here some strange jazz improvisations, typical what I’m not fond of, but I think there’s a lot of good ideas or technical abilities.
justa child game
good luck for this exercice ))))
His talent is amazing!
Miles Davis - Stella By Starlight

Miles Davis, trumpet
George Coleman, tenor
Herbie Hancock, piano
Ron Carter, bass
Tony Williams, drums
A wonderful jazz radio station from San Francisco.
You will hear a wide variety of modern players and improvisation on this channel - always very authentic.
I hope everyone is listening to more jazz, keep listening and sharing guys!
Listening is one of the most important skills you can develop.
I love it. I’m working on this song. It’s really challenging
Great… enjoy working on this one Micheal.
I think Stella deserves it’s own thread there’s so many recordings that are worthy of study!
Been trying to ID the two chords running through this one - tricky.
Really nice groove here Martin… thanks for sharing, I’ve not heard of these guys before and love their style… particularly the drummer!!
Over the first chord, the melody note is a Db, i usually work out the melody first as it helps rule out some chords.
Then I’m hearing a Gb at the bottom, the chord sounds bright, so maybe a Gb Major chord…
GbMaj9: Gb, Bb, Db, F, Ab, (Db) melody
Also adding an additional 9 at the bottom,
Gb, Ab, Bb, Db, F, Ab, (Db) melody
For the 2nd chord I’m thinking some kind of Gb7#5 chord… I hear D natural in the melody, but an octave down from the melody note of the 1st chord.
Again it’s a dense voicing with lots of reverb so a little tricky to work out.
Anyone else have any ideas?
A great bluesy number from Gene Harris
I’ve always been amazed by the accuracy of Oscar’s 2 handed runs!
His small written studies for young pianists are really nice too, written with intelligence and talent as a teacher
A nice, although pretty advanced, reharm tutorial from Lot2learn on the Beatles’ Eleanor Rigby…
Yes it’s a great resource Marc!
I’ve just uploaded a lesson on Swing Feel check it our here: https://www.pianogroove.com/jazz-piano-lessons/play-swing-rhythm/
It could be nice to ply through the exercises in his book with a swing feel… it would work well on any of the exercises with 8th notes in the right hand - which many of them do.
We all have a lot of practice to swing like Oscar but hopefully one day
Some really nice stuff in there Marc… I’ve always enjoyed Lot2Learn’s performance videos… he’s a very talented musician!
Some interesting quartal applications in there with his 4th voicings.
7notemode playing an absolutely beautiful arrangement of “I Loves You Porgy”. I wonder what happened to this guy. He hasn’t posted anything on his YouTube channel or his website in a number of years. It’s a shame because he is/was such an enormous talent. This is another one I could just listen to all night.
Great performance of a lovely tune!
It has a similar tone to the Bill Evans solo piano recording.
I also like his trio version - particularly the improvisation starting at 1:20s.
This would be a great tune to cover.
Yes I would also love to hear more from 7notemode … he is certainly one of my favourite jazz piano talents on YouTube. Let’s hope he continues to post in the future Mark!
