(From Bach to Bebop - A Corrective Approach to Jazz Phrasing
Hal Galper demonstrates that by applying tension and release analysis to rhythm, melody and harmony, how Forward Motion techniques are based on universal laws of music first illuminated by Johann Bach over 200 years ago. These laws, based on the physics of sound and rhythm, apply to all music no matter their genre and/or geographical or temporal placement. Galper shows in clear and easy-to-understand terms how music is not static but in motion forward towards rhythmic, melodic and harmonic points in the future.
The book's audience is the intermediate and advanced jazz student.
