Sage Wisdom

"Good improvisation communicates harmonic progression melodically. Effective melodies manipulate harmonic content through the use of guide tones and preparatory gravity notes, masterfully woven in systematic tension, release, and transparent harmonic definition."

May 6, 2010 | Prep for 'Django in June' Camp 2010
We've put in a plug for Django in June already this year, but we want to give you New Englanders yet another reason to take advantage of the June 15-20 Gypsy Jazz experience. Camp Director, Andrew Lawrence has asked the instructors to offer a solo and transcription which students are invited to study before the camp (and then go over it in class). Jamie Masefield (Jazz Mandolin Project) has done one on the gypsy tune Swing Gitan.

Take a moment to look over the transcription PDF and get excited about this opportunity:
Jamie Masefied; Swing Gitan solo
(First he plays a slightly embellished version of the head, then two choruses)

Audio: The complete solo at full speed
Audio: Head (embellished) at 70% speed
Audio: 1st chorus at 70% speed
Audio: 2nd chorus at 70% speed

We've heard from many who have attended sessions in previous years, and can testify to rave reviews. Get signed up!

Registration: Django in June 2010
