One of America’s most beloved entertainers divulges his personal tricks of the trade (trills, octave vibrato, “fake runs,” blues riffs etc.) and shows you how to build arrangements and spice up jazz pieces with a variety of easy techniques.
In his only instructional lesson, Steve Allen covers basic blues, boogie woogie, stride, walking basses, the use of 10ths, descending bass lines and more, while he plays and analyzes “Honeysuckle Rose,” “Spring Is Where You Are,” “I’m Confessin’ That I Love You,” “You Can Depend On Me,” “A Time For Love” and other jazz standards.
You’ll get inside tips about the musical contributions of several jazz masters too, including Erroll Garner, Oscar Peterson, Count Basie and Art Tatum in Steve’s entertaining and informative overview of jazz piano. A great springboard to further jazz studies!
