Basic/intermediate. This nearly two-hour long DVD features Jamey at the piano explaining and demonstrating the fundamental techniques used by all great jazz improvisors. Topics covered include chord/scale relationships, keeping your place, patterns, the blues and pentatonic scales and their application, what and how to practice, articulation, memorizing songs, and much more. This DVD not only provides the technical information essential to getting started on improvisation but also serves as an overview of the entire creative process in terms that even a non-musician could understand. Jamey also provides much needed motivational material and discusses the philosophy of man's need to be creative. A complete presentation! This DVD is closely aligned with the world famous Volume 1 How To Play Jazz and Volume 24 Major and Minor play-a-longs (see related items below.) The visual, hands-on demonstration makes their concepts easier to grasp. Jamey even plays along with tracks from those two play-a-long volumes, showing proper application of scales to chords and essential practice techniques.

  • July 05, 2007 How to start to improvise from scratch.

    Even if I can apply different scales over different chords, having some number of musical phrases etc , I still found something to think about... As for me, Mr. Aebersold acting like your personal teacher, honest and exact raccomendations regarding WHAT, WHEN and HOW to practice and perform. And how to...

    start to improvise from scratch. I'm gonna watch this DVD ones in a while again and again.
