In Jazz Lines Joe Pass discusses the scales and arpeggios he uses when improvising. Joe also demonstrates non-stop improvised lines for: major 7th, minor 7th, static and altered dominant 7th chord types plus a special section on turnarounds. Get insight into how Joe 'thinks' while improvising. The DVD includes a booklet with all of the video examples transcribed on the treble clef - with absolutely no tablature. If you live off of tab then I wouldn't recommend this video, but if you can read music there is a wealth of information to study and learn from. Joe breaks everything down to its simplest form - major, minor, or dominant. He covers everything very quickly and then goes to the examples, which he gives plenty of. However, if you're hoping for some chord melody tips or counterpoint examples you'll be disappointed with this video - it covers exactly what the title says: Jazz LINES. He does speak a little bit in the beginning about how he views chords but he doesn't go beyond that.
Dixieland, sometimes referred to as hot jazz or traditional jazz, is a style of jazz based on the music that developed in New Orleans at the start of the 20th century.
