Clinic

“Playing the Heck out of The Minor Blues”

Show More Info

3:15-5:15pm
An important variant of the ubiquitous Blues form, the Minor Blues is one of the most frequently recurring forms in jazz. If you’ve heard Mr. P. C., Equinox, Birk’s Works or the Spider Man theme, you’re familiar with it. The instructor will present the form in a way that makes it easy to internalize, and give lots of practical advice about how to improvise over it. Students improvise (optional but encouraged) and are given feedback, with recommendations given for a direct path to improvement. Student improvisations will serve as a springboard for discussions of the many harmonic variations and possibilities.
Prerequisite: knowledge of the simple I-IV-V 12-bar blues form and basic jazz harmony.
