A Look Into Reharmonization
Reharmonization is one of the most sought after, yet complex musical subjects in modern music. Guitarist Steve Giordano shares his insights, both philosophically and practically, with a complete walk-through of his very unique re-harm treatment of jazz standard “Stella by Starlight”. The video opens with a full blown live performance with trumpeter Bob Meashey, as the duo interactively explores their way through this intriguing re-harm offering. In Part Two, “Why Re-Harm?”, Steve gives a thorough explanation on the vague subject of reharmonization. In Part Three, “Aesthetic Choices”, Steve walks the viewer though the piece, explaining in depth, the choices and how they relate to the original harmonies.
