Mark Levine

Mark Levine SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 2 PM

Grammy-nominated pianist and educator Mark Levine shows how to create effective jazz piano arrangements using 4th chords, upper structures, the “So What” chord, the “Kenny Barron” and “Herbie Hancock” chords, and rootless left-hand voicings. Mark has created a “voicing menu” to facilitate matching the melody note at any given point with the best possible piano voicing. Students use “Alice in Wonderland” as a workshop song.

Mark Levine is the author of The Jazz Piano Book, The Jazz Theory Book, and The Drop 2 Book. He has performed with Woody Shaw, Mongo Santamaria, Joe Henderson, Willie Bobo, Bobby Hutcherson, Freddie Hubbard, Cal Tjader, Wallace Roney, Tito Puente, Milt Jackson, David Liebman and many others.
