What exactly are the steps that lead to ability?In which order should they been taken?What will be required to master each one?These are questions the author has explored in this book, resulting in a rather unique one-thing-at-a-time approach to studying improvisation - one that incorporates discipline, technique, creativity and musical intuition. Each topic is explained and demonstrated using written musical examples and it is accompanied by suggested exercises and a sample daily practice schedule, which can be modified to fit your own needs or liking. The book has been used by the Performance Studies Department of the Berklee College of Music in Boston for teaching improvisation since September 1988.
Should I?This piece originated from my days in Boston in the mid 1980s as a graduate student and as part of the New England Conservatory Honors Jazz Ensemble, which performed music from across many wide ranging styles. Good interaction amongst the rhythm section is crucial. If you have a guitarist or electric keyboard/s in the rhythm section, feel free to incorporate a range of electronic effects in order to change textures. Changes in dynamics within the rhythm section is of prime importance. Think of music from the Miles Davis groups and albums of the late 1960s and early 70s such as In a Silent Way, Bitches Brew, and On the Corner. This Jazz-Rock piece has plenty of room to stretch out over the two key centers of A7 (alt) and Eb minor. The melody should be played with a straight eighth-note feel with attention to the accented (>) and capped (^) notes at Letters A and C. Watch the change in dynamics starting one beat before Letter D until the end of the form. At Letters B, F, F1 (the bridge of the form), the rhythm section shifts to a 12/8 African feel. The interlude at Letter I happens only at the end of each solo form. Note - The solo/ensemble interlude at Letter E1 follows a 16, 10 (8+2), 16 bar form which is different than the solo form at E-H. The interlude at Letter E1 was written to assist soloists with material to play or draw from during solos. Should I? can be heard on Beauty and the Blues (MMC2045J) with jazz greats Billy Hart, Rufus Reid and Tom McKinley.Nombre de pages :44
