Berklee Jazz Harmony

Berklee College in the US appears the be the place to study jazz. Not cheap and not particularly convenient if you're from the UK. David Valdez on his excellent blog, Casa Valdez Studios, has kindly pointed us to some PDFs for the Berklee Jazz Harmony course. Very handy. Get 'em while they're hot. Quite interesting for me as I studied jazz harmony with a tutor called Amit Sen who attended the Berklee course and last I heard was Head of Jazz Composition at the Royal College of Music in London. I now know that when I mention modal interchange and get blank looks that I'm not repeating the musings of a crank teacher and that it is a legit concept (or at least the musings of some well respected cranks!)
