<div><em><span style="font-family:Georgia;">"Latin jazz is jazz with Latin American rhythms. Although musicians continually expand its parameters, the term Latin jazz, is generally understood to have a more specific meaning than simply jazz from Latin America. A more precise term might be Afro-Latin jazz, as the jazz sub-genre typically employs rhythms that either have a direct analog in Africa, or exhibit an African influence.</span></em></div>

I do like Jazz. I play Trombone and used to be in a Jazz band as well as a Dixieland combo. I have not played in some years though. I may start playing again if I am able to make the time for it. I even played in the Kennedy Center back in my High School days...that was fun.

Ooooooh! In, please!<br><br>
I got my first CD player as a Christmas gift in 1990. I also got my first jazz album that day -- Erroll Garner's <i>Concert by the Sea</i>. A few days later, I went down to the local Best Buy to look for another jazz album, and walked out with Miles Davis's <i>Kind of Blue</i>. I've been hooked ever since.

Do you play instruments for that or is it purely theoretical studies? We don't have those studies in the Netherlands, looks like fun <img alt="tongue.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/tongue.gif">

I'm actually a saxophone player. The degree has a heavy emphasis on performance. With any luck, I'll be studying with Bob Mintzer next year!

Woot, I played a lot of his tunes previous years. iIRC it was called 15 easy Jazz etudes and then there was one for intermediate jazz and funk. I've also played 3 books of Snidero. I'm practising improvising now though over the Aebersold tracks (Maiden Voyage).<br><br>
I'm an alto sax player. Do you have any tips on improvising and getting a better sound?

I got good at improve by listening to improve....a lot of improv. First copy it and then make your own following the basic essentials... you know key, tempo, and style <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
practice make the best sound....because your embrasure becomes stronger and then you can concentrate on refining your sound.....<br><br>
also..how's your Vibrato?? swing is the same just not as quick. Bending the notes with your embrasure <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif">

My music teacher tells me that I use too much vibrato and bending. He keeps on telling me that I need to play more straight.<br><br>
I'm listening to improvs a lot too but I can't play what I think if you know what I mean. I'm having a hard time translating what's in my head to notes. I'm practicing chord progressions now.<br><br>
My setup is:<br><br>
Jupiter 769RB Colorado sax<br>
Otto Link Metal 7* mouthpiece<br>

then play straight...because there is such a thing as TOO much swing lol<br><br>
Dont focus so much on jazz music. try some scales. but molodic (sp?) minor and stuff like that. Also are u using a leather ligature? Maybe a plastic mouthpiece would suit your style better. Its a bit harder to bend notes on it. I cant for the life of me remember the model number of my selmer sax but it wasn't cheap lol<br><br>
Tho i did start off with a pawn shop $300 alto that i still play better then my high dollar selmer. <img alt="lachen.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/lachen.gif"><br><br>
Rico reeds are the beez knees!! lobe them!! tho I have to use 3s or 3 1/2s because if I use 2s i can snap them.. lol effects of playing the barri too much..now thats fun to swing on!! <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif">
