Jazz, a collective improvised music, makes an excellent candidate for interactive media. Featuring alto sax master Phil Woods, Jazz Tutor Vol. 1’s sometimes-overwhelming program combines improv exercises, a jazz-theory reference book, tutorial lessons, and play-along selections. It’s generally well organized, though it could have benefited from help balloons and a more linear structure. Anecdotes from Woods and performances by his quintet add fun, though Jazz Tutor seems oriented toward the serious student who already has some chops. B+
