Park Stickney – Jazz Harp: Fun for All (without any Existential Crises)
Sat, 10 April 2021 @ 10:00 am – Sun, 11 April 2021 @ 5:15 pm BST
In this virtual, yet hands-on, up-close class, we’ll use a harpful of jazz standards as a means to explore jazz techniques and theory (writ large), and (let’s just say it), some generally interesting musical ideas. Here’s a non-comprehensive list: improvisation, comping, lever/pedal slides, harmonic risk-taking (and risk-management), rhythmic epistemology (don’t panic!), and, judging from this description, “stream-of-consciousness”-hyphen-use combined with a freewheeling approach to punctuation and musical reality.
