Monday Music Quote: Diana Krall


 So much of what we do as artists is a combination of personal experience and imagination, and how that all creeps into your work is not so linear.
Diana Krall

Pick Yourself Up Lyrics

Nothings impossible I have found For when my chin is on the ground I pick myself up, dust myself off, start all over again Don't lose your confidence if you slip Be grateful for a pleasant trip And pick yourself up, dust yourself off and start all over again Work like a soul inspired till the battle of the day is won You may be sick and tired but you'll be a man my son Don't you remember the famous men who had to fall to rise again? They picked themselves up, dust themselves off and started all over again

3 Easy Steps to Teach Yourself to Play Jazz

Portrait of Stan Kenton, New York, N.Y.

"Caption from Down Beat: Boyd Raeburn and Stan Kenton: Leaders in the trend towards "modernism" in jazz are, unquestionably, Boyd & Stan. Boyd, the enfant terrible of the movement, made a surprise four-day visit to New York from the Coast for no better reason than that his backer happened to have had a $300 credit with an air line. At the moment, Boyd hasn't actually got a band; but he does have that backer. Soon as a location is wrangled, the Boyd will fly. Stan, meanwhile, is killing them with his Artistry album and winning most of the crowns that last year went to Woody Herman. "

Introduction to Jazz

 Step 1 - Blue Notes

Blue Notes are typically the lowered 3rd, 7th and sometimes 5th degree of a chord. The jazz sound begins by using blue notes.

Example:

C7 = E to Bb to E
F7 = Eb to A to Eb
G7 = F to B to F


Step 2 - The Jazz Chord

Create a jazz chord sound by using blue notes. Play each chord several times.

C7 = C/BbE

F = F/ AEb

G7 = G/BF

C7 = C/BbE

Step 3 - The Jazz Feel

Rhythms in jazz are most important. They are what makes jazz swing.
Practice the following examples several times, and experiment with a "loose" or "jazz" feel. These jazz notes, chords and rhythms are combined  in Straight Ahead.

C7 = C/BbE then play  (r.h. single notes D#, E, C, D)
F7 = F/AEb  then play (r.h. single notes Gb, G, F, Eb, C)
G7 = G/BF then play (r.h. single notes C, C#, D)
C7 = C/BbE, then C/BbG then play (r.h. single notes D#, E, G, E)
F7 = F/AEb, then C/AEb, then play (l.h. single notes Ab, Eb, D, C)
C7 = C/BbE, then B/Eb, then Bb/D, then A/C
G7 = G/BF, then Ab/Eb to C, then G/D then C/C... ending C/DF#A

Monday Music Quote: Dave Brubeck







 “When Brubeck chauffeured Milhaud, who didn’t drive, to the 1947 premiere, the composer pushed the young musician to, as he said, ‘be true to your instincts’ and ‘sound like who you really are.’”



Dave Brubeck

David Warren Brubeck (born December 6, 1920 in Concord, California), better known as Dave Brubeck, is a U.S. jazz pianist. Often regarded as a genius in his field, he has written a number of jazz standards, including "In Your Own Sweet Way" and "The Duke". Brubeck's style ranges from refined to bombastic, reflecting his mother's attempts at classical training and his improvisational skills. Much of his music employs unusual time signatures.
His long-time musical partner, alto saxophonist Paul Desmond, wrote the quartet's most famous piece, "Take Five", which is in 5/4 time. Brubeck experimented with time signatures through much of his career, recording "Pick Up Sticks" in 6/4, "Unsquare Dance" in 7/4, and "Blue Rondo à la Turk" in 9/8, an experimentation begun with his attempts to put music to the odd rhythms generated by various machines around him on his parents' cattle ranch in a small town in the western United States.

Take 5

 Dave Brubeck's classic, Take 5 uses only two chords throughout, for both the main melody and the subsequent improvisations. It's in a minor key (we've chosen F here, but the original the more challenging Eb) and the whole piece rocks back and forth between chords I and V of the scale - F and C, only instead of the traditional major chord on the fifth, we have instead a minor 7th.

So the resulting pattern is F minor - Cminor7

The next step of course is to add the famous five-in-a-bar pattern, giving three beats to F minor and two to C minor.



Melody and improvisation



The main tune (and most of the improvisation that follows) uses a traditional blues scale - here it is in F.
The key to making a convincing Take 5 sound is to move around the notes of the blues scale using the dotted rhythm found in the accompaniment. I've notated a short extract, the midi file has a longer example.

Monday Music Quote: Billy Joel


 “Don't go trying some new fashion
Don't change the color of your hair. . . .
I could not love you any better
I love you just the way you are.”
 “If you are not doing what you love, you are wasting your time.”
“In every heart there is a room
A sanctuary safe and strong
To heal the wounds from lovers past
Until a new one comes along.”
 “Slow down you're doing fine
You can't be everything you want to be
Before your time.”
“I would not leave you in your times of trouble. We never could have come this far. I took the good times, I'll take the bad times, I'll take you just the way you are.”

He is known as the "Piano Man", and not only because that happens to be the name of one of his many legendary songs. When it comes to musicians and songwriters in the world of pop and rock, it's hard to find anyone who has done more with the piano than Billy Joel. One of the main traits of his playing and songwriting is its diversity, running from old fashioned rock and roll and pop, to ballads more influenced by traditional forms. With his songs covering all of the bases of pop piano, you can really get a crash course in a number of different styles and genres, just by exploring his work! As varied as his songs are, though, the more you play and listen to them the more clearly you'll be able to see a certain signature Billy Joel style that comes through in every song.

He gets me my drinks for free

But there's some place that's he'd rather be

"Well, I'm sure that I could be a movie star
If I could get out of this place."

3.Now Paul is a real estate novelist
Who Never had time for a wife
And he's talking to Davy who's still in the Navy

But it's better than drinking alone

4.It's a pretty good crowd for a Saturday
And the manager gives me a smile
'Cause he knows that it's me they've been coming to see
To forget about life for awhile

And the piano sounds like a carnival
And the microphone smells like a beer
And they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar
And say, "Man, whatta you doin' here?"
Oh, la da da ditty da
La da ditty da da dum

(Chorus play last few chords slowly)

CGFC/G
And he's quick with a joke or to light up your smoke,
FG11CF/CCmaj7G11
but there's some place that he'd rather be 
CGFC/G
He says "Bill I believe this is killing me"
FC/ED7G
As a smile ran away from his face 
CGFC/G
"Well I'm sure that I could be a movie star
FG11C
If I could get out of this place"

Chorus

CGFC
Now Paul is a real estate novelist 
FC/ED7G
who never had time for a wife 
CGFC/G
And he's talking with Davy, who's still in the Navy,
FG11CF/CCmaj7G11
and probably will be for life 
CGG
And the waitress is practicing politics,
C/GFC/ED7G
 as the businessmen slowly get stoned 
CGFC/G
Yes they're sharing a drink they call loneliness,
FG11C
but it's better than drinking alone

Chorus

CGFC
It's a pretty good crowd for a saturday 
FC/ED7G
and the manager gives me a smile 
CGFC/G
`Cause he knows that it's me that they've been coming to see
FG11CF/CCmaj7G11
To forget about life for a while 
CGFC/G
And the piano sounds like a carnival
FC/ED7G
and the microphone smells like a beer 
CGFC/G
And they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar
FG11C
and say "Man what are you doing here ?" 

Isn't he great?! Love Billy Joel! :)

Amazing Grace

One of my favorite songs is Amazing Grace. I have played it with gospel chords and here I used some jazz chords for a different sound. I'm thinking I should follow up with a tutorial next time and post the chords. Do you have a favorite song with a special style of playing it?




My friend, Yoke Wong, wrote a great article about practicing the piano.

How Do I Find Time To Practice?

"Would you like to know the answer? Piano practice
sessions do not need to be long.

Have you heard of the 7/20 rule? It's seven
repetitions for 20 minutes. If you can't play
something seven times in a row without making
mistakes, the section is probably too big for you
to work on. Also, 20 minutes is the limit of your
full concentration. After you practice for 20
minutes, you can take a break.


You should always be clear on your short- and
long-term piano goals. Knowing your goals will
help motivate you to practice. A short-term goal
might be that you want to play Rhapsody in Blue
and have it mastered and memorized by Feb. 1st.


A long-term goal might be that you want an active
repertoire of four pieces in 2011 or that you want
to sight-read anything at tempo. So, your
short-range goals determine what you play this
week, this month, but those short-range goals
should always help you move towards your
long-range goals.


The way many pianists typically learn is from the
beginning, the first section/introduction. When
they're fairly accomplished, they dive into the
second section. The second section is never
learned as well as the first. The third section
(save us!) is a disaster! Does this sound like
you?


If so, I advise you to start to learn a new piece
someplace other than the opening section. How
about the middle section? Or the end?


Are you ready to make a good start for this year?"...
