains nine very accurate( to my ear ) solo transcriptions
plus many four measure breaks. I love this book, somebody should get it back in print.
