Harmonics for improvisational practice

With Harmonics in Jazz Improvisation Matthias Petzold, saxophonist and jazz composer, offers a treatise on jazz harmony theory and ways to improvise freely. After all, improvisation is the epitome of one's own creative development and a definitive discipline of good music making. The following points are in the foreground:

  • Improvisational practice
  • How to use the tonal relationship of chord progressions to create arcs of tension
  • Examples of great masters of improvisation

In addition to the intensive theoretical study, the contents also have some exercises, listening tips and suggestions for practical application. This results in a versatile informative work with a holistic and varied education.

For a successful jazz career.
