I also have an extensive online jazz improvisation lesson series available at: http://www.beginningsax.com/Jazz%20Improv%20Lessons.htm. The lessons are organized in Stages I-IV for players of all skill levels, and a Soloing on Tunes series that is great fun as well. Some of the lessons are saxophone specific, but most of the lessons work well regardless of your instrument. Many of the lessons include play-along tracks created by some of Atlanta's best jazz musicians.
