Hi all,

Here's one of my pieces for big band, recorded during my first doctoral recital. This one is titled "Shadows from the Past," reminiscing of my Heavy Metal years. Soloists were Ryan Middagh on Baritone Sax., Adam Bartczak on Tbone, and Steve Kovalcheck on guitar.

This piece is available through UNC Jazz Press.

I hope you enjoy it.

"Cry Me a River" lick

Hola todos,

Este es un pequeño video que muestra el uso de un lick muy usado por los grandes improvisadores  de jazz, y que es parte del lenguaje.  Ha sido usado por Coltrane, George Benson, Hank Mobley, Lee Morgan, y muchos otros más.

Espero lo disfruten.

Hi all,

This is a short video that shows a very useful and used lick. It is part of the jazz language and has been used by many of the great jazz improvisors such as Coltrane, George Benson, Hank Mobley, Lee Morgan, and many others.
The video is only in Spanish (so far), but it has notated examples, so it should be useful for everybody. I might make another one in English at a later date.

I hope you enjoy it,
