In this information-packed DVD, bassist Ed Friedland reveals the technical and stylistic details behind professional jazz upright performance. Through live band demonstrations and detailed, step-by-step analysis, Ed shows you how to:
- Develop stylistic left and right-hand techniques for maximum tone and sustain
- Arrange scale and arpeggio patterns for greater range and efficiency whether walking or soloing
- Deal with typical live performance challenges – performance protocol, stock intros, endings, trading fours and more
- Play classic stylistic variations including Latin jazz, up-tempo tunes, the “two-feel,” ballads, 3/4 time
- ...and more.
Ed's practical, direct teaching style offers easy-to-understand explanations and methodical demonstrations of each topic. The accompanying booklet includes notated versions of each example for added clarity.
