Now, Free Jazz arose in the 1960s during the Civil Rights movement, so as African-American people were fighting for freedom on the street, they were also fighting for freedom in music. So even the name ‘Free Jazz’ is a politically loaded term. Now, this isn’t a history lesson so I’m not going to bore you with the details, but you should always keep historical context in mind when listening to any kind of music. And it’s also worth saying that some people doubt whether true atonality can really exist, because if you listen hard enough you can always hear some kind of tonality or tonal centre, even if it’s with frequent modulations.

Autumn Leaves Bio:
Autumn Leaves was composed by the Hungarian-French Composer Joseph Kosma with lyrics by poet Jacques Prévert. Its original title is “Les Feuilles Mortes” which means “The Dead Leaves.” American songwriter Johnny Mercer wrote English lyrics.
The song has an AABA form, meaning the first theme (or section) is repeated, followed by the second theme, and ending on the original theme. It has two common played keys: concert G minor and E minor.
Keep in mind, that if your instrument is not a Concert C instrument (like guitar and piano) you should know how to transpose to your key.
So if you are a Bb tenor sax player, the key Autumn Leaves is in is A minor (a whole step up from the concert key)...Read More

So this is the low-pitched place of the piano, but if we come up to the title we get the high records. Now let’s experimentation with your own piano. I crave you to try this along with me.
Find any key in the high-pitched neighbourhood of your piano and play video games each key one at a time mov...Read More
Hi! Today I’m going to show you how you can play the parlour vogue. The parlour wording are members of my behaviors into jazz music. I really recommend representing these sorts of style because it’s very fun if you make it, and it can entertain a lot of people, if they’re into this kind of music. So, without further a time we’re going to have a look at the right hand today so we’re going to have a look at the wording to seeing how to represented the melody.
First of all, when you play the harmony in this lounge vogue then you make sure that you play the music sometimes in various areas at the piano. Sometimes you’ll play here, and sometimes now, and sometimes now. I like to vary within when I’m playing the music...Read More
