Andy LaVerne – Learn to Play Jazz Piano Standards
Jun 01 2016
A challenging and rewarding learning experience for all proficient Jazz pianists who want to broaden their vocabulary and improvise more creatively, based around six stunning standards.
Andy LaVerne illuminates the chord changes, voicings, embellishments and improvisational ideas that make the standards come to life. You’ll begin by learning the basic changes, before moving into more complex renditions, demonstrated at half-speed so that you won’t miss a note.
Each song is harmonically dissected, opening up huge potentials in reharmonisation and substitution, as well as providing a solid guide for your own improvised melodies.
Explore six beautiful jazz standards and learn chord changes, voicings, embellishments and other essential tools to broaden your jazz vocabulary. Andy teaches both basic and complex versions of each song while recording it on the Yamaha Disklavier. As he replays the disk at half-speed, he gives a detailed explanation of the music. Andy’s reharmonization (a different chordal structure under the melody) and contrafacts (a new melody composed over the original chord structure) for each tune complete this in-depth lesson from a master of improvisation.
