Five lessons on comping, solos, comping with a bass line & “Oleo”

Mastery of the blues and rhythm changes are "critical elements for building a jazz repertoire". In jazz, rhythm changes, are a modified form of the chord progression in Gershwin's song "I Got Rhythm", which forms the basis of countless jazz compositions. These changes were later popularized by early bebop musicians. They became extremely common in the 40s and 50s, and are now ubiquitous. Many songs have been written over the "I Got Rhythm" or ”Rhythm Changes” (a type of composition known as a contrafact.)

Five lessons including explanations, a comping arrangement, a transcribed solo, comping with a walking bass line, jazz head “Oleo”. 105 minutes of video with PDF in tab, notation & grids plus practice tracks.
