Ever listened someone's tracks and wanted to know how they were thinking about their music?
Looking for some new ideas or solutions to old improvising hurdles?
Can you find your way around the changes and your instrument, but are struggling to make you improvising sound melodic or 'intentional' enough?
Hi all. I love this whole jazzmatrix action. And I have been meeting sme great musos out there because of it. So I thought I would, from time to time, when time permits, make available some of my thoughts on improvising and concepts i am working on or concepts that have helped students of mine in the past. FREE!!!
So I'm not going to rave on too much this time round and I'll just give you a freebie right now.
This lesson solves one of the most common problems people have with their jazz improv. And that is phrasing their ideas. Rounding them off. Communicating their ideas like sentences in a story rather then a series of semi related ideas. This is one approach that very quickly will get your solos sounding more like you meant it, more like you have a plan and more like you are referencing the song you are playng over.
So enjoy ... And PLEASE give me some feedback if it helps you at all.

This is now the correct link. There was an earlier error. Whoops.
