Hi guys and girls!

I've put together a video about the material I researched when doing my jazz masters degree two years ago. I was dedicating my thesis to Woody Shaw, trying to look for ways to translate his adventurous harmonic choices into new jazz language. I didn't want to just literally copy him, because that's just repeating history, but use his knowledge to design models that created new patterns which I could use in my improvisations. I hope there's something useful in it for you! And feel free to comment, because there is a certain 'grey area' when working like this and I'm curious what your thoughts are about it!

Hi Teus,

That was fantastic. The tools you developed allowed you to create new sounds that are still clearly influenced by Woody Shaw. How has your own playing been affected after practising with these exercises?

I'd be really interested to read your thesis and get some more details. Is it available anywhere?

Thank you Teus!
Interesting information for me. Now I'm learning Ritchie's books. I'm also looking for my language and trying to create my own exercises. This is a space theme for development. Good luck!
