About Gypsy Jazz: Soup to Nuts:
This lesson will introduce swing repertoire and techniques developed by Django Reinhardt and violinist Stephane Grappelli in France in the 1930’s in the group, The Quintette du Hot Club de France. This uplifting swing style offers short, fun melodies, with space for soloing that can often be boiled down to one five-note scale. Tunes will be organized and taught through specific practice approaches and skills.
Backing Tracks and triple-clef notation for a large number of Gypsy Jazz tunes included.
