This dark experimental hip hop themed pack features an eclectic assortment of samples that sound as if they could have been recorded while exploring the terrain of a distant planet.
”We're going to examine and solo over many of the most popular progressions found in the jazz songbook. We'll work through 10 soloing studies, playing over the changes to 10 very popular jazz standards. In each study we'll focus on a specific improvisational approach. For example, we'll focus on connecting chord tones over progressions used in tunes like Autumn Leaves, develop a melodic statement for a study based on progressions used in Sentimental Journey, and work on arpeggio patterns used in Bernie's Tune. We'll apply riff-based approaches for a blues, chromaticism and arpeggio extensions, study connecting chord tones, work on popular bebop Bossa nova progressions, examine the Flat 9 in a minor key with a touch of blues, and even apply a chord melody approach.”
For each of the 10 soloing studies, Frank will first perform the solo over the jam track in its entirety, and then break it down for you note-by-note emphasizing the essential techniques and concepts in play.
