Now it's time to dig deeper into jazz improvisation in styles ranging from bebop to jazz blues. Mike starts off with an in-depth look at the IIm-V-I progression and the relationships between chords, scales and modes. Through dozens of examples, including scale and chord comping exercises in all the keys, he explains sharp 9 and flat 9/flat 5 chords, the evocative Dorian and Lydian modes, and how to create solos over some dazzling chord changes. Mike examines styles developed by Mike Stern, Tal Farlow, John Coltrane, Wes Montgomery and others, and shows you how to create passing tones, solo lines, octave passages and personal improvisations. He closes the DVD with an exploration of jazz-blues. Intermediate/advanced. Note/diagrams included as either booklet or PDF file on the disc. 80 min.
