Jazz Duo Playing with Art Lande & Khabu Young Workshop - February 24, 2018

Art Lande & Khabu Young Workshop

Saturday, February 24, 2018: 

10:00 am - 12:00 pm - Jazz Duo Playing

We will explore many aspects of duo playing within the context of jazz and open improvisation for all possible combinations of instruments & voice. We'll pay special attention to the harmonic complexities of guitar & piano, and how the same considerations may apply to both chordal and melodic instruments alike. We will delve into topics such as flexibility in role playing between soloist/accompanist, bass lines/inner voices/upper melodies, opening forms to add improvisational windows, time feel, freedom of interplay. Participants will play together with Art & Khabu and with each other to work with questions arising directly from the musical environment.
