I have added a new Art Pepper transcription to www.scooby-sax.com
This solo comes from my favorite period in Art Pepper's career. The Lester Young influence is apparent with a strong emphasis on melodicism.
The solo is available at Transcriptions

The ESSENCE RADIO SHOW
Host Kara Johnstad
"People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don't even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black curious eyes of a child, our own two eyes. All is a miracle-" Thich Nhat Hanh - Vietnamese Monk, Activist and… Continue

PARIS • Musée du quai Branly • 17 March - 28 June 2009

Introduced to the world by trumpet star Tomasz Stanko, Marcin Wasilewski’s piano trio is becoming hailed as a world-class unit in its own right. ECM record-buyers love their albums and believe fame would have come sooner had these Polish musicians not borne such difficult names for Western Europeans. To some British shoppers, Wasilewski, Slawomir Kurkiewicz (double-bass) and Michal Miskiewicz (drums) read like the bottom line of an optician’s… Continue

Edward Kennedy "Duke" Ellington was the most prolific composer of the twentieth century in terms of both number of compositions and variety of forms. His development was one of the most spectacular in the history of music, underscored by more than fifty years of sustained achievement as an artist and an entertainer. He is considered by many to be America's greatest composer, bandleader, and recording artist. The extent of Ellington's innovations… Continue

A friend of mine recently took a lesson with a teacher who advised him to practice his piano performance of a song for a solid hour, blowing over the changes in time, without pausing to re-work a passage. This requires him to constantly seek and find new ways to improvise over the same changes. I've tried this and it invariably produces new and surprising results including more and more adventurous exploration of the tune in addition to a firmer familiarity with the changes. I also enjoy… Continue

“The more I get, the more I want – it seems.”
It seems so with my brief study of Jelly Roll Morton. As did Mr. Barker say previously: “I'll have to take a whole chapter on Jelly Roll.” Dear reader, while I have endeavored to roll deep with Jelly's journey – but for this month of May – I have been greatly distracted by my own issues of survival. Thus will I attempt to wrap up a few loose ends and hopefully make some constructive points which seem to loom in what Mr. Barker is holding… Continue
