When: Sat., Feb. 13, 2-4 p.m.
Students of all levels will benefit from this workshop on how to avoid the monotony of “head-solos-head.” By listening to and studying transcriptions of classic recordings, we'll look at ways to employ devices like riffs, shout choruses, intros, codas, modulations, tempo changes, send-offs, verses, backgrounds, tags, vamps, interludes, trading, breaks/stop-time, etc. Students will walk away with lead sheet transcriptions of arrangements by Dizzy Gillespie, Benny Goodman, Richie Powell, Horace Silver, Tadd Dameron, Jimmie Noone and others. We'll also discuss the craft of spontaneous arranging "on-the-fly."
