Jazz Improv Workshop

End Date: 3/5/2013End Time: 12:00 PM

Event Description:
Renowned jazz musician and author Jamey Aebersold will conduct a jazz improvisation workshop March 5 during the common hour in Morgan Hall’s Learning Resource Center auditorium.

The free workshop is open to the Cal U community and the general public.

Aebersold is an internationally known saxophonist and an authority on jazz education and improvisation. He has developed a series of play-along music book and CD sets designed to help musicians develop their improv skills.

The Aebersold products allow a musician to practice and improvise with the music of well-known jazz personalities, and the recordings employ some of the best jazz musicians in the world. The “play-along” approach has been responsible for changing the practice habits of thousands of musicians around the world.

One of the first to encourage small group classes concentrating on jazz improvisation, Aebersold directs weeklong Summer Jazz Workshops held during the past 40 years in venues across the United States and in Australia, New Zealand, Germany, England, Scotland, Denmark and Canada.

In 1989, the International Association of Jazz Educators inducted Aebersold into its Hall of Fame. In 2004 he received the Medal of Honor in Jazz Education from the Jazz Midwest Clinic, and in 2007 he was awarded the Indiana Governor's Arts Award.
