JAZZ SCALES EXPLAINED IN 10 MINUTES (the end to your confusion)

-[ Julian] How’s it running guys? Julian Bradley here from the Jazz Tutorial YouTube channel. I hope you’re doing well. And in today’s video I’m going to answer a common inquiry which I get, which is, “Which scale should I play with each chord form, “and how can you tell which scale to play “with each chord type? ” Now, often, you’ll get a jazz piano volume, and you’ll “re going to the” back of the book, and it will roster a load of magnitudes, and it will say, “When you see this type of chord, play this scale, ” but it won’t actually explain how this works. So personally, I never look at the back of the book to appreciate which scales they indicate. Personally, I like to figure it out from scratch, and I do it merely using a simple principle which I’m about to show you...

Musical Ear Advice: More help with Intervals-Chirn Park Jazz ,Gold Coast @Taste Restaurant

Great night with Malcolm Capewell on the Baritone Sax playing at Taste Restaurant on The Gold Coast .

Today I have a member question:

“I can’t hear the difference between whole-steps and half-steps, major 3rds and minor 3rds etc.

I’ve been practicing with interval-trainer apps but without much success.

Do you have any tips?”

Here’s a new exercise you can use to improve your interval recognition:

Practice Tip:

Go to the piano and play a C.

Now try to sing up an interval – let’s say a half-step.

Sing the note, and then test your answer by playing a Db.

Then do it again – sing up a major 3rd from Db.

Sing the note, and then test your answer by playing an F.

Then do it again – sing down a whole-step from F.

Sing the note, and then test your answer by playing an Eb.

And keep doing this f...

What Makes Jazz n Blues So Cool?

In a word – improvisation.

jazz  n blues performance is like setting up a musical base camp. Once this is established at the beginning of the piece, each musician is free to wander off to explore – but always, eventually, returning to base. Variations on the theme. The heart of jazz n blues

It’s the goal of each musician in a jazz n blues band to take you with them on their improvised journey; to show you how they do it. And then, of course, to bring you back from the wilds of their imagination to the others at base camp; back to the theme – a little wiser and a little more fulfilled each time.

To experience jazz n blues live is to experience the music being created before your very eyes and ears. Miles Davis called it “the birth of the cool”...
