Testimonials from people who have taken advantage of this source of inspiration.
"The exercises are excellent; the accompanying CD clear and helpful; the
musical material fun. I'd been messing around on my own for quite a
while and had figured out enough basics to fake it for short periods
but didn't know how to expand my reach. Vames' book took what I'd
intuited and put it into a structured and systematic frame that will
make it possible to do in a few months what might otherwise have taken
me years to achieve. Without it, I certainly would never have gotten
much beyond the point I'm at right now. He makes explicit things about
rhythm that I'd felt but couldn't articulate either in language or in
music. I find that liberating."
"John Vames' new book KOKO is written with enthusiasm (I can hear John speaking through the words) and the cd is clear, instructive. I am already up to track 17 and finding out I know more then I thought I did...and that I finally get it."
"I have a copy of John's Understanding the Gift and recommend it to beginners who come to me wanting lessons. Now KOKO is a welcome addition to my music library and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE WHO WANTS TO TRAVEL INTO NEW MAGIC WITH THE NAF."
