Mark Levine

Mark LevineSUNDAY, OCTOBER 20, 2 PM

Blues and rhythm changes continue to be the most commonly played chord progressions in jazz, largely because they are both highly pliable forms open to reinterpretation. In this workshop, Grammy-nominated pianist/educator Mark Levine guides students through basic, intermediate, and advanced concepts covering the various chord changes that are played, voicings great pianists use, solo ideas, blues waltzes, blues with different changes, alternate rhythm changes, and much more.

Grammy-nominated pianist Mark Levine is the author of The Jazz Piano Book, The Jazz Theory Book, and The Drop 2 Book (Sher Publications). He has performed with Woody Shaw, Mongo Santamaria, Joe Henderson, Willie Bobo, Bobby Hutcherson, Moacir Santos, Freddie Hubbard, Cal Tjader, Wallace Roney, Tito Puente, Milt Jackson, Francisco Aguabella, Harold Land and David Liebman.
