Jazz guitar is certainly not the easiest style of music to learn how to play, but if you’re already a rock or blues player then you already know more about playing jazz guitar than you might think you do. Jazz (like rock) is rooted in the blues. Understanding the common threads between the styles is the key to making the transition to jazz much easier and quicker. David Becker’s Transitions To Jazz identifies those common threads and shows you how to tweak what you already know into versatile jazz applications, vocabulary and dialects.

Jazz guitar is a wide open place where innovation, interpretation and experimentation run rampant. All of the rules are meant to be broken and the music is played in the moment. One player's ceiling is another player's floor and you can study the form for years and still be nowhere. All this is why we love it so. Jazz is also a highly subjective art form where beauty clearly is in the "ears" of the beholder. There's much debate amongst players about virtually every quality of Jazz but everyone seems to agree that the best way to learn jazz guitar is to listen and study with a master.

Toni Morrison - Jazz
Italian | Frassinelli | 1993 | ISBN: 8876842438 | 237 pages | EPUB | 3 MB

Harlem, 1926. Joe Trace un venditore cinquantenne di cosmetici, uccide Dorcas, la giovane amante di diciotto anni. Al funerale della ragazza, Violet, la moglie di Joe, cerca di sfigurarne il cadavere. Questa è in sintesi la trama del romanzo, ultima, superba prova del Premio Nobel Toni Morrison. Ma il significato e il valore dell’opera si collocano ben oltre il puro intreccio. Essa è soprattutto un ritratto della società nera che una voce narrante - uomo o donna? al lettore la risposta - intesse con un racconto il cui ritmo ricorda il jazz e che spazia tra la New York degli anni Venti, dall’incedere frenetico, e la Virginia del 1880, dall’atmosfera più lenta e lirica. Joe e Violet rappresentano quel flusso migratorio di neri che all’inizio del Novecento lasciò le zone rurali per riversarsi nella Città: ed è in quel mondo segnato dal razzismo e dalla segregazione che si sviluppa una love story a tre, carica di passione e tragedia.
