This class will draw on the deep connection between blues and jazz centered around the era of the late 1950’s through the 1960’s when Blues/Jazz artists created so many of the iconic tunes of this genre that are still favorites today. Through the music of greats like Herbie Hancock, Jimmy McGriff, Wes Montgomery, Ray Charles and more, this interactive class – which will allow for a lot of hands-on playing and class discussion – will explore the Blues/Jazz genre and dig into the rhythmic, stylistic and harmonic characteristics that make it so groovy and timeless! A fair level of comfort with your instrument is recommended for this class which is open to all instruments, including vocalists.
