Modern Jazz Improvisation Part 2

Part 2 of Modern Jazz Improvisation examines, in depth, three chord progressions similar to those in tunes by Kurt Rosenwinkel, Ari Hoenig, and Jonathan Kreisberg.  Like Joe Henderson’s “Inner Urge” (explored in Part 1 of Modern Jazz Improvisation ), these chord progressions include both plateau and vertical modal styles, but unlike their predecessor, they feature new challenges typical of many modern jazz compositions:  extended harmonies, odd meters, meter changes, and unusual phrase lengths.

Modern Jazz Improvisation part 2 covers:

  • Brief recap of the concepts covered in Modern Jazz Improvisation part 1 (viewing part 1 first is highly recommended)
  • Detailed harmonic analysis of three modern jazz chord progressions based on compositions by Kurt Rosenwinkel, Ari Hoenig, and Jonathan Kreisberg
  • Exercises to gain fluency through quickly-moving harmonically unrelated chord changes using various techniques:  scale tone voice leading in seconds and thirds, voice-led arpeggios through chord changes, wide interval patterns, triad pairs, odd note groupings, and polyrhythmic note groupings
  • Discussion of soloing on chord progressions with odd phrase lengths, with written example
  • Discussion of soloing on chord progressions with changing time signatures, with suggestions for practice and example backing track
  • Suggested strategies for gaining fluency with soloing on tunes with odd meters and changing meters, with numerous written examples
  • Three full-length example solos: “Sight from St. Petersburg,” “Rogue Bovines,” and “Blackjack,” based on the above three chord progressions, and demonstrating all of the concepts covered in parts 1 and 2 in a musical context
  • Running time: 112 minutes
  • 20 pages of written examples, exercises, and solo etudes, in standard notation and tablature, with close-up views of the demonstrations
  • MP3 backing tracks for all written examples and solos, including full-length track for improvisation practice
