Art Lande Master Classes
Winter Semester 2017, CU School of Music

All classes meet on Fridays, 1:00PM - 3:00PM.
in Macky's Jazz Room (basement, west side).

Jan20Transforming Musical Problems
Are there any aspects of your playing that you have difficulty accepting or wish you would be different or "better." Let's address them individually and as a group and free up the energy trapped in your dissatisfaction. Think of a piece (or write one) you can use as a vehicle for this process (bring six charts).
Feb24Blues and Bebop Update
How have these tried-and-true forms/styles been used in innovative ways regarding melody, changes, bar structure, rhythm, form and style? We'll apply some of these approaches and play some interesting pieces that invite different ways of playing this music. We may compose as well (bring music paper/pencil).
Mar17The Music of Gary Peacock
Gary has been one of the most innovative bassists in jazz since the 1950s, Playing with Paul Bley, Keith Jarrett, Bill Evans, Paul Motian and yours truly. His compositions involve beauty, dark mystery, interesting harmony and compelling rhythms. We'll play his pieces (written in his own hand) and try to capture their essence. We'll do some listening as well.
Apr7Freedom
You can actually play whatever you want at any moment in the music (with conviction) and it can work fine. Whether comping, soloing, or playing themes, you really have freedom of rhythm, space, meter, harmony, melody, key, mood and style at each moment. How does the band respond or hold . Please learn them if you don't know them.
Apr21Festival Music
A lot of music has been written since the 1960s that is more about motion, shape, phrasing and language, pulse, chords and scales. We'll explore and perhaps write (music paper and pencils please) these ideas as improvisors. Some listening will happen as well.

S

S is a group of musicians that have played together in many different contexts for many years. We are improvisers at heart, and in this band we spontaneously compose the music that may sound like jazz, contemporary classical (new music), salsa, Japanese folk music, or Space Funk. Spoken word and stories are often part of the evening as well.

Caffe Sole features dinner, wine, beer, coffee, tea, desserts and treats before and during the music performances. Another great reason to arrive early and enjoy a notable Saturday evening at Sole.

There are often MANY people attending these concerts at Caffe Sole. It is STRONGLY encouraged that you make a reservation for performances in order to have a seat. Make a reservation or send email to reservations@caffesole.com.
