For many, the story of jazz guitar begins with Charlie Christian. In 1939, at 23 years old, Charlie joined the Bennie Goodman Sextet, already one of the most famous jazz bands in the world. Over the next two years of his all-too-brief life Charlie redefined the role of jazz guitar, expanding it from its role in the rhythm section to that of lead instrument on par with the great horn players. Simultaneously, his late-night jam sessions alongside Thelonious Monk, Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker, and Kenny Clarke at Harlem´s renowned Minton´s jazz club led to a revolutionary new jazz called Bebop.To best understand Charlie Christian´s approach to improvising, for each song this book provides multiple examples of his soloing. Comparing and contrasting these different solos---taken from alternate takes, various recording sessions, and live radio broadcasts---will give you a better sense of not only Charlie´s core concepts, but also how he developed a variety of ideas out of them. Each song is presented with performance notes that include information about the recordings (date, place, personnel, etc.), a lead sheet for the composition, and transcriptions of the live and studio performances placed in chronological order---in both standard notation and tablature. In addition, there is a full analysis of his improvisation style to give you ideas on what to look out for. We´ve also included a bio, a discussion of his gear, and tributes from over 30 jazz greats.Featuring multiple solos from:As Long as I Live * Benny´s Bugle * Boy Meets Goy (Grand Slam) * Flying Home * Gone with What Wind * Good Enough to Keep (Air Mail Special) * Honeysuckle Rose * I´ve Found a New Baby * Rose Room * The Sheik of Araby.
New WaveNew Wave is built from musical materials which are similar to many of the extended harmonies and modal structures found in jazz. The first movement is set in a driving 6/8 rhythm with extensive imitative counterpoint between the saxophone and the piano. The middle movement begins with a short cadenza-like passage from the saxophone leading to transparent ethereal presentation of themes, followed by a heavy, dark section. The final movement gradually builds to a dramatic, optimistic conclusion with an infectious, driving rhythm.

Piano Rags8 Ragtimespianocomposer: Porter, LarryÉditeur: Schott MusicISMN: 979-0-001-18934-7Difficulté: intermediatepages: 36N° d´édition: ED 21465Larry Porter (*1951), American jazz musician and composer, wrote ´Piano Rags´ for the love of ragtime and as playing literature for his piano pupils. Four of the pieces are inspired by memories and impressions of America. When writing the pieces, it was the composer´s aim to come up with something new and original while maintaining formal and stylistic elements of the ragtime. Despite giving free reign to his creativity, Porter honoured this extraordinary more-than-100-year-old genre. Fantastic pieces for entertaining piano lessons and little concerts.Contenu - Crab Apple Rag - Athens County Rag - Classical Rag - Garlic Rag - Grand Slam Rag - Homesick Rag - Peace March - The Penny Arcade
Tim´s a struggling black kid on the mean streets of Newark. How far can he run? Where can he hide? What is innocence? Where does it go? Tim doesn´t read as well as his classmates in an inner-city Newark high school. He´s got good street creds, though, riffing strange rap-rhymes and running like the wind. He´s packed into a three-flat with his mother, sister, and Uncle Gentrale. His father, a drunk, recently walked out on the family, wanting some ´´freedom´´. He says, ´´Ahgottahandleonit, son´´. He doesn´t. Nor does Tim. He´s a sophomore, already two years behind in school. He´ll be a sophomore again if he doesn´t pass his proficiency exam. He wants to do what is right, but anger boils deep inside him. The last day of school before summer, Tim slaps Mr. Jones, the one teacher who has wanted to help. He doesn´t know why. It was just there, a rage born of some dark history. Uncle Gentrale tries to explain, some crazy shit about living back down South. Marie reaches out to him for love, but that doesn´t work, either. In a fight with some gangbangers, the rage boils over, and Tim slams Chucky in the head with a rock. Chucky dies. Tim steals his phone. He carries it, like an albatross, throughout the summer - wanting to run, to hide, to speak truth, to be free. Maybe Mr. Jones will understand. Tim wants his life to matter. Donovan Mixon is a jazz guitarist and a former Berklee College of Music professor. He moved to Chicago in 2010 after an extended sojourn teaching in Italy and Turkey. Ahgottahandleonit is his first novel. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Brad Sanders. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/030524/bk_adbl_030524_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
