A Creative Approach to Standards pt 2: Nobody Else But Me Class Content | John Stowell
In Part 2 of their conversation, John and Jamie use “Nobody Else But Me” (Jerome Kern’s last song) as a context to discuss variations on standard diatonic harmony and the use of the melody as a way to internalize form and create motific solos.
