Here are a links to a few of the key threads in the Jazz/Commercial Forum. Several of these were previously "sticky" threads at the top of the forum. To clean up the forum view, we've replaced those stickies with this one thread that has pointers to the others. If you have other nominations for threads that should be on the list, please PM Moderators.

Hello!

I'd like to invite anyone interested in learning jazz improv to visit my
thread "Jazz Improvisation, Jamey Aebersold" by clicking on the link
above. I have designed the thread as a method book which can take
players from the very beginning up to a fairly advanced level of jazz
improv using the Jamey Aebersold play-along books and CDs as the
foundation.

This thread will allow players to learn at their own pace in a step-by-
step fashion. Each of these 150 lessons can be studied and mastered
at your own pace as you apply everything learned to the "play-along"
tracks. I've been teaching improv using these book/cd sets for many
years now, and I can assure you success if you will stick to a gradual
plan of daily study. All the information is given in a very logical order
to make it easy to understand.

I hope you will try this out and join in the fun. There is nothing more
satisfying than simply closing your eyes and being able to play what
you feel!! I love jazz so much, I just can't imagine a world without it.

Your Friend, Tom in Texas

One of the best threads, ever! Has helped me exponentially.
Tom, were there going to be 50 or so more lessons, or you
gonna save those for the book?
Peace,

Hi Yamahaguy and everyone else,

I definitely will be writing many more lessons to add to this thread!! It
should eventually have about 200 lessons in all. When this thread first
began it was named "Thread of the Week" for 15 straight weeks.

I'm honored to have been appreciated by so many!! I hope people will
benefit from this project for many years to come. Below are just a few
of the comments I've received about this thread.

Are you kidding me?????? This is the thread of the YEAR!!!!! This is so awesome!!!!

CRJAZZMAN wrote:
Thank you, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!! 40+ years old and been playing lead all my trumpet life. Always wanted to get into improv. This stuff is pure GOLD! Now I can start a more deliberate path to organized creativity! It removes the confusion by getting it stripped down and keeping it simple so we can "get it". Thanks again!

JasonHarrelson wrote:
For anyone wishing to take the leap to improv...follow Tom's advice. I've had the pleasure of hearing him play and believe me, his words are as solid as his own playing.

Tom, where were you 25 years ago when I needed this???? People, and particularly you youngsters, this is pure gold! To be able to couple this instruction with the Jamey Aebersold play along CDs is one of the best ideas I've seen on this site since the BE forum! Thank you for this excellent tool...

Robert Rowe wrote:
You have paved the way for many of us to progress with our studies and further our understanding of many confusing improvising concepts. Thanks for your contributions. I have a great deal of admiration and respect for you. You are "giving back" something to the world.

Pat Harbison wrote:
Tom, If you edit these posts into chapters or just take these posts to a good editor or co-writer you'll have one of the best improv books on the market. This stuff rocks! PH

davo wrote:
Tom, Your lessons are just too terrific for words. I'm filling a binder of your lessons and plan to take some time and study only these lessons for as long as I can without distraction. Keep 'em coming. I'm sure that many others out there feel the same way. You are presenting an organized, cohesive process for becoming a proficient improviser. Thanks for all you do.

LondonHusker wrote:
Tom has obviously put a great deal of his heart and soul into constructing the lessons contained on this thread. These efforts display both his passion for music in general and for sharing with others his love for jazz improvisation in particular. This thread has become a valuable resource for many new to jazz improvisation as well as many of us who work daily with young jazz musicians. I encourage Tom to continue sharing his insights with the rest of us. His efforts are most appreciated.

Tom, You should consider publishing this material... it is fantastic. I just read your last two lessons...and I think you HAVE caputred the essense of learning jazz in a very eloquent way. Keep it coming! JB

Gene wrote:
Tom, thank you ever so much for doing this. I have just today seen the thread. As a comeback guy with a forty year lay off this is great. I have being intriged with Jazz and improvising, but how does a 55 year old man learn to do it... You have very graciously answered that and in a way that is fun to follow. Let me go find the books. Wonder how long it will take me to catch up to lesson 129!!!

Carlos Cuenca wrote:
Dear Tom, I would like you to know you have a new student. Man, your lessons are simply great! It's systematic, and most importantly, really progressive! I'm just beginning with your classes, but I'll definitely look forward to following your program. Great work, great way of sharring your experience!!

I stumbled onto TH and was really impressed with the knowledge shared by all on this forum, but frankly you blew me away with this thread. I'm amazed that somebody would dedicate this much time and energy to sharing this kind of information. You've given me even more incentive to practice and to get my chops back into shape. Thankyou.

MFMeow wrote:
Hi Tom, Big thank you! I've decided it's high time I learn to improvise. I've always loved jazz, but improvising was a big mystery to me and I was extremely envious of those who had crossed that bridge. I decided that I'm an intelligent person and I should be able to figure this stuff out. It's all about baby steps. I just recently started with Aebersold Book 1, and I wanted to thank you for all the time you've put into this and for making improvisation more accessible. Kirsten

................................................................................................................................................................

I really hope many more people will join in the fun... If you've thought
about learning how to improvise before but just didn't know how to get
started, simply click on the link in the first post above!! You may begin
an adventure that can bring you satisfaction and joy for a lifetime!!

Let's not congest this thread with a bunch of chit chat or it will turn into a book. Just the facts mam. Moderators?

Here is a link to a list of tunes and a little thing on jam session etiquette that I thought was cool and appropriate.
