For all musicians jazz piano voicings

" ... Comping for an imaginary soloist, as is done on the Aebersold play-a-long recordings, can be a tricky business. It is ... easy for the comping to turn into a piano chord solo which is far too busy and cluttered up rhythmically or melodically. The soloist is left with no space in which to play. The goal [is] to supply the harmony and play something that feels good so that any soloist will be comfortable playing with the prerecorded rhythm accompaniment. The problem is that the element of interaction is removed. Since there is no soloist playing as the track is recorded, there is no possibility of reacting to rhythmic or harmonic elements that [one] might employ. [Dan Haerle's] approach is to comp as though [he] were an arranger creating a sax or trombone background behind a solo in a jazz band chart ... A good background would generally have some melodic interest (though restrained) and would sound the harmony to support the solo. Also, there would be enough rhythmic life in it to inject some energy into the music and hopefully stimulate the soloist ..."--Dan Haerle.

Release Date: 2015-02
Genre: Music

Motives---also referred to as motifs, licks, or clich�s---are the building blocks of a good jazz vocabulary. This book shows how motives may be developed using simple five-note major, minor, and diminished scales and how to apply chromatic embellishment to those scales. The "magic" appears when you discover that any motives created from these scales may be superimposed over a variety of chords with equally good results. Includes detailed explanation and pages of motives in a variety of harmonic situations, including standard chord changes. Also included is a CD of practice tracks with play-along parts in the book transposed for all instruments. Expand your creative universe! Over 100 pages.
