Jazz great Perico Sambeat will deliver a special workshop on how to master the saxophone and on the essential tools for improvising. He will cover lots of topics including getting a good sound, improving your rhythm, harnessing creative ideas, how to develop the technical facility that allows you to flow; and moving through the chord changes. This workshop is a must for serious sax players whether student or professional – and will also be of interest to instrumentalists of all types.
Jazz Arranging - The Inside Track. Tips And Tricks From The Great Jazz Arrangers - David O'Rourke. Doolan Room, 3pm.
This special session will be of major interest to all arrangers and instrumentalists and will focus on some of the innovative arranging techniques used by famous names such as Robert Farnon, Thad Jones, Nelson Riddle, Johnny Mandel, Duke Ellington, Gil Evans, and more. David O'Rourke will look at both Big Band and Orchestral writing with a focus on some of the trademark devices these writers used. Examples will be drawn from the original scores of some of their most famous collaborations. Participants in this course should have a working knowledge of chord formation and may have written one or more charts already. The material covered will also be of interest to first-time arrangers.
