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.
Review on Jazz Master product:
This is my first experience with Conti's methodology and it's fascinating - unusual compared with most other approaches, but it seems to work! Looking forward to trying some of the others.
Review on "Jazz Master" Product:
I like his explanation of fingering the left hand and that he explains that he has transcribed a jazz standard do that it fits within a box. I think it is a fantastic idea and will be working on it as I go through the course.
I'd like to express my gratitude. I'm having so much fun with these DVDs! Great lines and Mr. Conti makes it look so easy. Thank you! Best regards from Munich. Pete Zinndorf
Thanks so much Robert for such a fine product. I first became aware of you while watching Truefire TV. I was so impressed with your version of One Note Samba, especially your playing style and touch that I made up my mind immediately that I want to play like you with my own voice of course. Your improvised solos over such classics as All Blues, Summertime, One Note Samba and all the others are a fantastic and wonderful way for me to finally learn how to effectively solo over these pieces. I have been playing for many years and your teaching method is really quite amazing. Thanks again for all the music. Your Fan, and Customer for life.
