iReal Pro

In case you don’t know about this App, it provides a wonderful way to practice Jazz tunes. You can download it to an iPhone. It’s not free- it costs about $13, but is well worth it. I have used it for years. For anyone here who is working on Jazz tunes, this is the way to go. Of course backing tracks played by humans will always feel better, but this app gives you a lot of flexibility for changing chords, changing the feel, key, tempo, etc. It’s become an invaluable tool for me and I highly recommend it.

Mundell Lowe (1922 – 2017)

Sad to hear my good friend Mundell Lowe passed a couple of days ago in San Diego.

Mudell and I worked together many times since the 1980’s both in Europe and the US.

He was a wonderful jazz guitarist, a highly talented composer for TV and film, and was also a real gentleman.

Here’s the tribute from the Jazz Times on Mundell… a true jazz guitar great….

 

The guitarist Mundell Lowe, whose credits included work with Billie Holiday and Charlie Parker, died on Saturday at his home in San Diego, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. He was 95. Tribune reporter and JT contributor George Varga crafted this profile of the elegant guitarist in 2008. 

“It was a great life,” says Mundell Lowe. “It still is.”

It certainly is for this esteemed guitarist, composer and arranger, whose résumé includes stellar collaborations with enough legends to fill at least one jazz museum.

Happy Holiday Music to you…

If you’re tired of your same 3 holiday records:

Darol Anger’s 3rd Annual Keepin’-It-In-The-Fam Holiday Show with Emy Phelps, Tristan Clarridge, Ethan Jodziewicz, Simon Chrisman and Jacob Ransom at the Alberta Rose Theatre:

Acoustic Music legend Darol Anger joined rising singer-songwriter Emy Phelps in organizing some of the country’s best young string musicians in a multigenerational musical experience focusing on the spirit of Midwinter and the turning of the year.

Anger’s experience with holiday shows from Windham Hill through Newgrange to Yulegrass, his quirky humor, and his genius for organizing exciting bands was in full swing. Multi-award-winning fiddler & Crooked Still cellist Tristan Clarridge, the phenomenal bassist (and Edgar Meyer protege) Ethan Jodziewicz, and hammer dulcimer wizard Simon Chrisman joined Anger and Phelps in December 2015’s concert at the Alberta Rose Theatre in Portland, Oregon for a magical concert filled with spiritual uplift and musical virtuosity…. and some mighty fine fiddling from Tristan and Ethan, as well as Darol.
