Support New Artists!?!?

          I just bought an album from trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire, saxophonist Walter Smith III, pianist Gerald Clayton, bassist Harish Ragavhan, and drummer Justin Brown. The music is powerful and moving- I couldn't help but send out a link. Here's the album's opening song.

Project 7 beat

    Now's the time to start the polyrhythm, although "polyrhythm" may not be the right word to describe 7/4 time signature. Pretty much every single jazz standard in 4/4 can possibly be transformed into 7/4 (4/4 + 3/4 repeating alternately) but here's some examples: Like Someone in Love and The Girl from Ipanema. One of my friends once asked a pro drummer how he felt it at a fast tempo. The answer is blowing in the wind, but he said he felt and counted it like a Clave (see music sheet of Like Someone in Love).

Like Someone in Love

alternately repeat 4/4 and 3/4 for each bar.

music sheet: Like7.pdf

The Girl from Ipanema

divide a bar into two. count the first half as 4/8 and the second as 3/8

music sheet: will never come. just figure it out yourself.


 

Project Coltrane Change

    Chords in typical jazz standards progress by the variation of the dominant motion. II-V or III-VI-II-V are the representative. This is strongly an instinctive resolution, however, the drawback is that it sometimes sounds a little too inelegant. The history of jazz (or general music) might be seen as the history of replacing this progression by something more sophisticated.

    The Coltrane change, as seen in Giant Steps, is jumping of the tonality by the major three interval (B to G, then to Eb, and back to B). There should be more precise definitions but I'm lazy enough to ignore them. The song sounds somewhat like an etude. Maybe it is. If you perfectly master the Coltrane change, you may also be able to use it for ad lib reharmonization in another song.

26-2

A typical Coltrane change based on the melody of Confirmation. A little more tranquil than Giant Steps.
