Ever wanted to learn how to make a song sound Jazzy or how to reharmonize a song? I made a video lesson that covers a whole bunch of techniques that you can use to turn any song into a Jazz song.
The techniques I go over include:
- Playing 7th Chords
- Extending the Chords Further
- Altering the Chords
- Choosing appropriate Chord Voicings
- Embellishing the melody
Check it out if you're interested.
It's not good forum etiquite to post a link without any helpful information with it, thanks!
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.
