Mimi Fox: Jazz Anatomy (Truefire) - DVD-ROM version
Jazz Anatomy is a hands-on playing course that you can play on your computer that gets you up and running without tedious theory and exercises. In this first volume of Jazz Anatomy, Mimi presents five grooves and progressions that are common to thousands of tunes; Major Blues, Minor Blues, Modal, II V I Major and II V I Minor. Get a grip on these five forms and you'll be difficult to stump at the next jam.
Sample video from her chapter on 'Modal soloing' from the DVD-ROM:
Each form is covered across 8 video lessons, starting with basic concepts, lines and comps, and then progressing to more advanced material. All of the material is easily translated to any key and all solos and examples are transcribed for reference.
Jazz Anatomy is optimized for solid intermediate to early-advanced players and is presented on DVD-ROM, which features all 40 full-length video lessons and includes the complete course with TrueFire's Lesson Player with PIP, zoom, full-screen, slow motion, looping and other handy controls. Please note - no chord symbols are displayed during the Power Tab segments.
DVD-ROM, for use on PC/Mac computers.
