Hexatonics, is the seventh volume of Jerry Bergonzi's series, Inside Improvisation. Hexatonic scales are six note scales. This book presents a practical method for the construction of hexatonic scales that are useful for both the improviser and composer.

As with the other books in this series, there is a play along CD of 24 tracks (including 5 demo tracks featuring Jerry) to try out all of these different sounds. Band includes Renato Chicco - piano; Dave Santoro - bass;and Andrea Michelutti - drums. Bk/CD, 290 pages
