Improvising on Chord Changes
Visiting artist Greg Abate covers essential techniques for improvising over standard jazz chord progressions. Topics include recognizing and soloing over key areas in various II-V progressions, effective use of chord tensions, and augmented and diminished scales as applied to the dominant seventh chord. Open to all, bring your instrument!
Grammy-nominated saxophonist Greg Abate has performed with the Ray Charles Orchestra (lead alto/flute) and the revived Artie Shaw Orchestra (jazz tenor saxophone). He has released 15 recordings as a leader and is a clinician for the Conn-Selmer instrument company.
