The Autobiography of an Ex-Colored Man

First published anonymously in 1912, 'The Autobiography of an Ex-Colored Man' is James Weldon's Johnson fictional account of a young biracial man living in America during the second half of the 19th century and early part of the 20th century. The so-called 'Ex-Colored' man makes his living as a jazz pianist playing ragtime music at a popular New York club. It is here that he catches the attention of a wealthy white gentleman who takes a curious interest in him and employs him to play at his parties. While he becomes friends with the man a feeling of subservience reminiscent of slavery prompts him to part ways. He travels to the south where he intends to work on his music in an attempt to glorify the artistry of his race. After witnessing a terribly horrific lynching he abandons his desire to embrace his black heritage opting instead to 'pass' as a white man. 'The Autobiography of an Ex-Colored Man' masterfully explores the complexity of race relations between whites and blacks in America and the search for racial identity by one of mixed ethnicity. Through the experiences of its unnamed protagonist the issues of class, race, and discrimination are discussed with an openness uncommon to literature of the time, and which would establish it as a pivotal work of the Harlem Renaissance. This edition is printed on premium acid-free paper.

Uncommon Etudes from Common Scales
34,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Uncommon Etudes from Common Scales will better equip students and challenge improvisers of all levels with etudes that travel through all keys using common chord types. Also, expand your melodic and creative ability as an improviser and composer by applying Contrast to diatonic phrases! The etudes are suited for C, Bb and Eb treble clef instruments. The appendix features the changes for all etudes in the correct transposition to accompany Bb and Eb instruments. This volume of etudes by Mike Rossi is packed with appealing, swinging, modern, modal, model melodies. Like Dr. Rossi’s previous volume, “Contrast and Continuity,” this is a further contribution to learning contemporary jazz vocabulary, based on swing articulation and occasionally venturing into odd time signatures. Although intended for individual practise as preparation for soloing, selections from these etudes were performed by saxophone ensembles accompanied by rhythm section at recent jazz education conferences I attended and they sounded great. Like worthwhile etudes in every tradition, Uncommon Etudes focus on particular instructional outcomes while revealing the musical insights of a thoughtful and talented composer. Prof. Darius Brubeck, Honorary Research Associate, University of Kwazulu-Natal and IAJE Board: Africa/Middle East Representative. Following in the footsteps of his acclaimed “Contrast and Continuity in Jazz Improvisation,” Michael Rossi has crafted a book of etudes that are, at once, as educationally stimulating as they are musically fulfilling. A scintillating approach and a valuable addition to every improvising musician’s resource library! Chuck Owen, University of South Florida Distinguished University Professor Artistic Director, Center for Jazz Composition President, IAJE. Uncommon Etudes is the secret and cure for students and pros alike when practicing scales in all keys. These etudes are firstly MUSIC and also FUN to play. Combined with the etudes is Rossi´s unique Contrast concept, which transforms already hip-sounding, scale-based phrases into a multi-coloured CREATIVE sound and language. The “virtual” chord changes found in the appendix, allows concert instruments the opportunity to comp for transposing instruments, another excellent addition to an already great book. Ulrich Süsse Composer. Once again. As he did with his last book, “Contrast and Continuity in Jazz Improvisation,” Mike has been studious in presenting material that is beyond the theoretical, but has practical and immediate use as a means of adding vocabulary to one´s playing. David Liebman. “Uncommon Etudes from Common Scales” by Professor Mike Rossi is a comprehensive addition to the field! This systematic method challenges, and intensifies, creative improvisational development utilizing melodic and rhythmic contrast. Exploring harmonic applications and related phrase development are strongly encouraged and integrated to internalize and expand the improviser´s perspective, fluency … and musicality! Dennis Tini, Distinguished Professor of Music Co-Founder, Jazz Studies Program, Wayne State University-Detroit Past President
