BOP CHOPS! How to Improvise Over Rhythm Changes - Dmitri Matheny - ONLINE WORKSHOP

When: Sat., Feb. 20, 11 a.m.-1 p.m.

Second only to The Blues, George Gershwin’s “I Got Rhythm” is the most popular song form in all of jazz.This workshop provides an overview of Gershwin’s original song, its most familiar contrafacts, and several modern adaptations, including the “Slow Boat To China” variant, Jimmy Heath’s “CTA” walk down, Thelonious Monk’s circle of fourths reharm, and others! You’ll learn how to: negotiate the complexity of Rhythm Changes at a bright tempo; simplify the progression to major and minor key centers; outline each chord using tetra-scales, arpeggios and enclosures; employ tritone substitutions for greater lyricism; and more!
