LJS

Absolutely phenomenal. Step by step approach to understanding the building blocks of the genre of jazz and how to improvise. And this works. Within a very short time I was getting it. But most importantly this is a practical podcast which not only talks you through it but demonstrates with good real life jazz standards examples. In 2 words ‘thank you’.

A very good resource

Having been predominantly a classical musician, as a late-comer to learning to play Jazz and even understanding the medium, I find this podcast a very good resource for the learning I have to undertake. Thanks.

Great podcast

This is an excellent podcast. Wonder if we could hear a little bit on the modes of the melodic minor as I’m shedding that at the moment.

Loving all the content though
