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).

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.
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.

TAJ, tim art and josh


Tim Wendel - (guitar)
Art Lande - (piano)
Josh Reed - (trumpet)

TAJ was created in 2016 by Tim Wendel, Art Lande, and Josh Reed in order to play new, challenging, original music. Exploring beauty, complexity, and the possibilities inherent in the guitar, piano, and trumpet, this band offers each musician the opportunity to play any and all musical roles. This shifting of roles and opportunities is fun to listen to, and the flexibility and communication needed to make it work bring the music into the present moment and away from the jazz conventions in traditional formats with bass and drums. This Colorado trio has roots in New York and Philadelphia, and spans 40 years of life and musical experience. Each player has an original voice and the band has a unique sound, content, and improvisational approach. Our first concert, come and listen!

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.
