Inside Improvisation Series Volume 4
Time and rhythm play an important role when playing or listening to improvised music. All notes seem to sound good when they are played with good time. Even melodies that use wrong notes sound good when played with good time. What often packages a good time feel are the rhythms a particular artist chooses to use. This book hopefully lends some insight into practicing and playing creative rhythms in a melodic way. The CD provides 10 standard chord progressions, each played in two different tempos, featuring: Bruce Barth (Piano) · Dave Santoro (Bass) · and Adam Nussbaum (Drums). In addition, Jerry demonstrates various approaches and exercises on Tenor Saxophone.
