Description: In this “Horizontal Improvisation” jazz piano masterclass, pianist Jeff Colella shows you how to play musically through the chord changes. Jeff discusses how to avoid the limitations and traps of vertical chord scale thinking, so that you can improvise fluently across the form. If you’re caught up in a “station to station” way of soloing and you want to learn how to phrase musically within jazz standards, this piano masterclass is for you.

Topics Covered: Piano, Improvisation, Thinking Horizontally, Playing Through Chord Changes, Chord Tones, Melody, Voice Leading, Phrasing, Form, Jazz Harmony, Guide Tones, Target Notes, Hearing The Direction, Following the Melodic Shape, Using Rhythm, Common Tones, Motifs, Etc.
