For anyone who's been here before, you are looking at a system that has basically been rebuilt, recoded, and rescripted from the ground up.
Phase 1 has been in the works since, oh... sometime in April I'm guessing. I did most of the work while I was in Hong Kong, then when I got back at the beginning of July I stepped away from it for two and a half months. Two days ago I said, "Time to put the new stuff up." and now here we are.
Anyway, Phase 1 is complete. The system is good enough to go even with various limitations, inconsistencies, and probably bugs scattered around.
The Phase 2 list is already pretty big, but if you have any questions, comments, bug reports, anb/or feature requests, let me know.
In the mean time, enjoy and be sure to use the social features for any article or post you think is cool!
Yes, I do know that file rooms do not have file directories yet. This will be fixed soon. All the files are still linked to various rooms (I think) so it shouldn't be a problem (providing what I think is correct.) If not, I'll figure something out. In the meantime you can always visit the jazz piano files page in the "other links and resources" below and to the right.
Looking good! I still remember the original forum layout somewhere in the back of my skull. Nice to finally see the 3.0 facelift :)
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.
Volume 3 contains 12 jazz piano exercises and explorations by the acclaimed jazz piano educator, pianist, author, and recording artist Tim Richards.
Volume 4 is by Jeff Brent, a jazz pianist, composer, teacher, and author of "Modalogy" and other acclaimed jazz theory and education books. In this book Jeff shares detailed analysis of transcriptions of live performances. He covers everything from the shape of the songs to the tricks and licks he uses in improvised lines to the ideas behind his lush chord voicings.
