Chris Potter Jazz Styles

This book is a summary of exercises and jazz improvisation lines designed to improve contemporary jazz style techniques. The book is divided in scale, arpeggios, chromatic exercises and jazz lines phrases from Chris Potter. These exercises should be transposed to all twelve (12) tones, so we can achieve perfect coordination. Major, minor and dominant chords, extended to their highest level, scale wise, arpeggios and chromatic passages. There are none signature centers, so all these exercises will be worked accidentally. This project is an extension of my last three methods of improvisation: * Improvise Now *220 Chromatic Exercises + 1165 Jazz lines phrases *Herbie Hancock lines voicings and rhythms from transcriptions. *John Coltrane & Michael Brecker Legacy

Deluxe Anthology Of Jazz Violin Styles

For more than a century, violinists have played jazz, swing, blues and similar improvisational styles. With its rich tone, considerable range, and bowed rhythms and phrasing, the violin offers a unique opportunity for a creative and personal statement as a musician. This book presents a broad sampling of the styles of major jazz violinists, from blues to bebop, from jug band to jazzgrass, from big-band swing to Texas swing. Tunes represent the styles of Stéphane Grappelli, Joe Venuti, Stuff Smith, Eddie South, Mark O'Connor, Benny Thomasson, Jean-Luc Ponty, and Darol Anger. Helpful jazz theory sections with exercises alternate with tunes that show how the theory works in practice. This book has two objectives; first, to present a broad, roughly chronological sampling of major jazz violinists and the styles associated with them, and secondly, to introduce the basics of jazz theory as applied to the violin. Whether consciously or intuitively, through critical listening or by practicing jazz patterns and exercises, the more knowledge of jazz you acquire, the better you will be able to think about the content of your playing without being bound by technical and theoretical aspects. This anthology was written to help provide that foundation. Interspersed with pragmatic jazz theory lessons, you’ll find 28 original tunes in the style of various jazz violin luminaries. The book ends with an extensive discography of recommended jazz recordings with a violin focus. Mandolinists as well as other instrumentalists will find a wealth of useful information in this outstanding collection. Delightful broadcast-quality recordings of the repertoire are available online.
