Following last year’s successful session at the Cambridge Jazz Co-op, I’ll be running another this Saturday, 17th May. We’ll look at various strategies, melodic and harmonic, for improvising over vamps and other harmonically static settings. There’ll be two tunes we use for this:
Dolores in a Shoestand (Esbjorn Svensson Trio):
Wights Waits for Weights (Steve Coleman):
The session starts at 11:00 and runs to 13:30, at the Blue Moon Pub, Cambridge, and costs £10 for members (non-members must purchase annual membership for an additional £10). Full details can be found at the Co-op website.
I’ll endeavor to post some info about what we covered after the session.
