Jazz Duets

Etudes for Phrasing and Articulation

Series: Berklee Guide Publisher: Berklee Press Format: Softcover Author: Richard Lowell

Learn to play with jazz phrasing and articulation. These 27 duets are in jazz and jazz-influenced styles such as swing, bebop, funk, samba, and others. They are appropriate for performance by any melodic instruments. The duets feature independent contrapuntal lines, and practicing them will give you intimate insight into how these constructs sound and can be used to create a wide variety of colors. You will improve your ear, sense of timing, phrasing, and your facility in bringing theoretical principles into musical expression. You will learn to use: jazz staccato and legato articulations • scales, modes, harmonies and other structures • various meters and ways of interpreting them • phrasing within and between measures • swing feel • and more.
