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. Robert Blagg – Richmond, VA

    Mr. Conti, I received my first DVD, “Corcovado”, last Monday. I am very impressed with all aspects of the production. It goes without saying that the solo is extraordinary. My son, who is 14 and into metal, rock, etc. came home from a week vacation with his aunt. I asked him to listen to me play the solo with my Band in a Box accompanying me. He said “Dad, I’ve never heard you sound like that. That was amazing!” I can’t wait to pull this solo out at my next jam session. Thank you so much. I just ordered “Cherokee” and “12 Bar Blues”. This is the best teaching material out there, and I’ve tried a lot! Bless you for sharing!!!

    Tell Robert that the DVD is “super excellent”, wow great lines and excellent education!

  3. Dave Ruggiero

    Not only does this solo follow in the Conti tradition of taking key harmonic devices and twisting them around and connecting them in interesting ways, but also, at least at my stage in the process, it introduced me to several new devices, including two diminished ideas that will get a lot of mileage and inspire further experimentation.
