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

Jazz players tend to be good sharers and good listeners--the qualities are virtually obligatory in often spontaneously conceived ensemble music. And the respect that the best players command can frequently be measured by the behavior of their fellow professionals in the audience. Bob Berg, the lean, flint-featured American saxophonist, often received that kind of attention. Berg's particular skill was the kind of high-energy, tenor-sax style that became ubiquitous after the 1960s, an avalanche of hard-edged sounds, dissonant high-register brays and a dense, accumulative melodic approach. Berg's technique, though not the equal of his contemporary Michael Brecker, was good enough to avoid emphasizing the idea that any of this was an effort (thereby relieving it of grandstanding effects) But, like Sonny Rollins (whom he often resembled), Bob Berg's unaccompanied soliloquies and intros could be among his most remarkable achievements--a little drier and less inclined to quotation and irony than Rollins, but almost as full of heart and surprise. Berg had developed a saxophone style ideally suited to a groove-based but melodically freewheeling music, Through it all, Berg's solos combine clear virtuosity with vivid thematic construction. Eminently accessible without sacrificing integrity, Remembering Bob Berg serves as a bittersweet reminder of a loss that, sadly, is greater than many truly realize. This book covers new concepts regarding post-bop and cut-ting edge jazz improvisation in a practical way. It is aimed at intermediate to advanced students. It provides new tools for performance in contemporary jazz improvisation. It covers all of my previously published books and adds brand new exercises and line phrases form transcriptions. Chromatic, linear, intervalic, arpeggios, extensions and passing tones in accordance to the chord and scale at any given time are included. Each exercise is transported to be played in all 12 keys. Always remember, JAZZ IS ALIVE.

Jazz has been around for over a hundred years but how much do we know about its history, and how much of what think we know is true? Beginning in the so called Jazz Age of the 1920’s jazz history was recounted and interpreted by admiring authors and record collectors both in the United States and elsewhere. However, since the early 1990’s some historians have come to doubt the validity of the conventional narrative of the story of jazz and some of its most hallowed traditions. In Jazz Historiography: The Story of Jazz History Writing Daniel Hardie uncovers the course of jazz history writing from early Jazz Age American and French publications to Academic texts in the 2000’s, and seeks answers to questions about the accuracy of those accounts and the influence they have had on our understanding of jazz history - even the impact they might have had on the course of jazz history itself. How much for example did the work of jazz historians influence the course of the New Orleans Revival? Was the appearance of bebop in the 1940’s a revolutionary response to oppression experienced by Afro American musicians in a commercialized popular music industry, or was it an attempt to mirror the development of classical music of the time? How has the development of University jazz studies influenced the writing of jazz history?
