Originally released on VHS in 2001

Conti plays a pro level (more challenging than the Ticket To Improv series) solo over the chord changes to an in-demand jazz tune. Then, in his straight-forward approach, he teaches you to duplicate the entire solo, close-up, measure-by-measure, note-by-note. As documented by scores students in written testimonials, and their performance videos, you learn to play jazz, by playing jazz, not talking about modes or scales.

You must get the idea out of your head that you’re “just learning someone else’s solo.” When a child learns to speak, he/she emulates words that they have heard before. No one says to the child, “you’re just learning someone else’s words.” The child learns a word, then another word. The pattern continues until the child can speak in complete sentences (and without knowing the “theory” behind language.) As you develop your jazz vocabulary, you’ll soon reshape the ideas for applications over other tunes. These DVDs are for you if you’ve got serious chops, but don’t know what to do with them. If you practice modes and scales all the time, that’s what your solos will sound like – boring and uninteresting to say the least. Learn hip jazz lines, and have lots of fun doing it.

  1. Brett “axeman” Kahn – Orange County, CA

    Well, I stumbled across Robert Conti’s website while searching the web for Jazz Improvization tips for Green Dolphin Street. My jazz combo really wants me to take off on “Green Dolphin Street”. So, I was in search of some great ideas…I FOUND THEM! Robert’s version is perfect! I can’t play it at the same tempo..but the jazz lines will still work for me. I was using a .73mm pick..but know an ultra thin pick is what Robert recommends…I agree! Highly recommend all material on this site!
