Contrast and Continuity In Jazz ImprovisationA Diatonic and Multi-Colored ApproachWhile nearly all great solos contain a delicate balance of contrast and continuity in the broader sense, (rhythm, range, harmonic interest & variation, dynamics, pacing, etc) this concept illustrates the way towards creating a diatonic, multi-colored and contemporary language for jazz improvisation.Nombre de pages :220
Jerry Coker´s Creative Nudge is an HGH (human growth harmone) for jazz musicians - only legal and void of dangerous side effects. It is an improviser´s steroid that stimulates artistic growth by refocusing energy into specific areas of study and practice. Coker speaks candidly to all jazz musicians - from beginners to advanced players - in a manner that is structured, but not pedantic; conversational, yet impassioned. Its 63 pages contain wisdom gleaned by a life dedicated to and enriched by jazz improvisation.-- Steve Crews, master Jazz Pianist and member of the Jamey Aebersold Jazz QuartetI´m all of one chapter into this pamphlet and am blown away by the positive nature of Coker´s outlook. I am so glad I bought this and cannot put it down!-- Rick Schrenker, Jamey Aebersold Jazz customer from MassachussettsI love your new book! I just read it and really identified with much of the book - particularly melodies and tunes in my head all day & night. I have also always felt that the pinnacle of playing is not a performance but the practicing. I get a lot more pleasure practicing that I do performing - often because it´s my escape into a world all my own and my performances don´t compare to what I play at home. I also loved the aesthetics chapter and couldn´t agree more. You really brightened up my world! Your teaching guidelines mirror your love of teaching and should be guidelines for all of us! You continue to inspire!-- Rick Simerly, jazz trombonist and Summer Jazz Workshops faculty memberExplores the hows, whats, and whys of practice, performance, technique, and musicianship.

For All Instruments! By Ben Markley. Learn how to create your own etudes in the style of your favorite players! Doing so reveals their favorite phrases and stylistic tendencies, allowing you to better understand and absorb their approach and concept (plus, you have unique, hip etudes that will be fun to play and share with your friends and students.) Well-known pianist David Hazeltine used this method to develop his own style and refined it over the years to help his students. Now, it is available in book form for all who want to master the art of better phrasing. This is NOT a piano book. This is a single-line approach designed for ALL instrumentalists, including piano.´´David Hazeltine is, quite simply, one of the finest musicians I’ve had the chance to perform with in my two-plus decades as a professional musician. His approach to the piano and his body of work, both on the bandstand and on the multitude of recordings that he has been a part of, place him in a position that is nearly peerless among musicians of his generation, and on a level that truly ranks him, to my ears, among the historical greats of his instrument. Dave is a complete player--flawless technique and execution of ideas, brilliant and daring harmonic awareness, sense of melody, feeling of time and swing, comping, etc., make him a true joy to perform with and to listen to.Over the years, I’ve asked Dave to show me some of his harmonic and melodic concepts. Most times, he’ll present me with a portion of one of his etudes that he’s come up with. I’ve found them all to be tremendously informative. They are crafted in a way that makes the concepts contained in each exercise very organic, and readily accessible to me in my own improvisations. Dave’s meticulous study of the master’s of his instrument has yielded a treasure trove of information. His etudes are designed to maximize the internalization of particular styles and modern Jazz language in general.I’m confident that this book will provide countless hours-- years even--of enjoyment and learning to all who take the time to look into the mind and the learning process of this brilliant musician.”Eric Alexander
