Lee Konitz Talking & Playing

AddToCartYellow

* For ALL Instruments:
Take a look inside the World of a true Jazz Icon discussing & demonstrating How to Play Jazz

* Part Documentary, Part Performance & Masterclass

* BONUS: a truly classic 60-minute Interview, covering six decades (!) of Jazz History

The preeminent cool jazz saxophonist, having performed and recorded with Claude Thornhill, Lennie Tristano and with Miles Davis on his epochal Birth of the Cool, Lee Konitz counts easily as one of the most distinctive voices on alto saxophone.
Konitz recorded dozens of albums as a leader and recorded or performed with Dave Brubeck, Ornette Coleman, Charles Mingus, Gerry Mulligan, Elvin Jones & Jim Hall.

In this video, part documentary, part musical master class, Konitz, in an intimate duo setting with frequent collaborator, pianist Dan Tepfer, openly and candidly discusses his unique approach on how to play jazz and the improvisational process.

He also shares countless fascinating anecdotes, reaching as far back as the 1940s, covering encounters with Lennie Tristano, Warne Marsh, Miles Davis, Charlie Parker, and many more.

Lee discusses and performs:

* Practice Tips
* Sing & Play How-to-Play-Jazz Exercises
* Collective Composition
* Solo Pieces
* Importance of Rhythm
* Playing Free
* How to approach Jazz Standards
* Making the First Free Jazz Record
* Birth of the Cool & Miles Davis
* Lennie Tristano teaching him and Warne Marsh
* Meeting Charlie Parker

And LOTS more covered in this unique How to Play Jazz Lesson…

PLUS: a fascinating 60-minute Interview, covering six decades (!) of Jazz History.

This DVD captures Lee’s wit and wisdom, and his conversations with pianist Dan Tepfer allow the viewer the unique experience of being able to eavesdrop on two musicians as they discuss their thoughts on jazz improvisation.
I highly recommend this DVD to anyone wishing to get inside the thinking process of this great jazz master.
I think JazzHeaven has provided a very valuable tool at an extremely reasonable price (remember, you’d pay between $50-100 per hour to study with any of these musicians privately!) to players looking to expand their musical horizons.
