The Modern Jazz Quartet was a jazz combo established in 1952 that played music influenced by classical, cool jazz, blues and bebop. The band performed over a forty-year span with only one personnel change. For the majority of their career the group comprised John Lewis (piano and musical director), Milt Jackson (vibraphone), Percy Heath (double bass) and Connie Kay (drums). The paradox of the MJQ's music-making was that each individual member could improvise with an exciting vibrancy while maintaining the precision and collectedness of a classical group.

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.

Genre: Jazz

Mercoled 27 aprile, il concerto di Francesco Bearzatti con una "Special Edition" del Tinissima Quartet che oltre allo stesso Bearzatti al sax tenore e clarinetto, vedr sul palco: Giovanni Falzone, tromba, Danilo Gallo, contrabbasso, Zeno De Rossi, batteria e ospiti speciali, Mauro Ottolini, trombone e Enrico Terragnoli, chitarra. Tinissima non un classico quartetto jazz (almeno per me) ma una vera band, una "combact band" consacrata alle biografie musicali di personaggi che si sono battuti per gli ultimi, per gli emarginati, per i "non aventi diritto".

This collection of hit songs from the middle of the 20th Century is sure to tickle the nostalgic fancy of baby boomers. However, the jazz-infused arrangements and virtuosic instrumental solos will appeal to jazz and popular song fans of all ages. Even as more jazz musicians are stretching the meaning of The Great American Songbook, to take hit ballads by one-name rockers like Sting, and Clapton and iconic bands like The Beatles, The Eagles and Steppenwolf and make them your own in a contemporary jazz context is not an easy feat.
