Hey guys! I have started a new jazz piano page/blog. I had planned this big project for a long time. This is my idea behind it. Tell me what you think:
My concept of this blog is for it to be a sort of a "House of Jazz Piano" which is divided into a few segments that I call the "rooms". Each will cover a different topic and have a different structure. The "rooms" are as follows: "The Basics", "The Lessons", "The Masters", "Dig the Alphabet" and "Others".
Here is a short introduction to the "rooms":
(Click here (opens in new window) to know more about the "rooms")
"The basics" – Basic lessons on theory and musical structure that you might need for the lessons
"The Lessons"– Still quite basic to intermediate lessons about theory, riffs, licks, bass, soloing, left hand structure etc.
"The Masters" – Profiles and music of some of the most iconic and central figures in jazz piano.
"Dig the Alphabet" –Shorter profiles and music of lesser known jazz pianists. Each session deals with one letter and 3-5 jazz piano artists whose name starts with that letter.
"Other" – Other analysis or other stuff that doesn´t fall in the other "rooms". Perhaps answers to your questions.
I now have a supporting YouTube channel for most of the blog posts. Look below for more info.
So time to join me on the ride to the musical world of jazz piano!
Thanks for reading!

Let me jazz you…
Volume 1 of this educational jazz piano book contains 15 jazz piano exercises, tricks, and other interesting jazz piano techniques, voicings, grooves, and ideas Scot Ranney enjoys playing.
Volume 2 has 14 jazz piano exercises and tricks of the trade, and quite a bit of it is Calypso jazz piano related material, including some Monty Alexander and Michel Camilo style grooves. Jazz piano education is through the ears, but books like this can help.
