I decided to name this room based on the idea of dealing with musical involvement in all its' aspects within the context of the forum itself.I'd like to invite anyone who wants to get info about improvisation,specific styles of jazz piano,voicings,melodic concepts,transcription, harmony,theory,composition,practice routines,online sources of educational materials,and related subjects to post here and I'll try to give as complete a response as possible when I can;and send you over to Scot,Barry,7,Ryan,Mike,Whacky,Albetan,et al for more info(or when I think you're asking about something they'd be better suited to reply to!)
