You’ll Hear It - 7 Stars

Hello Peter, Adam, Open Studio team. This is a very good podcast.

You guys are solid players, have excellent sensibility on who to listen to, how to listen to it, and what is actually going on in the music.
My piano understanding and playing has improved a lot this past year, and it is mostly due to more practicing. But also due in part to YHi. Hope to build more Jazz Skills, learning more tunes and doing some transcribing/listening. Thanks again and hope you guys keep doing it in 2021.

I’m in Santa Barbara so hopefully they bring back a jazz fest and you can come out. Otherwise as an Omaha NE native I have friends in STL. so I can come visit some time too. Any Jazz recommends for SB or OMA?

I am operating within another discipline, I find that the advice is applicable in the abstract to the stuff I am creating too. ‘Architecture is Frozen Music ‘. Notions of ‘understanding the changes but playing outside’ and so on. Composition/Improvisation is the same art across disciplines- Visual art is not as great for podcasts I suppose. So the mixture of the commentary, required listening, and live jamming on the Hammer88s results in a pleasant but rigorous listening experience. The discussion is high level and I am able to relate it to what it is that I do, meanwhile also taking it as face value technical music advice and learning chord structure and so on too.

Appreciate all the advice on ‘Music and life Combing At Ya ‘

Thanks
Nick

Also, perhaps I missed the in-joke - but, why does computer science pioneer Ada Byron Lovelace always get a shoutout when wrapping up tunes ?

Much needed!

I love jazz
