With Sebastian Noelle:
The Modern Jazz Ensemble class offers the opportunity to study the styles of jazz between the 1960s and the present, and incorporate them into one’s own playing. The Modern Jazz Ensemble class will focus on seminal instrumentalists and composers from this period, such as Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Pat Metheny, Joe Henderson, Ornette Coleman, Keith Jarrett and Steve Swallow, among others. All of these players have a strong background in bebop but went on to push the boundaries of jazz with their innovative approaches. We will also explore improvisational concepts linked to this period, such as outside playing, pentatonics and ‘free’ improvisation. The primary focus will be performing, with secondary focus on listening, analysis and composition. When choosing the repertoire, Mr. Noelle will take into consideration the students’ individual abilities and preferences. Intermediate and advanced level.
