Modern Jazz

Tutor: Phil Hargreaves

We will be spending a week examining Jazz soloing over chord changes in a Post-Bop context, using lightly arranged 'Heads' with chords provided in appropriate keys for Bb/Eb/Concert Pitch and Bass Clef. I have acquired a book of Jazz tunes by women composers, so we will be looking at some of those. I have also started playing with Latin Nuevo Cancion group, so we may well be doing a couple of those tunes as well.


I am best known, to the extent that I am known at all, as a free improviser. If you are interested in this area, let me know, and we will try and organise some free playing in some other space in the timetable.
