Inside Improvisation : vol. 5Practicing out of this book by just reading the melodies has changed and expanded my playing, says Jerry Bergonzi. He offers a number of suggested uses and applications for this intervallic system including ear training, composition, improvisation, improving technical facility, intonation, sight reading, breaking finger habits, and pitch retention.This book is accompanied by a play-along CD with 19 tunes as well as 8 vamps featuring Jerry Bergonzi and Allan Chase, saxophones (soprano, alto, tenor, and baritone); Renato Chico, piano; Dave Santoro, bass; and Tom Melito, drums. The intervallic system presented in this book is a means for creating original lines and themes - a modern thesaurus of intervallic melodies. Each page concentrates on three, four, or five specific intervals. Combining these intervals with all of the possibilities for moving in ascending or descending direction creates an infinite variety of very distinctive melodies. Although these melodies were composed independent of any particular harmony they can sound quite effective when played over chord changes. Chord changes and heads are included for C concert, Bflat, Eflat, and bass clef instruments.
Time and rhythm are king! Number one! We are constantly aware of this fact when we are playing or listening to improvised music. All notes seem to sound good when they are played with good time. Even melodies that use wrong notes sound good when played with good time. What often packages a good time feel are the rhythms a particular artist chooses to use. This book hopefully lends some insight into practicing and playing creative rhythms in a melodic way. (Jerry Bergonzi)The CD provides 10 standard chord progressions, each played in two different tempos by Bruce Barth on piano, Dave Santoro on bass, and Adam Nussbaum on drums. In addition Jerry demonstrates various approaches and exercises on tenor saxophone.
Inside Improvisation : vol. 6Learning a language requires listening on many levels to the meanings, the sounds, the intentions, and the inflections or nuances of the language. The first chapters of this volume on learning the language of jazz focus on the prerequisites of chord scales, approach notes to chord tones and target notes, scale motives and sequences, and lines.Part two qualifies improvisational techniques into three areas; melodic, harmonic and sonic (rhythmic devices are the focus of Vol. IV, Melodic Rhythms) and it is designed as a menu of soloing devices from which you can select your personal course of study. Over 100 specific devices are discussed and conceptualized so as to give the improviser more depth of expression and a greater well from which to draw ideas. Among the numerous topics presented are: guide tones, voice leading, chord substitutions, three tonic system for composition, tritonics, hexatonics, tonal expansions, whole tone playing, augmented symmetric scales, double diminished scales, limited range and large range playing, shapes, blues melodies, accents, comping as a soloing device, common tones, articulations, laying back on the...The CD contains twelve standard chord progressions, each played in two different tempos.Renato Chicco - pianoDave Santoro - bassAdam Nussbaum - drums

By fully mastering each step along the way, a reliable structure is established which can always be called upon to support your growth.

Reading Key Jazz RhythmsWith this book/CD set you will learn essential jazz rhythms first-hand from world-class professionals ! Reading Key Jazz Rhythms is a collection of 24 easy to medium level jazz etudes, and 24 simplified guide tone versions of the etudes. They are ideal for learning the basic language of jazz, swing phrasing, and articulation. A perfect tool for preparing for the jazz ensemble or for any other ensemble/orchestra which performs jazz related music (f.i., pops orchestras, musical, studio, movie scores, concert and marching bands, etc.). Each etude is based on a specific rhythm or a combination of rhythmic figures. Some etudes sound like very lyrical improvised jazz solos, while others are more like a melody to a standard. On the accompanying CD the soloist demonstrates the 24 melodious etudes together with a professional rhythm section. You can also improvise along with the play-along tracks using the chord symbols. The guide tones are the essential or defining notes for each given chord type. So if improvising is new to you and you find yourself getting lost, you can always return to a guide tone and play ryhthmically around it. Any etude and its corresponding simplified guide tone version can be played together as a duet (with or without the CD accompaniment) with your teacher or a friend.Nombre de pages :68
