Bluesier Side of JazzFor Flute and CDBy Andrew D. Gordon
As with many students that come from a classical background, it is a difficult transition to learn to play Blues & Jazz. When a musician improvises, they usually have a variety of riffs or phrases that they have developed and learnt over a period of time and can access these phrases instantaneously whatever key they are playing in to create a seamless improvised solo from the phrases they have learnt. The composer's idea for this book is create phrases or riffs over two measures of various Blues progressions. By sub-dividing each ot the 12 Bar Blues progression in the book, he gives a choice of the different phrases or riffs the flutist can use.
