aramaya 7691@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>In regards to the above interview, there is something profound about having the opportunity to<br /> develop your formative years in a place where there is a living jazz tradition. I had the good fortune to spend<br /> my earlier years at the velvet lounge in chicago. I learned to play by having vincent davis (drummer) hammer me with tempos every week.<br /> There is something that you eventually take on in regards to harmony, language, rhythm, and atmosphere that<br /> becomes a part of you in a way just "shedding" will never provide. In regards to the post perhaps there is a cultural element to the development of harmony, along with the other elements listed, and all of this is an integral part of the player's development.<br /> I haven't lived in Chicago for years, but any time I play with the people I came up with, and even one's I didn't, we have<br /> a common language rhythmically, directionally, etc. It was always interesting for me to hear guys from other places (mostly coming out of academic settings) and how limited, first and foremost, their rhythmic perspectives initially were. Jazz, in my opinion, is urban music and there is an edginess that is hard to develop in rural Indiana or elsewhere. It's as if you need to be functioning at a faster rate to play it, because naturally, the speed of life in New York or Chicago is different than other contexts, and rhythm, being a part of the body, matters. Also, I don't think any academic setting can re-create the rawness of being in a scene, nor can any amount of shedding in a vacuum (though these things are steps in preparation). In the end, if you want to develop the kind of harmony we have been discussing, find a circle of people that are doing that (ie dave liebman), who will allow you the space to develop and help you develop it. Context. </p>

aramaya 7686@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>thought this interview with kurt might be of some interest:</p> <p>"One of the revelations I got from listening to Frank Hewitt is that at the core of bebop there�s an inventiveness that�s also reinventing the harmony as it�s happening; you can take many harmonic pathways through these songs, so the harmony itself is being improvised in a very changeable way. I learned from Frank Hewitt that, in addition to the context and structure, and everything else that already exists in the song, there�s a whole world of imagination and magic. The song is the nucleus, but there�s an entire atmosphere around the nucleus. It�s this atmosphere that is the most exciting and engaging and important thing in the music.</p> <p>Even though you might compare a band that�s playing at Small�s�let�s say Ari Roland and Sacha Perry�with my band, and think that they have nothing to do with each other, the truth is that we have a lot in common. I think mostly it is this concept, this idea, this truth that the most important thing in music is the atmosphere around the literal nucleus of the actual nuts and bolts of the music. But also, there is a language commonality between my band and bebop. Definitely, if you�re going to play in my band, you need to have that foundation, because that language is part of where we�re coming from, even though the rhythms are different and the harmony is different."</p> <p><a href="http://www.jazz.com/features-and-interviews/2008/10/17/in-conversation-with-kurt-rosenwinkel" rel="nofollow">http://www.jazz.com/features-and-interviews/2008/10/17/in-conversation-with-kurt-rosenwinkel</a> </p>

Floatingbridge 7668@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>Yeah, that's tough. Negotiating a sort of compromise. I do feel if it's done with conviction ( whatever it is ) I find it more respectable than the stuff that is attempting to cater to an alleged common denominator that may resonate with me. It is so transparent in jingles what they heard or are shooting to induce.<br /> The metaphor of the play in a foreign language is so apt here. Then again, some are down for the challenge... My wife and I ( who neither of us speak Korean ) found ourselves making a little ritual of dinner and a Korean soap opera. After a couple weeks we would ask eachother what was happening ( if one of us was missing episodes ). We couldn't understand what they were saying but we were hooked regardless. It was so clear: the young man was super successful , carrying the torch in his father's architecture firm; the secretary he was falling for actually dug him all along; she was from the wrong side of the tracks; his family would be ashamed; her family would obviously not have enough cash to throw down for the wedding - which had to be an over the top big deal; what would people say? This was stuff that was so obvious ! But, you have to be open to it despite the challenge. </p>

Matt 7667@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>i think quinticacy and floatingbridge bring up great points about learning and developing our craft.</p> <p>as a general statement coming from a guy who lives in the midwest of america, we cant forget our audience. i think we can dig as deep into harmonic complexity and what not and we will enjoy the sound, other musicians will enjoy the sound, but unless we want only to play for other musicians, we have to either:</p> <p>a) abstain from playing complex music as to attract a larger audience<br /> or<br /> b) teach our audience</p> <p>jazz is, for a lot of people, like watching a play in a foreign language; it sounds nice, they can grasp an idea of what the plot is, etc, but they miss the deeper, more profound themes in it. we, as musicians, i think, must educate them [the uneducated audience] in our language in order to fully communicate. i think that a lot of people would love jazz more than they do if someone introduced them to it in a proper way. </p> <p>i know some guys say,"who cares about the audience? i play for myself, my shit is what matters to me" and i guess that is a valid idea and maybe some degree of that is necessary. </p>

patfarlow 7666@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>Guitar being less complex is truly something only a musician would speculate on. IMO Mile's solo on "so what" is "better" then Holdsworth's solo on "city nights" even though the latter is more complex than the former. Thats just me though. </p>

Floatingbridge 7663@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>As far as examples of miller's relevance to this conversation ( which for me if we are getting a similar picture from your cravings and inquiry I think of these player's structures : the contours , the harmonic depth, the fluidity and flexibility of transitioning or superimposed harmony, the ornamentation, the physical and rhythmic conviction- which really communicates a non accidental statement and command of this stuff), can be found in this clip:</p> <p>Check out this video on YouTube:</p> <p><a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7YNoPecFBO8&amp;feature=youtube_gdata_player" rel="nofollow">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7YNoPecFBO8&amp;feature=youtube_gdata_player</a></p> <p>This is along the lines of the things I hear in veras, felder, crocco, some krantz , some Moreno , some joe Morris . It's the kind of thing that I feel I'm not going to get just from a transcription. Again , my little rant about sleepwalking through a learned ballet. Their command of it isn't a through composed thing or a shtick : it would require the footwork to get this in me.</p> <p>Aside from this, it seems like to get into the " who cares ... Go with the way it sounds " thing is another conversation ( which is totally valid ).<br /> I've seen that many come to music from different places and bring to it or look for different things. Within this broad range, I feel that there is a demographic whose methodology or pressures could benefit greatly from an effortless mastery vibe for a bit. I also can see why people ( liebman perhaps also Outspoken on this ) find that vibe doing a huge disservice to the music, listener and musician.<br /> There is a way and vibe and path which is coming from ' use your ear', period.<br /> You like music that you LISTEN to. You transcribe by LISTENING. Making choice and responses based on what you're hearing from players next to you in real time. Maybe even going as far as to say that checking out all these books and stuff is good coffee table talk but not the 'real deal' . This isn't my notion or some touchy feely thing that I try to tell myself so I can feel better about my playing ( and I have felt like " oh, they're telling me to follow my heart cause I'm old and sucky and should just really ' go with it' and get down with my weekend warrior bad self and just feel like I'm rockin a köln concert in my living room whenever I play ... Because its hopeless to get to some ' successful place' at my juncture.) - no, this is something I've gleaned from a conversation with a P R O ( in my somewhat confident estimation ) to be the way you take care of business Again, LISTENING not as touchy feely but the tough stuff needed to internalize or access things... Or maybe both??).<br /> I have been paying attention to this way more. It is streamlined : you just need your instrument ( and maybe some other minimal tools , tuning tool, paper pencil metronome ) that maybe it. It's harsh and scary but something feels liberating and direct.<br /> I do know listening to things and just really digging it and not needing to know about it ( even if it is within my grasp yo get it under my fingers) . That's cool. That means I'm just really into digging it and I love pretending I am there and straddling hearing even more in how cool something is played and getting higher resolution on the whole intention AND pretending I've never heard it before and living its impact anew . If I think that is going to be enough for me that is fine. But if I think I'm going to be really making some shit in the world and discovering mary had a little lamb in the privacy of my home masturbation köln concerts and then showing the world my research and not ever checkingout what people have done - that is wack. It may also be wack to start from ' I'm going to do things that show people xy or z from the get go and not fishing for what feels right or may just be my mundane current struggle or thing I feel to make.<br /> I still purchase music books. I really am trying to not buy the things. I buy books I know are going to be a more long haul book that requires work . I'm also very happy with my gear: I do not need a different guitar or pedal or amp. I know when I'm postponing the fear of sucking and feeling my limits and running to " I really need this pick to advance my thing ".... ( granted I just posted about neoprene straps ... Aside from spending time on here anyways ). I do believe in the power of a book: if I really check it out and the material is deep , it may take a lot of work but it should be something that is fundamental and improves an overall understanding and informs things previously internalized and feels like a bigger meta deal than some flash in the pan magic tricks . What comes from heavy teachers and books are things that maybe aren't obvious in the current culture or my immediate environments - ideas that weren't shared or if they were , were experienced as only it's real magic and as a fleeting ineffable thing rather than the harsh fact that perhaps some elements can be understood and learned . Thay process of shattering stuff and windows into sounding different forever are super exciting to me .</p> <p>Something I recently read that perhaps appeals to both conversations ( and i realy enjoyed hearing for the first time and yet have something resonate with something )was from an interview with Steve lacy:<br /> " I feel that music can be comprehended from many levels.it can be regarded as excited speech, imitations of the sounds of nature, an abstract set of symbols,a baring of emotions,an illustration of interpersonal relationships, an intellectual game, a device for inducing reverie,a mating call, a series of dramatic events, an articulation of time and or space,an athletic contest , or all of these things at once.A jazz musician is a combination orator, dialectician,mathematician, athlete,entertainer, poet, singer, dancer,diplomat, educator, student, comedian,artist,seducer,public masturbator, and general all around good fellow.as the diversity indicates, no matter what you do, some people are going to like it and other people will not. Therefore all you can do is satisfy yourself , by trusting the man inside". </p>

Quintricacy 7659@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>Maybe he does, I have to admit to not listening to too much of Tim Miller. I've checked a few things and haven't been completely blown away, maybe I'm looking in the wrong place. Suggestions? </p> <p>As for this "There is not much to think about. What do you like about kind of blue? Man, it sounds amazing. I don't care about "what's going on" even if I know. What I do know more than what those guys are playing, is that their feel, sound and mood is awesome.<br /> Is there really anything else more important that those 3 things?" Well if you are just a listener there isn't, if you are a serious musician then yes you have to go beyond just liking the sound. If you are serious about your craft, you have to get into the nitty gritty details of why you like it and sometimes why you don't like it and this is true of all art forms. I think there is a prevailing attitude in jazz music of people saying you don't have to listen to this guy or analyze that guy, just do what you think sounds good and while I believe that at a certain stage of your development you do have to let go of the past and forge your own path, I think it is a big mistake to bypass the what, why and how? stage. If you study literature, you have to check out Joyce, Beckett, Hemingway etc, if you study art you have to go from all the way before the renaissance up to Picasso and Rothko whether you like it or not. It should be the same if we are to call ourselves Jazz musicians. </p>

Quintricacy 7655@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>I suppose I'm coming from the Dave Liebman school of chromatic harmony. I studied with him last August, and did a subsequent tour around Ireland with him in October. Dave's approach is very much got to do with superimposing different chords on top of existing chords, so its coming very much from and Coltrane background and this is a sound that really attracts me. I currently am trying to get through his book How to Approach Standards Chromatically, it's an amazing book full of insights and transcriptions of his solos over really basic standards. If I were to give an example, it would be his solo on Mr.PC with the Airmen of Note, especially the line he plays at 4.10. You never hear guitar players play lines like that.</p> <p><a href="http://youtu.be/lFP-6Ab8htY" rel="nofollow">http://youtu.be/lFP-6Ab8htY</a> </p>

Why we are here?<br /> Because we love his music? what does his music have? melody overall, great compositions, awesome solos that are memorable.<br /> There is not much to think about. What do you like about kind of blue? Man, it sounds amazing. I don't care about "what's going on" even if I know. What I do know more than what those guys are playing, is that their feel, sound and mood is awesome.<br /> Is there really anything else more important that those 3 things?</p> <p>Btw, pianists didn't developed a great sense of rhythm in their solos as guitarist did IMO. If I could hear a pianist playing like Adam Rogers, now THAT would be awesome. </p>

jazzbum 7641@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>I think this is a really interesting topic, and I appreciate that everyone is approaching it with civility. Also I think Quintricacy has opened an interesting dialog. However, what this is all lacking is concrete musical examples. All these terms - "outside" "modern" "hip" "advanced" are getting bunched together and we are forgetting that each player has a specific aesthetic that is unique.</p> <p>I am interested in some specific examples - transcribed - that reflect this gap between guitarists and other jazz instrumentalists. In my own transcription I haven't found it necessary to do this kind of work because I am too busy internalizing the sounds to really care about this idea that guitarists are behind the curve. </p> <p>Quintricacy (or anyone else) - i'd be really interested in a specific example within a line or approach that you have found.....perhaps in my work I will come across something as well. </p>

Floatingbridge 7629@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>With veras and loueke my only complaint is those godins ( what's wrong with the sound of the guitar?) . It is so mid centric and does not do nylon strings justice. </p>

Floatingbridge 7628@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>With garzone and guitar, check out Chris crocco... There is a YouTube of him doing giant steps which shows his ease with garzone's Triadic chromatic concept . </p>

aramaya 7627@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>@quintricacy. I am asking this so I understand clearly what you are looking for. Are you saying players who extensively play sets of subs over a given chord? for example if the chord is F7, then player plays substitution set C#-7/Gbmaj#5/Amaj#11 etc. Harmony within harmony? inefficent, but example 1/8 note line: (C C# E F#) (F Gb Bb D Db F) (Eb C# A G#)<br /> or are you looking for something else?</p> <p>Edit: I'll leave this comment, but disregard it. Going take some time and check out lionel loueke. </p>

Gia5 7624@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>I think that the evolution of the guitar has just been "delayed" for some reasons. In the 60's while Hancock, Shorter, Henderson &amp; others were developing new complex aspects we had yes great guitar players, but only in the hard-bop direction, exception made for Jim Hall, which anyway had more a sideman relevance at that time. In a workshop in the late 90's I asked Kurt what were the reasons of this delay of harmonic evolution in his opinion, and he said to me that maybe it was because guitarists didn't know their instrument THAT well.<br /> But today, due to the work of Joe Diorio and Mick Goodrick, and the hundreds of talents they educated, directly or indirectly, I think that this gap is filled, and guitar is perfectly up to date. Of course the nature of the instrument itself can't let you hit a slash over slash over slash chord a la Richie Beirach. And the prominence of some peculiar new add in the language, may it be the Messiaen modes, or ragas (there's a guitar player, can't remember the name, wich plays sometimes with Vijay Ijer, that uses them) doesn't compromise the actuality of other guys who plays in a pan-chromatic way, like the ones some of you named here...Nir Felder comes to my mind first, together with Monder. I know some guys who are really deep into the triadic chromatic approach of Garzone, for example. So, I don't see this distance no more.<br /> Said that, i agree with Matt, all of this has nothing to do with the quality of music itself.<br /> "Avantguarde is in the feeling" said the great Massimo Urbani. </p>

Quintricacy 7623@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>Nice points everyone. I get the feeling though, that you think I am saying that people like Rosenwinkel, Monder etc are irrelevant or not "modern" enough or something like that. I love all these guys playing, I wouldn't be on this forum if I thought otherwise. As for some of your points Aramaya, Dharma Days is up there in my top 10 albums. Yes, Kurt's solo is great, yes it's a 16 bar blues, but if you look at the chart most of the chords are harmonically more advanced than a typical blues and for the most part he is playing within the changes of the form although it can sound like harmonic substitutions as he's the only chordal instrument on that album.</p> <p>I guess there are many ways to approach harmony chromatically and there is a specific sound that I'm searching for. And for me personally, I have only really found that sound or something close to that sound with Lionel and Nelson on guitar. </p>

Din 7620@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>It's funny, because I can't picture Hancock, Miles, Coltrane, Shorter, Rosenwinkel, Monder or anybody of that level having a conversation like you guys are having. </p>

Floatingbridge 7618@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>This is getting down to personal taste as they are both excellent guitar players. Monder's conception harmonically ( more in your face than his melodic sense ) clearly secures his footing in the territories of advanced guitar harmony and chromaticism , period. Nelson Veras' flexibility with rhythmic material and his neutral relationship to harmony (as it appears and is expressed melodically- evidenced in many YouTubes ) may give an impression of his capacities but I disagree that this is somehow beyond monder at all. It takes a lot of objectivity in approach to harmony and rhythm to be a sideman with Steve Coleman no doubt. As for holdsworth , harmony ( as expressed melodically ) is where he shines: accessing an unprecedented coltraneness on the instrument. As for harmony in a chordal sense i think this side of him is obfuscated by his aesthetic choice of the foggy timbres he chooses which frankly make it difficult to truly hear in an unambiguous manner all the voices in a given chord his intervallicconception towards for lack of better term pandiatonicism is very cool but I think more so as a conceptual leap of the autodidact more than advancing anything in a broader world for harmony ... But definitely for guitar it is/was pretty wow. Anyways, this is not connected to your larger point and is arguably a subjective detail.<br /> Part of it is the nature of the instrument: redundant appearances of a given pitch and the sheer visual component as to the neck's layout make it easy to somnambulate through changes with learned grips rather than honest decisions in the moment. There is this huge value on learning the neck visually ( position playing, boxes, etc) .it is a result of it yielding results. You can learn a lot of cool voicings by site- not the notes . How many people learned a lot of cool chords for no reason other than that someone said it was cool and then years later someone else or a book showed you to take a chord and then look at each voice and move each voice on the same string set to the next diatonic voice of the chord to arrive it it's subsequent inversion? Very different thinking. In dealing with the miller goodrick book it's quick to see that I need to shift thinking and expect less sooner: memorizing a few guidelines and tricks or pivot points isn't going to get this concept internalized in a holistic manner. I cannot sleep walk from Dbmajor triad to Cb( yes, I said it) 7 no 5 any more. I'm getting honest mileage from seeing these as two little pools of notes and the actual notes inside each and then in a seperate notebook jotting down any other way of organizing the connection ( ...but even that is a way of attempting to have a referential shorthand available rather than keeping myself flexible throughout a WAY of doing things).But , thats my challenge.<br /> think of how horn players really don't have the luxury to bust out their instrument on their 13th birthday and even do shitty versions of enter sandman. It could be weeks before their embochure is strong enough to approach a note and not a quavery fart. They don't care about shapes and tabs... They only know Db major as having Fs &amp;Abs &amp; Dbs. Piano players have nor redundant ways to sound a note and 10 fingers at the ready AND the upside of a visual layout, they can access to more voices simultaneously and execute rhythmic independence with far less ballet and sweat... And they also don't care about tabs.<br /> Lastly, (and correct me if I'm wrong ) could a lot of this have to do with some practical issues at odds with this material in the face of standard jazz repertoire - people's ideas reconciled with true or alleged ideas of etiquette or aesthetic expectations of 'the tradition' and when you show up what you're supposed to have down and what you should be up to and knowing what to NOT DO on the gig ? What I means is if I'm to understand the inquiry correctly, why arent you seeing more of this from jazz guitar players out there? Perhaps the bulk of that population are not the current handful of people (who are in demand in mainstream to moderate fringe jazz guitar) who are in demand predominantly NO LONGER OR NOT AT ALL for their interpretations of standards but for them generating their own ' modern - cutting edge ' shit? Put plainly, densely chromatic stuff is not going to be all over the place in people's music that are trying to carry the torch of stuff or Django fests. Making your own music and systems and fertile landscapes to make a home for these ideas and generate and germinate more seems to be a logical way to present this stuff . With in a world a logic... Not the crazy weirdo playing shit on ' wave ' at the wedding reception. When it has been done in standard repertoire, the most popular example has been from the biggest proponent and exporter of this ( as you, quintricacy -know so well from having played with the man himself who wrote the book on it: ' a chromatic approach to jazz harmony ' - Dave liebman ),they have done so from the platform of ' this is the deep shit. We are the heaviest dudes at the forefront of the reharmonization thing. This is not zany stoner crazy shit. I know why that note is against that chord and I can rubic's cube around that shit all day because I have skills'- high academia vibe type of thing... I mean that very respectfully. </p>

aramaya 7617@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>Aren't the things you are asking for what kurt innovated (IMO) in his early career? How much time have you spent listening to the next step and the mark turner album dharma days (i am asking this with an honest tone, no snarky attitude)? Kurt's earlier style was pretty different from where he has gone now. Tone as well (though the overdriven tone was in use; ie chris cheek's "vine"). The other thing I think people overlook in their hunt for harmony is the ability to play innovative melodies. 70% of trane's sound, even on Transition and Sun Ship, is about playing melodies. There became a mixture between lines (which in some respects function more similarly to drum fills) and melody which guided the direction of the content. If there is anything that is lacking in guitar, it is the ability to have sustain and body for long tones, hence the trend in overdrives, to get more of a saxophone tone. I think kurt may have said this himself in an interview.<br /> Also, trane had a deep capacity for theme and variation with his melodic fragments (Impressions, village vanguard 1961).</p> <p>How many live recordings of there of trane playing giant steps? One of my mentors said that was an etude for a time and place and then he left that shit behind. It was a point in his growth, but not the pinnacle. </p> <p>Herbie's quartal innovations from the mid-60's can be heard in the lines of kurt, peter bernstein, and others once you know the sounds. Transcribe Kurt's solo on the 1st tune on dharma days (iverson's odyssey). Also, both peter bernstein and larry goldings' solos on the tune Asimov on Sweet Science and you will see melodic use of the kind of harmony you are asking about. When you get to depth with melodic usage of quartal harmony, it's a lot more than some fancy patterns. And the manner one can contrast the symmetry of quartal sets and inversions is incredible. </p> <p>Any time you are playing Octatonic or whole tone, you are playing messiaen's modes. The other limited transpositions are based off more or less tetrachords involving the root and tri-tone. again, contrast of sets and symmetry. </p>
