Derek Bailey Improvisation : Its Nature and Practice in Music
Da Capo Press | ISBN : 0306805286 | 160 pages | PDF (scan) | 145 MB

Derek Bailey's Improvisation, originally published in 1980, and here updated and extended with new interviews and photographs, is the first book to deal with the nature of improvisation in all its forms - Indian music, flamenco, baroque, organ music, rock, jazz, conemporary, and 'free' music. By drawing on conversations with some of today's seminal improvisers (including John Zorn, Jerry Garcia, Steve Howe, Steve Lacy, Lionel Salter, Earle Brown, Paco Pena, Max Roach, Evan Parker and Ronnie Scott) Bailey offers a clear-eyed view of the breathtaking spectrum of possibilities inherent in improvisational practice, while underpinning its importance as the basis for all music making.

I assume this has got audio examples, with such a high file size. I'll check it out, THANKS!

UPDATE: It does NOT have audio examples, it's just an un-optimized raw scan with most pages turned sideways, etc. For my convenience (and yours) I fixed the problems and present it as a 25 meg download:
