Jazz Improvisation: The Goal-Note Method (Book with CD)

Composed by Shelton Berg. Jazz Improvisation Method. Method book & CD. Published by Kendor Music Inc (KN.20855).

Item Number: KN.20855

Shelton Berg's programmed text for a 2-4 semester improvisation course. This approach is consonance-based, emphasizing structural pitches and harmonic considerations rather than scale-derived melody. This logical, step-by-step method is based on the premise that when consonant tones are surrounded with characteristic jazz formula, successful jazz improvisation results.

  • November 05, 2005 A Great improvisation Book!

    This book demystifies the improvisation process. Most improv books use too much scale-based and tonal center oriented instruction whereas this one uses the approach that makes the most sense and creates the most inteligent sounding improvisations: chord tones (and their extensions) and consonance vs. dissonance. Mr. Berg carefully describes...

    each chord type and how it is usually used in jazz tunes and then tells the student ways to improvise over that chord type. Throughout he describes standard jazz formulae and how "Goal Notes" can be surrounded by idiomatic jazz figures. This book describes how it is REALLY done!
