As an American jazz artist and educator based in South Africa since 1999, this is one in a set of pieces that reflect my musical and other experiences in this fascinating country. Kwazulu Zam was composed using a traditional South African song form called mbaquanga. Mbaquanga is a characteristic South African musical form that utilises a repeated (cyclical) 2 or 4-measure harmonic structure based on I - IV - V - I and I - IV - 1 6/4 - V - I. These progressions are the backbone of South African jazz much like the blues and its variants is to American jazz. The piece is performed in the kwela style which is based on a strong swing feel. The original meaning for kwela during less fortunate times was “kwela–kwela; hurry, hurry, the police are on the way.” Much like early jazz and throughout the swing period, the use of riff based playing and soloing was common. Bennie Moten’s and Count Basie’s early bands come to mind, and are just two examples of great riff based ensembles with exciting riff based soloing. Performance Tips The melodies or riffs in Kwazulu Zam must swing. Play them with a loose, relaxed feel. Really dip or slide into the notes that are marked. Intervals of a fifth or larger marked with slides should really be scooped and vocal in nature. Please note that African music and particularly South African jazz, is vocal and organic in nature. This tune is written in the Kwela/Swing style. It can also be played on a more traditional Mbaqango style. To get to know Kwela you can listen to recordings by Hugh Masekela, Darius Brubeck and Afro Cool Concept; also Paul Simon’s “Graceland,” for a better understanding of Mbaqango. Notes on Soloing Pay attention to the rhythm of the themes; play off rhythms found in the piece as well as playing rhythmically. The solo improvisation section at letter C should pay particular attention to the use of, and drawing from the three themes of the piece. Backgrounds and interludes can be very flexible. For example, B and C can be cued by signaling the number 1 for the background at letter B. Signal 2 for the background at C or 3 for both B and C. A closed fist indicates the last time when repeated more than once. Letters B & C can be played between solos or as a background building to the next soloist or just optionally letter C between solos. The solo background at letter C also has the option of being repeated more than once if your soloist is cooking and your rhythm section is grooving! Experiment too with dynamic shapes during repeated backgrounds that will add excitement to the background and influence the soloist. Even experiment with interchanging letters B & C as solo backgrounds. It is important to note that playing contemporary jazz phrases or licks really doesn’t work and is out of context or style of the piece. Play in the style, play rhythmically, use material from the three themes to develop and build your solo. Most importantly have fun!!! Mike Rossi Instrumentation: 3 melody instruments, piano, guitar, double bass, percussion

The Spanish composer and pianist Isaac Manuel Francisco Albéniz’ (y Pascual) fascinating and eventful biography is informatively described in the relevant specialist literature; with a few clicks, though, you might also do some successful research on the internet. Albéniz is considered to be the father of Spanish national music per se. Incorporating rhythms and melodies typical of Spanish folk music, he succeeded in embedding folcloristic elements in virtuoso compositions for the piano. Sevilla is the third movement of the Suite Española No. 1 for Piano, Op. 47. The final version of the suite contains eight characteristic pieces. The title of each one of them refers to a geographical region or city in Spain – including Cuba! The folcloristic and improvisational character of Sevilla results from memorable motifs with characteristic embellishments in the melody, - the imitation of other instruments (guitar, castanets, …) in the setting for piano, asymmetrical phrases,the unexpected appearance of new motifs,noticeable fluctuations in tempo and dynamics,unanticipated modulations, the “faulty” compositional structure (e.g. octave parallels between melody and bass in measure 11), and especially from the rhapsody-like middle part with its virtuoso and at the same time cantabile melody in the upper part. The arrangement presented here is notated one whole tone lower than the original version and has been written according to the proven principle of translating: “as true to the original as possible – as free as necessary”. The movement can be performed as a quintet but also in a choral/orchestral instrumentation. In the latter case, the middle part with the soprano saxophone solo (measures 76 – 79 and measures 104 – 110) is recommended to be executed by five soloists. Instrumentation: 5 saxophones (SAATBar) op. 47

Time and rhythm are king! Number one! We are constantly aware of this fact when we are playing or listening to improvised music. All notes seem to sound good when they are played with good time. Even melodies that use wrong notes sound good when played with good time. What often packages a good time feel are the rhythms a particular artist chooses to use. This book hopefully lends some insight into practicing and playing creative rhythms in a melodic way. (Jerry Bergonzi) The CD provides 10 standard chord progressions, each played in two different tempos by Bruce Barth on piano, Dave Santoro on bass, and Adam Nussbaum on drums. In addition Jerry demonstrates various approaches and exercises on tenor saxophone. Instrumentation: melody instruments

Hard Bop
14,90 CHF *

It's nineteen fifty-something, in a dark, cramped, smoke-filled room. Everyone's wearing black. And on-stage a tenor is blowing his heart out, a searching, jagged saxophone journey played out against a moody, walking bass and the swish of a drummer's brushes. To a great many listeners--from African American aficionados of the period to a whole new group of fans today--this is the very embodiment of jazz. It is also quintessential hard bop. In this, the first thorough study of the subject, jazz expert and enthusiast David H. Rosenthal vividly examines the roots, traditions, explorations and permutations, personalities and recordings of a climactic period in jazz history. Beginning with hard bop's origins as an amalgam of bebop and R&B, Rosenthal narrates the growth of a movement that embraced the heavy beat and bluesy phrasing of such popular artists as Horace Silver and Cannonball Adderley; the stark, astringent, tormented music of saxophonists Jackie McLean and Tina Brooks; the gentler, more lyrical contributions of trumpeter Art Farmer, pianists Hank Jones and Tommy Flanagan, composers Benny Golson and Gigi Gryce; and such consciously experimental and truly one-of-a-kind players and composers as Andrew Hill, Sonny Rollins, John Coltrane, Thelonious Monk, and Charles Mingus. Hard bop welcomed all influences--whether Gospel, the blues, Latin rhythms, or Debussy and Ravel--into its astonishingly creative, hard-swinging orbit. Although its emphasis on expression and downright 'badness' over technical virtuosity was unappreciated by critics, hard bop was the music of black neighborhoods and the last jazz movement to attract the most talented young black musicians. Fortunately, records were there to catch it all. The years between 1955 and 1965 are unrivaled in jazz history for the number of milestones on vinyl. Miles Davis's Kind of Blue, Charles Mingus's Mingus Ah Um, Thelonious Monk's Brilliant Corners, Horace Silver's Further Explorations--Rosenthal gives a perceptive cut-by-cut analysis of these and other jazz masterpieces, supplying an essential discography as well. For knowledgeable jazz-lovers and novices alike, Hard Bop is a lively, multi-dimensional, much-needed examination of the artists, the milieus, and above all the sounds of one of America's great musical epochs.

Fire! Fever! Flame! Temperament! – these are the terms most often used to describe Latin American music. Each of us has at least once been electrified by these unmistakable rhythms, this joy of life and this „esprit“. The Latin Smile endeavours to capture the essence of this kind of music and to put its spirit down in notes. The piece consists of two themes – to be played now in unison, now in several voices – and of two interludes providing the musical setting for the themes. Rhythmical accuracy is a special qualification every musician has to fulfill to perform this composition. The complete piece is played fast and as hot as possible. Just imagine the following scenery : All the streets of the city are alive with people, everybody is singing and dancing, everywhere there is music; and never-ending is the night ... Instrumentation: 4 clarinets (3 clarinets in Bb and bass clarinet in Bb)
