Randy continues his series on jazz standards and takes you step by step through the chord changes to Stella by Starlight in this class. He highlights and demonstrates the difference in chords used by Herbie Hancock and Bill Evans. After a performance of the song, he reviews the chord changes and demonstrates various ideas on voicings and constructing solo lines.
Concepts include simplifying the half-diminished chord and tetrachords. In addition to presenting various chord options for comping, Randy also presents the melody with chords. Then he takes a measure or two at a time and shows different approaches to soloing.
This is a very hands-on, practical class that you can apply the concepts of right away.
Chord Block Diagrams and Herbie Hancock and Bill Evans changes included.
Running time 56 minutes.
